Question:1.Han Products manufactures 20,000 units of part S-6 each year for use on its production line. At this level of activity, the cost per unit for part S-6 is:

   Direct materials$3.40

Direct labor 8.00

Variable manufacturing overhead 2.60

Fixed manufacturing overhead 9.00

Total cost per part$23.00

An outside supplier has offered to sell 20,000 units of part S-6 each year to Han Products for $19 per part. If Han Products accepts this offer, the facilities now being used to manufacture part S-6 could be rented to another company at an annual rental of $70,000. However, Han Products has determined that two-thirds of the fixed manufacturing overhead being applied to part S-6 would continue even if part S-6 were purchased from the outside supplier.

 Total Hardware Linens

Sales $4,110,000 $3,090,000 $1,020,000

Net operating income (loss)$667,000 $882,000 $(215,000)

A study indicates that $375,000 of the fixed expenses being charged to Linens are sunk costs or allocated costs that will continue even if the Linens Department is dropped. In addition, the elimination of the Linens Department will result in a 20% decrease in the sales of the Hardware Department.

3.Imperial Jewelers manufactures and sells a gold bracelet for $406.00. The company’s accounting system says that the unit product cost for this bracelet is $266.00 as shown below:

    Direct materials$141

 Direct labor 85 

Manufacturing overhead 40 

Unit product cost$266 

The members of a wedding party have approached Imperial Jewelers about buying 16 of these gold bracelets for the discounted price of $366.00 each. The members of the wedding party would like special filigree applied to the bracelets that would require Imperial Jewelers to buy a special tool for $453 and that would increase the direct materials cost per bracelet by $6. The special tool would have no other use once the special order is completed.

To analyze this special order opportunity, Imperial Jewelers has determined that most of its manufacturing overhead is fixed and unaffected by variations in how much jewelry is produced in any given period. However, $7.00 of the overhead is variable with respect to the number of bracelets produced. The company also believes that accepting this order would have no effect on its ability to produce and sell jewelry to other customers. Furthermore, the company could fulfill the wedding party’s order using its existing manufacturing capacity.

Required:

1. What is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of accepting the special order from the wedding party?

What is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of accepting the special order from the wedding party?

Financial advantage_____?
