• Arfaei Company manufactures chairs. Because the efforts of manufacturing are approximately equal between labor and machinery, management is considering other possible cost drivers. By considering different cost drivers, it is anticipated that the estimating process can be improved. The following cost estimating equations with their r2 values have been determined for 20x3: 1. X = cutting time y = $19,500 + $20X r2 = 0.65 2. X = labor y = $5,000 + $25X r2 = 0.49 3. X = machinery y = $44,500 + $5X r2 = 0.55 Chapter 10 Chapter 10
• Required: a. Which equation should be • selected for the analysis? b. What other factors should be • included in the selection of the estimating equation? Chapter 10 Chapter 10
A Equation 1 for cutting time is slightly better than the other two equations based on r2 values. B Other factors to be considered are economic plausibility, the significance of independent variables, and specification analysis. The best cost drivers of the dependent variables are those that meet all these criteria plus that of best coefficient of determination Chapter 10 Chapter 10
