For the Paper:
Quality Glass currently manufactures windshields for automobiles. Management is interested in outsourcing the production of these windshields to a reputable manufacturing company that can supply the windshields for $45 per unit. Quality Glass incurs the following annual production costs to produce 15,000 windshields internally.
Per Unit
Total Annual Cost at 15,000 Units
Variable production costs
$ 8
Direct materials
$ 10
$ 120,000
Direct labor
$ 11
Applied (and actual) factory overhead
Fixed production costs
Total production costs
$ 825,000
If production is outsourced, all variable production costs will be eliminated, and 80 percent of fixed production costs will be eliminated. Regardless of the decision to outsource or to produce internally, 20 percent of fixed production costs will remain.
a. Perform differential analysis using the format presented in Figure 7.2. Assume making windshields internally is Alternative 1, and buying windshields from an outside manufacturer is Alternative 2.
b. Which alternative is best? Explain.
c. Summarize the result of outsourcing production using the format presented in Figure 7.3.
Be sure to use in-text citation and provide references for your sources, including textbooks.
