Question 1

LMN Ltd manufactures three products, L, M and N. The company that supplies the two raw materials that are used in all three products has informed LMN that their employees are refusing to work over-time. This means that supply of the materials is limited to the following quantities for the next period:

Material A 1,030 kg

Material B 1,220 kg

No other source of supply can be found for the next period.

Information relating to the three products manufactured by LMN Ltd is as follows:


Quantity of material used per unit manufactured

Material A (kg) 2 1 4

Material B (kg) 5 3 7

Maximum sales demand (units) 120 160 110

Contribution per unit sold $15 $12 $17.50

Owing to the perishable nature of the products, no finished goods inventory is held.


(a) Recommend a production mix that will maximise the profits of LMN Ltd for the forthcoming period.

(b) LMN Ltd has a valued customer to whom they wish to guarantee the supply of 50 units of each product next period. Would this alter your recommended production plan?

Question 2

1. One of the products manufactured by the company passes through two separate processes. In each process losses, arising from rejected material, occur. In Process 1, normal losses are 20 per cent of input. In Process 2, normal losses are 10 per cent of input. The losses arise at the end of each of the processes. Reject material can be sold. Process 1 reject material can be sold for $1.20 per kilo and Process 2 reject material for $1.42 per kilo.

Information for a period is as follows:

Process 1:

Material input 9000 kilos, cost $14 964

Direct labour $12 250

Production overhead $ 2 450

Material output 7300 kilos

Process 2:

Material input 7300 kilos

Direct labour $5000

Production overhead $1300

Material output 4700 kilos

At the end of the period 2000 kilos of material were incomplete in Process 2. These were 50 per cent complete as regards direct labour and production overhead. There was no opening work in progress in either process, and no closing work in progress in Process 1.


Prepare the relevant cost accounts for the period. (25 marks)

Question 3

Prepare a report for the managing director of your company explaining how costs may be classified by their behaviour, with particular reference to the effects both on total and on unit costs. Your report should:

(i) say why it is necessary to classify costs by their behaviour; and

(ii) be illustrated by sketch graphs within the body of the report. (25 marks)
