The company’s Accounting Department reportsthe following costs of producing the 16,700 units of the part that are needed every year.Per UnitAn outside supplier has offered to make the part and sell it to the company for $32.00 each. If this offer is accepted, the supervisor’s salary and all of the variable costs, including direct labor, can be avoided. The special equipment used to make the part was purchased many years ago and has no salvage value or other use. The allocated general overhead represents fixed costs of the entire company. If the outside supplier’s offer were accepted, only $22,700 of these allocated general overhead costs would be avoided. In addition, the space used to produce part G18 could be used to make more of one of the company’s other products, generating an additional segment margin of $29,000 per year for that product.Required:a. Calculate the effect on the company’s total net operating income of buying part G18 from the supplier rather than continuing to make it inside the company. (Input the amount as a positive value. Omit the “$” sign in your response.) Net operating income would be by $ .b. Which alternative should the company choose?Foulds Company makes 6,000 units per year of a part it uses in the products it manufactures. The unitproduct cost of this part is computed as follows:An outside supplier has offered to sell the company all of these parts it needs for $41.20 a unit. If thecompany accepts this offer, the facilities now being used to make the part could be used to make moreunits of a product that is in high demand. The additional contribution margin on this other product would be $43,200 per year.If the part were purchased from the outside supplier, all of the direct labor cost of the part would beavoided. However, $6.30 of the fixed manufacturing overhead cost being applied to the part wouldcontinue even if the part were purchased from the outside supplier. This fixed manufacturing overheadcost would be applied to the company’s remaining products.Required:a. How much of the unit product cost of $43.50 is relevant in the decision of whether to make or buy the part? (Round your answer to 2 decimal places. Omit the “$” sign in your response.)b. What is the net total dollar advantage (disadvantage) of purchasing the part rather than makingit? (Input the amount as a positive value. Omit the “$” sign in your response.)c. What is the maximum amount the

company should be willing to pay an outside supplier per unit forthe part if the supplier commits to supplying all 6,000 units required each year? (Round your answerto 2 decimal places. Omit the “$” sign in your response.)Holtrop Corporation has received a request for a special order of 9,500 units of product Z74 for $47.00each. The normal selling price of this product is $52.10 each, but the units would need to be modifiedslightly for the customer. The normal unit product cost of product Z74 is computed as follows:Direct labor is a variable cost. The special order would have no effect on the company’s total fixedmanufacturing overhead costs. The customer would like some modifications made to product Z74 thatwould increase the variable costs by $6.70 per unit and that would require a one-time investment of$46,500 in special molds that would have no salvage value. This special order would have no effect onthe company’s other sales. The company has ample spare capacity for producing the special order.Required:Calculate the incremental net operating income of accepting the special order.
