Optimal Use of Limited Resources Suppose the factory can produce seven instead of five Air max shoes per hour of machine time Air Mac shoes are 26% more profitable than Air max (252 200)/200 = 26% AIR Court AIR Max Contribution from 10000 machine hours 10000*10*20=2000000 10000*7*36=2520000 Contribution per machine hour 2000000/10000 = 200 2520000 / 10000 = 252

Optimal Use of Limited Resources In retail stores, the limiting factor is often floor space. The focus is on products taking up less space or on using the space for shorter periods of time. Retail stores seek faster inventory turnover (the number of times the average inventory is sold per year).

Optimal Use of Limited Resources Regular Department Store Discount Department Store Retail Price $ 4 .00 $ 3.50 Costs of merchandise and other variable costs $ 3.00 $ 3.00 Contribution to profit per unit $ 1.00 (25%) $ .50 (14%) Units sold per year 10,000 22,000 Total contribution to profit, assuming the same space allotment in both stores $ 10,000 $ 11,000 Faster inventory turnover makes the same product a more profitable use of space in a discount store.

Illustration of Sell or Process Further Suppose the 500,000 liters of Y can be processed further and sold to the plastics industry as product YA. The additional processing cost would be $.08 per liter for manufacturing and distribution, a total of $40,000. The net sales price of YA would be $.16 per liter, a total of $80,000.

Illustration of Sell or Process Further Product X cannot be processed further and will sell it in the market at the split off point Product Y should be sold or Can further be processed into YA? Relevant information is the answer. Joint costs : known as past costs and cannot affect anything beyond the split point. Separable costs and revenues beyond the split point should be focussed

    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.
