Last Year Now
Units Produced 1,000 1,000
Labor (hours) 300 275
Resin (pounds) 50 45
Capital invested ($) 10,000 11,000
Energy (BTU) 3,000 2,850
Show the productivity change for each category and then determine the improvement for labor-hours, the typical standard for comparison.
Also, if Eric determines his costs to be as follows:
• Labor $10 per hour
• Resin $5 per pound
• Capital 1% per month of investment
• Energy $.50 per BTU
Show the productivity change, for one month last year versus one month this year, on a multifactor basis with dollars as the common denominator.
