Masse Corporation uses part G18 in one of its products. The company’s Accounting Department reports the following costs of producing the 17,200 units of the part that are needed every year.

Per Unit
Direct materials \$4.40
Direct labor \$5.10
Supervisor’s salary \$8.80
Depreciation of special equipment \$9.40
________________________________________

An outside supplier has offered to make the part and sell it to the company for \$31.00 each. If this offer is accepted, the supervisor’s salary and all of the variable costs, including direct labor, can be avoided. The special equipment used to make the part was purchased many years ago and has no salvage value or other use. The allocated general overhead represents fixed costs of the entire company. If the outside supplier’s offer were accepted, only \$23,200 of these allocated general overhead costs would be avoided. In addition, the space used to produce part G18 could be used to make more of one of the company’s other products, generating an additional segment margin of \$34,000 per year for that product.

Required:
a. Calculate the effect on the company’s total net operating income of buying part G18 from the supplier rather than continuing to make it inside the company. (Input the amount as a positive value. Omit the “\$” sign in your response.)

Net operating income would be   by \$  .

b. Which alternative should the company choose?

Holtrop Corporation has received a request for a special order of 8,800 units of product Z74 for \$45.70 each. The normal selling price of this product is \$50.80 each, but the units would need to be modified slightly for the customer. The normal unit product cost of product Z74 is computed as follows:

Direct materials \$16.50
Direct labor 5.80
________________________________________
Unit product cost \$31.20
________________________________________________________________________________
________________________________________

Direct labor is a variable cost. The special order would have no effect on the company’s total fixed manufacturing overhead costs. The customer would like some modifications made to product Z74 that would increase the variable costs by \$5.40 per unit and that would require a one-time investment of \$45,200 in special molds that would have no salvage value. This special order would have no effect on the company’s other sales. The company has ample spare capacity for producing the special order.

Required:
Calculate the incremental net operating income of accepting the special order. (Omit the “\$” sign in your response.)

Management of Modugno Corporation is considering whether to purchase a new model 370 machine costing \$441,000 or a new model 240 machine costing \$387,000 to replace a machine that was purchased 7 years ago for \$429,000. The old machine was used to make product M25A until it broke down last week. Unfortunately, the old machine cannot be repaired.

Management has decided to buy the new model 240 machine. It has less capacity than the new model 370 machine, but its capacity is sufficient to continue making product M25A.

Management also considered, but rejected, the alternative of simply dropping product M25A. If that were done, instead of investing \$387,000 in the new machine, the money could be invested in a project that would return a total of \$430,000.

In making the decision to buy the model 240 machine rather than the model 370 machine, the sunk cost was:
\$430,000
\$429,000
\$387,000
\$441,000
