In this paper, please discuss the following case study. In doing so, explain your approach to the problem, support your approach with references, and execute your approach. Provide an answer to the case study’s question with a recommendation.
Assume that a firm has prepared the following cost estimates for the manufacture of a subassembly component based on an annual production of 8,000 units.
Variable factory overhead applied
Fixed factory overhead applied (150% of direct labor cost)
The supplier has offered to provide the subassembly at a price of $16 each. Two-thirds of fixed factory overhead, which represents executive salaries, rent, depreciation, and taxes, continue regardless of the decision. Should the company buy or make the product?
