11. You have to approve an expenditure for $255,000 today, for a project that your manufacturing manager says will generate $50,000 in net cash inflow for the next seven years. Your companys expected rate of return is 7%. The NET PRESENT VALUE of this proposal is:

SHORT ANSWER (The more explanation you give, the more it can help!)

1.The firm of Fortunato & Luchesi forecasts that theyll make the following unit sales in the first four months of 2010:

January 50,000 units
February 60,000 units
March100,000 units
April 80,000 units

At the end of 2009 their Finished Goods inventory was 15,000 units. At the end of every month they intend to have 30% of the following months projected sales in their Ending Inventory of Finished Goods.

Given these facts, prepare in good form a Production Budget for the first quarter only, showing for each month how many units the company will be required to manufacture. Dollar calculations are unnecessary.

2.The firm of Moes & Martell (in their standard costing system, variable overhead is absorbed on the basis of direct labor hours) has the following overhead information for January 2010, during which 400 units were actually produced.

Standard: 2 feet at $1.50 per foot.$3.00
Actual: 2.1 feet at $1.60 per foot.$3.36
Direct Labor
Standard: 1.5 hours at $6.00 per hour.$9.00
Actual: 1.4 hours at $6.50 per hour.$9.10
Variable Overhead
Standard: 1.5 DL hours at $3.40 per hour.$5.10
Actual: 1.4 DL hours at $3.10 per hour.$4.34

TOTAL UNIT COST$17.10$16.80

GOALS: From the provided information, compute the following variances, and show whether each is Favorable (F) or Unfavorable (U).

a)Materials price variance
b)Materials quantity variance
c)Direct labor rate variance
d)Direct labor efficiency variance
e)Variable overhead rate variance
f)Variable overhead efficiency variance
