Pottery Ranch Inc. has been manufacturing its own finials for its curtain rods. The company is currently operating at 100% of capacity, and variable manufacturing overhead is charged to production at the rate of 61% of direct labor cost. The direct materials and direct labor cost per unit to make a pair of finials are $3.56 and $4.75, respectively. Normal production is 29,100 curtain rods per year. A supplier offers to make a pair of finials at a price of $13.46 per unit. If Pottery Ranch accepts the supplier’s offer, all variable manufacturing costs will be eliminated, but the $40,400 of fixed manufacturing overhead currently being charged to the finials will have to be absorbed by other products. (a) Prepare an incremental analysis to decide if Pottery Ranch should buy the finials.
As the Fixed Manufacturing costs are absorbed by the other products it is not required to take it into account while taking decision with respect to supplier offer
it is not suggested to accept the supplier offer as it results in high cost
