The Bad Man Wagon (BMW) Company is a fully integrated automotive maker. To meet unexpected demand its Assembly Division makes an offer to purchase 90,000 batteries from Electrical Div @ $104 per battery. The cost for producing the batteries by the electrical division is a follows:
- Direct Material $40
- Direct Labour $20
- Variable Overheads $12
- Fixed Overheads $40
Electrical Division has capacity for 350,000 and has been selling 250,000 per year @ $136 each. The Assembly Division had been buying batteries from outside sources for $130 each.
