Make vs. Buy Analysis Direct materials Direct labor Factory overhead Purchase price Total incremental costs Make $ 0.45 0.50 0.25 ---1.20 Buy ---------$ 1.20 $ 1.20 Scrap or Rework FasTrac has 10,000 defective units that cost $1.00 each to make. The units can be scrapped now for $.40 each or reworked at an additional cost of $.80 per unit. If reworked, the units can be sold for the normal selling price of $1.50 each. Reworking the defective units will prevent the production of 10,000 new units that would also sell for $1.50. Should FasTrac scrap or rework? Scrap or Rework Defects
Scrap Now $ 4,000 $ 4,000 Sale of Defects Less rework costs Less opportunity cost Net return Rework $ 15,000 (8,000) (5,000) 2,000 Example
Sales (150,000 units) Costs and expenses Direct materials Direct labor Overhead Selling expenses Administrative expenses Total costs and expenses Net income $2,250,000 300,000 600,000 150,000 225,000 385,500 1,660,500 $589,500 The company has an opportunity to sell 15,000 additional units at $12 per unit. The additional volume would create the following incremental costs: (1) total overhead would increase by 15% and (2) administrative expenses would increase by $64,500. Example Example
Roland Inc. has been manufacturing its own shades for its table lamps. The company is currently operating at 100% of capacity, and variable manufacturing overhead is charged to production at a rate of 50% of direct labor cost. The direct materials and direct labor cost per unit to make the lamp shades are $4 and $6, respectively. Normal production is 40,000 table lamps per year. A supplier offers to make the lamp shades at a price of $13.50 per unit. If Roland Inc. accepts the supplier's offer the $40,000 of fixed manufacturing overhead will have to be absorbed by other products. Should Roland buy the lamp shades from the supplier? Example Consider the following data for two products made and sold by FasTrac.
