ACCT3230 Cost Management Projects CableTech Bell Corporation (CTB) operates in the telecommunications industry. CTB has two divisions: the Phone Division and the Cable Service Division. The Phone Division manufactures telephones in a large plant in Ohio. The product lines run from relatively inexpensive touch-tone wall and desk phones to expensive, high quality cellular phones. CTB also operates a cable TV service in Ohio. The Cable Service Division offers three products: a basic package with 25 channels; an enhanced package which is the basic package plus 15 additional channels and two movie channels; and a premium package which is the basic package plus 25 additional channels and three movie channels. The Cable Service Division reported the following activity for the month of March: Basic Enhanced Premium Sales (units) 50,000 500,000 300,000 Price per unit $16 $30 $40 Unit costs: Directly attributable $3 $5 $7 Driver traced $2 $4 $6 Allocated $10 $13 $15 The unit costs are divided as follows: 70 percent production and 30 percent marketing and customer service. Direct labor cost is the only driver used for tracing. Typically, the division uses only production costs to define unit costs. The preceding unit product cost information was provided at the request of the marketing manager and was the result of a special study. Bryce Youngers, the president of CTB, is reasonably satisfied with the performance of the Cable Service Division. March’s performance is fairly typical of what has been happening over the past two years. The Phone Division, however, is another matter. Its overall profit performance has been declining. Two years ago, income before income taxes had been about 25 percent of sales. March’s dismal performance was also typical for what has been happening this year and is expected to continue —unless some action by management is taken to reverse the trend. During March, the phone division reported the following results: Inventories: Materials, March 1 $ 23,000 Materials, March 31 40,000 Work in process, March 1 130,000 Work in process, March 31 45,000 Finished goods, March 1 480,000 Finished goods, March 31 375,000 Costs: Direct labor $117,000 Plant and equipment depreciation 50,000 Material handling 85,000 Inspections 60,000 Scheduling 30,000 Power 30,000 Plant supervision 12,000 Manufacturing engineering 21,000 1
