PeopleBooks notes that Economic Order Quantity (EOQ) calculation is based on 'u', amongst other variables, and u = the Item's Standard or Average Cost depending on the Item Cost Method.

What about the Actual Costed Items? Why can't the EOQ be calculated for these Items?

EOQ (Economic Order Quantity): Select to calculate economic order quantities for your Business Unit. The 'Replenishment Parameters' process calculates the EOQ by using the industry standard calculation, as follows:

EOQ = SQRT ( (2 * d * c) / (i * u) )

d = last calculated annual demand for an Item,
c = order preparation cost of EOQ defined on the 'Setup Replenishment' page,
i = annual inventory carrying cost percentage defined on the 'Setup Replenishment' page, and
u = the Item's Standard or Average Cost, depending on the Item's Cost Method.
