Current Production rates and costs
When looking at last months stats, production with the profit of $10 per case was 9,000 cases. This is based on monthly costs to run the business. If we added 30% more which is about 3, 000 more cases there would be no impact. I would not recommend expanding the business unless we have a bigger market.
The internal cost which includes product vs. period costs, job order costing, process costing, allocation of manufacturing overhead, and costing of joint products.
The report is on what the company has already accounted for that specific period. The report is required for external organizations to evaluate the performance of the company.
Acme's management could lose $4,340 in the long run if the reject the order. And could potentially lose loyal customers. So, management should not reject the $9.50 per case because the total variable cost is $7.33.
Calculation (9.50-7.33)*2,000= $4,340
According to our calculations by increasing our production by 2,000 per month to accommodate the free pickle promo with Super Deals we will get a higher profit. Reducing our price would only result in about a loss of a penny per case. But with this promotion a new market could very well open up bringing more business to the company.
