Every year Blue Industries manufactures 7,300 units of part 231 for use in its production cycle. The per unit costs of part 231 are as follows:

 Direct materials \$ 3 Direct labor 11 Variable manufacturing overhead 8 Fixed manufacturing overhead 10 Total \$32

Flintrock, Inc., has offered to sell 7,300 units of part 231 to Blue for \$33 per unit. If Blue accepts Flintrock’s offer, its freed-up facilities could be used to earn \$10,700 in contribution margin by manufacturing part 240. In addition, Blue would eliminate 50% of the fixed overhead applied to part 231.

(a) Calculate total relevant cost to make and net cost to buy.

 Total relevant cost to make \$ Net relevant cost to buy \$

Step 1

Relevant costs: These are the costs a business computes to decide whether to continue or close a unit. If the costs that can be eliminated due to closure, exceed the income lost from the closure of the unit, the unit could be closed.

Step 2

a.

Compute total relevant cost to make.

Step 3

Compute net relevant...
