Contribution margin per machine hour :

Product A | Product B | Product C | |

Selling price | 8 | 12 | 16 |

Variable cost | 5 | 10 | 13 |

Contribution margin per unit | 3 | 2 | 3 |

Machine hour per unit | 2 | 1 | 2 |

Contribution margin per machine hour | 1.50 | 2 | 1.50 |

Product B should be manufacturred :

total contribution margin if the hours are (1) divided equally amoung the products

Total COntribution margin = (1000*1.5+1000*2+1000*1.5) = 5000

(2) if they are allocated entirely to the product identified above = 3000*2 = 6000
