## Question:

Refer to Exercise 12-22.
1. Calculate the amount and cost of (a) unused manufacturing capacity and (b) unused selling and customer-service capacity at the beginning of 2013 based on actual production and actual number of customers served in 2013.
2. Suppose Stanmore can add or reduce its manufacturing capacity in increments of 30 units. What is the maximum amount of costs that Stanmore could save in 2013 by downsizing manufacturing capacity?
3. Stanmore, in fact, does not eliminate any of its unused manufacturing capacity. Why might Stanmore not downsize?

Data From Exercise 12-22:
Stanmore Corporation makes a special-purpose machine, D4H, used in the textile industry. Stanmore has designed the D4H machine for 2013 to be distinct from its competitors. It has been generally regarded as a superior machine. Stanmore presents the following data for 2012 and 2013.

Stanmore produces no defective machines, but it wants to reduce direct materials usage per D4H machine in 2013. Conversion costs in each year depend on production capacity defined in terms of D4H units that can be produced, not the actual units produced. Selling and customer-service costs depend on the number of customers that Stanmore can support, not the actual number of customers it serves. Stanmore has 75 customers in 2012 and 80 customers in 2013.
