Economic Order Quantity Model: CoEvolution Of POM With The Business Curriculum
Roach, BillThis paper describes the simultaneous evolution of the POM course and the business curriculum at the Washburn University, School of Business. The EOQ model is used to illustrate the process. 
High Eccentricity EOQ Total Cost Function Yields JIT Results
Roach, BillFor perishable inventory, the hold cost H is much larger than anticipated by the classical EOQ formula, orders of magnitude larger. For perishable inventory, the EOQ total cost function is pointed rather than flat. This ... 
Looking At The Economics Order Quantity Model Using The Mathematics Of Conic Section
Roach, BillThis paper uses the mathematics of conic sections to develop measures of the pointedness of the EOQ total cost function. 
Origins of the Economic Order Quantity Formula
Roach, BillThis paper speculates on how the Economic Order Quantity (EOQ) formula was developed. These speculations are interesting and useful for several reasons: 1.) The speculations help scholars understand the creative process ... 
A Post Modern Look At The EOQ Model: Deconstruction Of The Total Cost Function Leads To JIT
Roach, BillWhen the hold cost H is much larger than anticipated by the usual textbook treatment of the EOQ formula, order of magnitude larger, the EOQ total cost function is pointed rather than flat. This pointedness logically causes ... 
Using Dimensional Analysis to Teach Production/Pperations/Supply Chain Management
Roach, BillScientists and engineers have been using the concept of dimensional homogeneity since it was introduced by Fourier (1822) "...every undetermined magnitude or constant has one dimension proper to itself, and the terms ...
