Make or Buy Decision Question Managerial Accounting
Ahron Company makes 8,000 units per year of a part it uses in the products it manufactures. The unit product cost of this part is computed as follows :
Direct Materials : $14.90
Direct Labor : $17.50
Variable Manufacturing Overhead : $1.90
Fixed Manufacturing Overhead : $21.10
Unit Product Cost : $55.40
An outside supplier has offered to sell the company all of the units it needs. If the company accepts this offer, the facilities now being used to make this part would be used to make more units of a product in high demand. The additional contribution margin on the other product would be $161,600 per year. If the part were purchased from the outside supplier, $7.50 of the fixed manufacturing overhead cost being applied to the part would be eliminated.
