Cheryl Montoya picked up the phone and called her boss, Wes Chan, Vice President of Marketing at Piedmont Fasteners Corporation.
Cheryl: “Wes, I’m not sure how to go about answering the questions that came up at the meeting with the President yesterday.”
Wes: “What’s the problem?”.
Cheryl: “The president wanted to know the break-even point for each of the company’s products, but I am having trouble figuring them out.”
Wes: “I’m sure you can handle it, Cheryl. And, by the way, I need your analysis on my desk tomorrow morning at 8:00 sharp in time for the follow-up meeting at 9:00.”
Piedmont Fasteners Corporation makes three different clothing fasteners at its manufacturing facility in North Carolina. Data concerning these products appear below:
VelcroMetalNylonNormal annual sales volume100,000 units200,000 units400,000 unitsUnit selling price$1.65$1.50$0.85Variable cost per unit$1.25$0.70$0.25
Total fixed expenses are $400,000 per year.
All three products are sold in highly competitive markets, so the company is unable to raise its prices without losing unacceptably large numbers of customers.
The company has a very effective lean production system, so there is no beginning or ending work in process or finished-goods inventories.
