Question

Hoffman Manufacturing produces self- watering planters for use in upscale retail estab-lishments. Sales projections for the first five months of the upcoming year show the esti-mated unit sales of the planters each month to be as follows:
Number of planters to be sold
January............................................................................... 3,000
February............................................................................. 3,200
March................................................................................. 3,100
April.................................................................................... 4,200
May..................................................................................... 4,000

Inventory at the start of the year was 750 planters. The desired inventory of planters at the end of each month in the upcoming year should be equal to 25% of the following month’s budgeted sales. Each planter requires two pounds of polypropylene (a type of plastic). The company wants to have 20% of the polypropylene required for next month’s production on hand at the end of each month. The polypropylene costs $ 0.20 per pound.

Requirements
1. Prepare a production budget for each month in the first quarter of the year, including production in units for each month and for the quarter.
2. Prepare a direct materials budget for the polypropylene for each month in the first quarter of the year, including the pounds of polypropylene required and the total cost of the polypropylene to be purchased.
