    Re-order Level = Max usage x max lead time
    = 130 x 26
    = 3,380

    Minimum Stk level = re-order level - ( avg usage x avg lead time)
    = 3,380 - (100 x 20+26/2)
    = 1,080

    Max stk level = re-order level + re-order quantity( EOQ) - ( min usage x min lead time)
    = 3,380 + 400 - (60 x 20)
    = 2,580

    Hi, Spring Flower,Thank u very much!

    At the 1st calculation for re-order level, i even was stucking there by the formula told us:
    Re-order level= (Max usage X Max lead time) + Mini level
    i was looking for to find out the Mini level, but from your answer, Is that means we can omit that --(Mini level) when the situation not given to us?

    Re-order Level = Max usage x Max lead time + Reserve Stock(i.e given in your question,oftenly says additional stock also).

    In your case, No additional stock mentioned.

    Also,as far as I know there is nothing to do with mini level while you calculating re-order level. Still i would recommand that double check with your tutor.
