Variable costs and activity bases in decision making The owner of Dawg Prints, a printing company, is planning direct labor needs for the upcoming year. The owner has provided you with the following information for next year's plans: Each color on the banner must be printed one at a time. Thus, for example, a four-color banner will need to be run through the printing operation four separate times. The total production volume last year was 600 banners, as shown below. The four-color banner is a new product offering for the upcoming year. The owner believes that the expected 600-unit increase in volume from last year means that direct labor expenses should increase by 100% (600 + 600). What do you think?
