Rolling Thunder Bicycles: Data Generator (Inventory)

Generate Inventory Orders. An EOQ model goes through each day. It examines current usage rates and computes the optimal ordering quantity. You can force the model closer to a JIT system by setting the time frame down to daily (instead of monthly). However, daily ordering is next to impossible in the real world since many components are shipped from Japan. Additional delays can be set with the Average Order Delay.

You can also control costs by specifying the percent increase and average discount. If you want to add more randomness to the pricing, increase the price deviation.
