You are the new CEO of Dualjet, a company that makes expensive premium kitchen stoves for home use. You must decide whether to assemble the stoves in-house or to have a Mexican company do it. The fixed and variable costs for each option are as follows:

a. Suppose DualJet’s premium stoves sell for $2,500.
What is the break-even volume point for assembling the stoves in-house?
b. At what volume level do the two capacity options have identical costs?
c. Suppose the expected demand for stoves is 3,000.
Which capacity option would you prefer, from a cost perspective?
