Metallica Co is an engineering company that manufactures a number of products, using a team of highly skilled workers and a variety of different metals. A supplier has informed Metallica Co that the amount of M1, one of the materials used in production, will be limited for the next three-month period.

The only items manufactured using M1 and their production costs and selling prices (where applicable) are shown below.

Product P4 Product P6
$/unit $/unit
Selling price 125 175
Direct materials:
M1* 15 10
M2 10 20
Direct labour 20 30
Variable overhead 10 15
Fixed overhead 20 30
Total cost  75   105 

* Material M1 is expected to be limited in supply during the next three months. These costs are based on M1 continuing to be available at a price of $20 per square metre. The price of M2 is $10 per square metre.

REQUIREMENT

Metallica Co carried out some market research which suggested that a change should be made to the selling price of both Product P4 and P6. As a result, the new contribution per unit for P4 is $85 and for P6 it is $95.

The following scenario relates to questions 1 – 5.

Scenario

The Telephone Co (T Co) is a company specialising in the provision of telephone systems for commercial clients.

T Co has been approached by a potential customer, Push Co, which wants to install a telephone system in new offices it is opening. While the job is not a particularly large one, T Co is hopeful of future business in the form of replacement systems and support contracts for Push Co. T Co is therefore keen to quote a competitive price for the job. The following information should be considered:

  1. One of the company's salesmen has already been to visit Push Co, to give them a demonstration of the new system, together with a complimentary lunch, the costs of which totalled $400.
  2. The installation is expected to take one week to complete and would require three engineers, each of whom is paid a monthly salary of $4,000. The engineers have just had their annually renewable contract renewed with T Co. One of the three engineers has spare capacity to complete the work, but the other two would have to be moved from Contract X in order to complete this one. Contract X generates a contribution of $200 per engineer per week. There are no other engineers available to continue with Contract X if these two engineers are taken off the job. It would mean that T Co would miss its contractual completion deadline on Contract X by one week. As a result, T Co would have to pay a one-off penalty of $500. Since there is no other work scheduled for their engineers in one week's time, it will not be a problem for them to complete Contract X at this point.
  3. 120 telephone handsets would need to be supplied to Push Co. The current cost of these is $18.20 each, although T Co already has 80 handsets in inventory. These were bought at a price of $16.80 each. The handsets are the most popular model on the market and are frequently requested by T Co's customers.
  4. Push Co would also need a computerised control system called 'Swipe 2'. The current market price of Swipe 2 is $10,800, although T Co has an older version of the system, 'Swipe 1', in inventory, which could be modified at a cost of $4,600. T Co paid $5,400 for Swipe 1 when it ordered it in error two months ago and has no other use for it. The current market price of Swipe 1 is $5,450, although if T Co tried to sell the one it has, it would be deemed to be 'used' and therefore only worth $3,000.

The following scenario relates to questions 1 – 5.

Scenario

Rotanola Co manufactures mobile phones. It has been extremely successful in the past but the market has become extremely competitive. The company is considering a number of different strategies to improve its profitability.

The most successful product is the RTN99 which is sold for $110. Weekly demand is currently 20,000 phones. Market research has revealed that if Rotanola Co reduced the price of the RTN99 by $10, demand would increase by 2,000 phones.

Each time the phone is produced, Rotanola Co incurs extra costs of $30 for materials, $18 for labour, $14 for variable overheads and $23 for fixed costs, based on expected weekly output of 20,000 phones. The most expensive component in the phone is the battery which costs $15.
Rotanola has been offered a discounted price of $12 by the supplier if it buys 22,000 batteries per week.

REQUIREMENT

What is the total cost function for the RTN99 after the volume discount?
