Candace Corporation has decided to introduce a new product that can be manufactured using
either a capital-intensive method or a labour-intensive method.
The predicted manufacturing costs for each method are as follows:
Direct materials per unit
Direct labour per unit
Variable manufacturing overhead per unit
Fixed manufacturing overhead per year
Candace’s market research department has recommended an introductory unit sales price of $30.
The incremental selling costs are predicted to be $500,000 per year plus $2 per unit sold.
1. Calculate the annual break-even point in units if Candace used the:
a. Capital-intensive manufacturing method
b. Labour-intensive manufacturing method
2. Determine the annual unit volume at which Candace would be indifferent between the
two manufacturing methods. (HINT: Candace would be indifferent between the two
methods at unit volume X where costs are equal. You need to solve for X.)
