direct materials $ 4
direct labor 16
variable manufacturing overhead 10
average fixed manufacturing overhead 10

problem 3: outsourcing

the wire company manufactures 10,000 rolls of cable each period. the cable is used as an input for producing several other products that wire manufactures. the full manufacturing costs for a batch of 100 rolls of cable are:

direct materials $170
direct labor 100
variable manufacturing overhead 100
average fixed manufacturing overhead 150
total $520

the fixed manufacturing overhead is comprised of depreciation expenses related to prior investments in facilities and equipment that are used in the manufacturing of the cable. these assets have no other use than for the manufacturing of the cable. an outside supplier has offered to sell wire the 10,000 rolls of cable necessary to meet production needs this period for a lump-sum of $40,000. if wire accepts this outside supplier’s offer, how much better or worse off will the company be?

problem 4: joint costs

the kristen company uses a joint process to produce products a, b, c, and d. each product may be sold at its split-off point or processed further. joint processing costs for a single batch of joint products are $60,000. other relevant data are as follows:

product sales value
at split-off additional costs
of processing sales value
of final product
a $15,000 $18,000 $ 40,000
b 27,000 15,000 40,000
c 20,000 25,000 40,000
d 13,000 11,000 25,000
$75,000 $69,000 $145,000

calculate the effect on profits of processing product a further beyond the split-off point.
