The Fastline panel has the following data:
Fixed cost tooling: £2,000
Variable cost per unit: £18
The director of manufacturing requires you to produce an analysis for production volumes in the range of 100 to 1400 per month.
(a)Based on a selling price of £40, construct a break-even chart and use this to find the break-even volume.
(b)Investigate the effect of increasing the selling price to £45.
(c)It is decided to fix the production level at 1000 units a month with each unit selling for £45. A few weeks later Microtronics receives an enquiry from a new customer. This is a DIY store and it wants to place a trial order of 500 units but at the
non-negotiable price of £35 per unit. Should the company accept the order given that the average cost per unit based on a 1000 units a month run is £38?
People living nearby have specific concerns about two operations carried out at the factory:
■ Stamping, which is a noisy process
■ Plating, which uses cyanide and is therefore perceived as a deadly process by some residents.
The company has decided to make a presentation to the local residents association explaining how it complies with legislation and demonstrating its good ‘green credentials’, particularly in respect of discharging waste water from the onsite treatment plant into a nearby culvert which runs down to a river.
Make a list of generic constraints that impact on engineering businesses.
With respect to the two main concerns of residents (Stamping and Plating), identify the key pieces of legislation which could apply here.
