Suppose sales in 2001 equal 26,000 units, as budgeted in January, and that actualmanufacturing expenses turn out to equal budgeted expenses. What should Daniel Yeltin do to“devise a better way to calculate product costs and gross margins for management decision-making purposes”? (Hint 1: What are the decisions facing management and the board? Hint 2:Consider the suggestion in Activity-Based Costing and Capacity to allocate costs based oncapacity, rather than based on production. What is current cartridge manufacturing capacityaccording to the information in Exhibit 8? What are the costs of providing that capacityaccording to Exhibit 7? What should Daniel Yeltin do with the cost of unused cartridgemanufacturing capacity?)5. Anagene expects demand for 95,000 cartridges in 2002. What changes can Anagene maketo increase capacity to meet higher demand? (See information in the comments column of Exhibit 8 about additional capacity that can be added to the various manufacturing steps.) Assume employees added to increase capacity at any of the various steps cost $100,000 per employee, and assume these costs are treated as part of the overhead cost pool. Under theseassumptions, how will the cost of adding capacity affect the overhead component of cartridgemanufacturing costs?
