1 294 Assignment #4 Question 1 (25 marks) In 2010, Duxon Company is operating at 80% of its maximum capacity (consistently all year) of 250 direct labour hours per day. The company makes a single product used in the plumbing industry and sells all of its regular production. They anticipate that they will be able to maintain this level of sales in the foreseeable future. The company is also seeking ways to fully utilize the excess capacity and is considering an offer from a plumbing retailer to supply 10,000 units as a special order at a price of $32 per unit. The order is due in exactly 60 days. The regular selling price is $40 per unit and the standard production costs are as follows: Direct labour (per 1/2 hour) $12 Direct materials $ 8 Variable manufacturing overhead $6 Sales commissions $5 Fixed over head per unit $1 The company will not consider overtime production as a matter of policy and the production manager must fill the special order, if it is accepted, from the available capacity. The company works only Monday through Friday, 50 weeks per year. There will be no commissions or other administrative costs associated with the special order. The customer will not accept the order if it is delayed beyond the 60-day deadline and will not accept an order quantity less than 10,000 units.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
