Unformatted text preview: tribution, while an hour used to produce Air Max shoes generates only $180 shoes Dr. Hussein Khasharmeh Dr. Hussein Khasharmeh Now suppose that neither shoe has enough demand to Now fill the entire capacity, but the combined demand will more than fill the capacity. In this case, it is better for the company to produce Air court to satisfy the Air demand of the customers, after that the company can produce Air Max. This depends on the relative use of capacity by the two products. Suppose the facility can produce 7 pairs in stead of 5 pairs from Air max shoes per hour of machine time. Then the Air Air Max would be the most profitable use of plant capacity. It would have a $252 (7 pairs X $36/ pair) contribution for each machine hour compared with Air Court is $200 (10 pairs X $20/pair) as shown below: Dr. Hussein Khasharmeh Dr. Hussein Khasharmeh Air Court Air Max Air Contribution margin from Contribution 10,000 machine hours: 10,000X10 pairX$20/pair $2,000,000 10,000X10 10,000X7pairs X$36/pair 10,000X7pairs Contribution margin/machine hour: $2,000,000 ÷ 10,000 hours $200 $2,520,000 ÷ 10,000 hours $2,520,000 $252 It is shown from the analysis that Air Max shoes will It have more contribution margin/unit of capacity – per hour or per 10,000 hours.
