Incremental cash flows, Financial Accounting

You are an analyst in the corporate finance department of Pet Products, Inc. You have been asked to analyze a potential new product to be introduced. The beef-flavored water will be called "Meaty Drink." The beef flavouring will be artificial, of course, so as to not close the market to vegan pets. The entire project can be squeezed into a small portion of a warehouse already in use without detrimentally affecting other projects.

Your colleague in the research and development department sent along the following partial spreadsheet of project cash flows and levels to get you started in your analysis. Although you assume the numbers are accurate (at least, accurate conditionally based on your colleague's data and analysis) you suspect that you will have to make major adjustments the spreadsheet so that you can analyze a proper set of relevant incremental cash flows.
