Workshop One Acct 3104 Semester 2 2009 24 August Question One – Product Mix Oversport manufactures and sells sports equipment. It currently produces and sells 5000 pairs of in-line skates each year operating at a maximum machine capacity. Oversports market research has revealed that it could sell 8000 pairs of in-line skates annually. Undersport a nearby supplier has offered to supply up to 6000 pairs of in- line skates at a price of $75 per pair. The Oversport manager has noticed a current snowboarding craze in the market and believes that Oversport could sell up to 12,000 pairs of snowboard bindings annually. Oversport management accountant summarizes the available data: Manufactured Inline Skates Snowboard Bindings Purchased Inline Skates Selling price $98 $60 $98 Cost per unit Purchase - - $75 DM $20 $20 - Variable machine operating cost ($16 per hour) $24 $8 - Variable and fixed manufacturing overhead (allocation base machine hours) $18 $6 - Variable marketing and admin cost $9 $8 $4 - Fixed manufacturing overhead costs of $30,000 are not affected by the product mix decision - Fixed manufacturing overhead costs are allocated to products based on machine-hour rate, which is calculated by dividing total fixed manufacturing overhead costs of $30 000 by machine hour capacity - Fixed marketing and administrative costs of $60,000 are not affected by the product mix decision.
