The following scenario relates to questions 1 – 5.

Scenario

Cherry Co has two independent divisions, A and B. Division A produces product X. B is a new division which produces product Y. It requires units of product X to produce product Y.

However, due to the success of product Y, B is now a permanent division of Cherry Co. Management wants A to provide at least some units of product X to B.

The table below shows the contribution margin for each division when B purchases X from an outside supplier.

B A
$ $
Selling price per unit 150 37
Variable cost per unit
   (Div B does not include the cost of X) 65 30
   Cost of X purchased from outside suppliers 35
Contribution margin per unit 50  7 

REQUIREMENT

1 / 5

The following scenario relates to questions 1 – 5.

Scenario

Jamair is one of a growing number of low-cost airlines in the country of Shania.

Jamair's strategy is to operate as a low-cost, high-efficiency airline.

The airline was given an 'on time arrival' ranking of seventh best by the country's aviation authority, which ranks all 50 of the country's airlines based on the number of flights which arrive on time at their destinations.

The average 'ground turnaround time' for airlines in Shania is 50 minutes, meaning that, on average, planes are on the ground for cleaning, refuelling, etc for 50 minutes before departing again.

The number of passengers carried by the airline has grown from 300,000 passengers on a total of 3,428 flights in 2007 to 920,000 passengers on 7,650 flights in 2013.

The overall growth of the airline has been helped by the limited route licensing policy of the Shanian government, which has given Jamair almost monopoly status on some of its routes.
However, the government is now set to change this policy with almost immediate effect, and it has become more important than ever to monitor performance effectively.

REQUIREMENT

The following performance measure has been suggested for Jamair:

Improve on the 'on time arrival' ranking of seventh best in the country's aviation authority ratings.

To which perspective of the balanced scorecard does this measure belong?

1 / 5

The following scenario relates to questions 1 – 5.

Scenario

Squarize is a large company which started as a pay-TV broadcaster and then started offering broadband and telephone services to its pay-TV customers. Customers could take advantage of discounts for 'bundle' packages of all three services.

All contracts to customers of Squarize are for a minimum three-month period. The pay-TV box is sold to the customer at the beginning of the contract; however, the broadband and telephone equipment is only rented to them.

In the first few years after product bundling was introduced, the company saw a steady increase in profits. Then, Squarize saw its revenues and operating profits fall. Several reasons were identified for the deterioration of results:

  1. In a bid to save cash, many pay-TV customers were cancelling their contracts after the minimum three-month period as they were then able to keep the pay-TV box. The box comes with a number of free channels, which the customer can continue to receive free of charge, even after the cancellation of their contract.
  2. Some bundle customers found that the broadband service that they had subscribed to did not work. As a result, they were immediately cancelling their contracts for all services within the 14-day cancellation period permitted under the contracts.

In a response to the above problems and in an attempt to increase revenues and profits, Squarize made the following changes to the business:

  1. It made a strategic decision to withdraw the bundle package from the market and, instead, offer each service as a standalone product.
  2. It investigated and resolved the problem with customers' broadband service.

It is now one year since the changes were made and the finance director wants to use a balanced scorecard to assess the extent to which the changes have been successful in improving the performance of the business.

REQUIREMENT

The following performance objective has been suggested for Squarize:

Reduce the number of contracts cancelled due to the broadband service not working

To which perspective of the balanced scorecard does this objective belong?
