Lin is owner of a business producing and selling three products: X, Y and Z. Her business generates NOK 3 billion in annual sales. Lin is considering an investment of NOK 45 million in a manufacturing plant that will produce all three products. The plant has a life of 15 years after which it would have no 2

3 residual value. Lin uses straight-line depreciation method. Cost of production on the three products is given below: X Y Z Per unit Direct materials Direct labor Variable manufacturing overheads Moreover, following are the estimated price and sales dat X Y Z Price (NOK/unit) Annual sales (units) 487, , ,000 Lin gets an annual salary of NOK 2 million, and incurs an annual marketing and administrative expenses of NOK 300,000.

Please help Lin to evaluate this make or buy decision. She also needs your advice on strategic considerations of this outsourcing offer. Question 2 ( ) A preliminary analysis of a grocery company shows that the packaged food department is the most profitable. Consequently, the company is considering to increase its space the most. Assume that the company has only three departments: produce, packaged food and meat. The most recent annual report shows sales of NOK 3,283,200, which generated a gross margin of NOK 883,200.

Currently, the company uses cost of products sold as a costallocation base for allocating support costs. After attending a seminar on activity-based costing, the CEO of the company suggests that the company should undertake further analysis before deciding which product gets the largest increase in space. He has asked you to lead this analysis. Specifically, he asks you to: 3

4 i. Compute the operating income and the operating income as a percent of sales for each department using the existing system. Use this information to assess the relative profitability per NOK of sales of each of the three departments. ii. Develop product costs using an activity-based accounting system. You determine that there are five major activities, each with a different cost driver to be used as a cost-allocation base: Ordering Placing of orders for purchases b. Delivery Physical delivery and receipt of merchandise c. Shelf-stocking Stocking of merchandise on store shelves, including ongoing restocking d. Customer support Assistance to customers, including check out and bagging e. Produce monitoring Constantly checking on the stacking and freshness of produce. The cost drivers for each activity are as follows: Ordering Delivery Shelf-stocking Customer support Produce monitoring Number of purchase orders Number of deliveries Hours of stocking time Number of items sold Direct trace to Produce Department You have determined the following information about the cost drivers: Produce Packaged food Meat Total Number of purchase orders 1,440 3,360 1,440 6,240 Number of deliveries 1,200 8,760 2,640 12,600 Hours of stocking time 216 2,160 1,080 3,456 Items sold 50, , , ,400 The total cost of each activity was as follows: Activity Cost (NOK) Ordering 124,800 Delivery 201,600 Shelf-stocking 138,240 Customer support 245,760 Produce monitoring 9,600 Total 720,000 Using these data and activity-based costing, calculate the operating income and operating income as a per cent of sales for each product. iii. Propose a strategy for this decision. Which information, that based on the current costing system or that based on the activity-based costing system, is most useful? Why? What additional information would you like to have before making a more definitive recommendation on the strategy? 4

5 b. Please differentiate between static and flexible budgets. c. What is the impact of under-recovery and over-recovery of overheads on current period income statement and balance sheet?
