Q.2.           M/s Excellent Dashboard Private Limited (EDPL) is situated at Gurgaon in Delhi. The company supplies dashboard assembly as 4PL supplier to Maruti Udyog Limited (MUL) since past 3 years. There are number of components in the dashboard like speedometer, level gauge, etc. EDPL purchase these individual components from various suppliers and assembles them at their works for onward supply to MUL.

One of the major components namely “Starter Switch” is always the problem. Since the EDPL does not observe any Systematic Inventory Control Methods in their purchasing activities, they just order the quantity as and when the demand arises. As this product is not available off the shelf, many times delays occur in arranging for MUL. This in turn, results into financial loss to EDPL due to penalties imposed by MUL as per the agreement, towards delays in supply of Dashboard Assembly.

The information gathered from EDPL shows that the annual demand of the item, Starter Switch is 5000 nos. The unit price of the item is Rs. 50 each. The inventory carrying cost and ordering cost is 20% and Rs. 40 per order respectively.
