Question 1) ABC Ltd. Produces room coolers. The company is considering whether it should continue to manufacture air circulating fans itself or purchase them from outside. Its annual requirement is 25000 units. An outsider vendor is prepared to supply fans for Rs 285 each. In addition, ABC Ltd will have to incur costs of Rs 1.50 per unit for freight and Rs 10,000 per year for quality inspection, storing etc of the product.

In the most recent year ABC Ltd. Produced 25000 fans at the following total cost :

Material Rs. 50,00,000
Labour Rs. 20,00,000
Supervision & other indirect labour Rs. 2,00,000
Power and Light Rs. 50,000
Depreciation Rs. 20,000
Factory Rent Rs. 5,000
Supplies Rs. 75,000

Power and light includes Rs 20,000 for general heating and lighting, which is an allocation based on the light points. Indirect labour is attributed mainly to the manufacturing of fans. About 75% of it can be dispensed with along with direct labour if manufacturing is discontinued. However, the supervisor who receives annual salary of Rs 75,000 will have to be retained. The machines used for manufacturing fans which have a book value of Rs 3,00,000 can be sold for Rs 1,25,000 and the amount realized can be invested at 15% return. Factory rent is allocated on the basis of area, and the company is not able to see an alternative use for the space which would be released. Should ABC Ltd. Manufacture the fans or buy them?
