A new intern thinks that the profit for Deluxe Boxes are higher than those calculated using the lump sum method (as in Tab1). The intern suggests calculating the profits using an allocation method for fixed costs based on sales volume( the number of boxes sold) to split the Fixed Costs between the Standard and Deluxe Boxes. Required: (Complete the grey spaces): 1) First calculate the percenatge portion each product has of the total sales voume 1) How much fixed costs are allocated to each product based on the sales volume method suggested by the intern? 2) Also calculate the new operating profit percentage (based on sales) for each product. | |||

LGI's production managers think that the profit on Deluxe Boxes are much lower than the Intern suggested after recently attending a course at UMGC where they learned about ABC costing. They propose allocating the total fixed costs between Standard and Deluxe boxes based on the ABC method . They collected information about the cost drivers and the break up of the total fixed costs in | Table 1 | |||||||||

The sustainability manager is concerned about the long term sustainability implications of Deluxe Boxes on the environment and suggests changing to sustainable materials for the production of a Sustainable Deluxe Box. If the company switches the current quantity of Deluxe Boxes sold, to Sustainable Deluxe Boxes, there will be some cost implications. 1) The | Sustainable Deluxe Boxes | |

The CEO is not convinced and still thinks that no form of a Deluxe Box, sustainable or not should be produced. The CEO indicates that consideration of the production of a Sustainable Deluxe Boxes will only be considered if it can achieve at least the same operating profit percentage for the Sustainable Deluxe Boxes as the operating profit percenatge indicated under the ABC costing method for Standard Boxes (See Tab 3) . Required (Complete the grey spaces). 1) How much additional operating profit (in percentage) will be required from the Sustainable Deluxe Boxes to meet the same percentage as the Standard Boxes are generating, given the percentage that can currently be achieved on Sustainable Deluxe Boxes | ||
