The ‘Chumpy’ canned dog food factory maintains target safety stock of raw materials inventory and tin can inventory amounting to the equivalent of one (1) week of the current year’s budgeted unit production. Finished goods inventory levels are kept at the equivalent of two (2) weeks of the current year’s budgeted unit sales. At the end of the 2013 calendar year there were 2,020,500 completed units of Finished Goods in the warehouse. There was enough raw materials and tin can inventory on hand at December 31st to manufacture 1,013,000 units. The Chumpy dog food division does not utilise a Work in Process inventory account.
The Chumpy factory has been operating out of its site in Wodonga for nearly 40 years and has undergone several upgrades. The manufacturing facility is currently operating at approximately 85% of its total practical capacity of 62 million cans of dog food per annum.
(i) Using Excel develop a Sales, Production and Purchase budget as well as a budgeted Schedule of Cost of Goods Manufactured, Schedule of Cost of Goods Sold, and an Income Statement for each of the 5 years in the budget period (commencing 2014) (advice on the form of these budgets will be provided on the subject Interact site and is also available in the Appendix to Chapter 9 of the text book). This budget must also take into account the manufacturing facility practical capacity production constraint. Your spreadsheet must include a data section which enables inputs to be simply altered and ‘what if’ analysis to be undertaken. (Excel resources are provided on your Interact site to guide students on the use of the ‘IF’ formula which can be used for the budget production constraint).
Hint: All 5 years of each budget should be shown side by side (1 column per year) for ease of comparison by management. All of the budgets should be presented on one worksheet together, working down the page commencing with the Sales and then Production budgets.
You should be able to drag the formula across for the whole of the budget if the first years are properly constructed with a data input section and using absolute referencing. This makes the process much quicker and easier. An Excel help file has been placed on the Interact site to assist students.
(ii) The Neptune Australia Strategic Management Committee has before them two options for consideration. Option 1 is to leave the facility as it is and incur normal repair and maintenance costs which are already budgeted for in factory running costs. Option 2 is to undertake major capital works and upgrade the cooking ovens and production line technology which will increase practical production capacity by 25% in the 2016 year. The upgrade can be completed by the end of the 2015 calendar year. If the upgrade is undertaken it will cost the firm $600,000 in financing costs per annum commencing in the 2016 year.
Using the excel model developed in part (i) calculate the impact on sales and profit if the option of upgrading the manufacturing facility is exercised and the practical production capacity of the factory is increased by 25% (Submit results as a separate worksheet).
(iii) Given your findings from part (i) and (ii) write a report for the Strategic Management Committee of Neptune Australia recommending whether to take up the option to upgrade the production facility. In your report consider all of the strategic and financial implications to the firm of reaching its production constraint and any implications or opportunities arising from upgrading the facility and having extra productive capacity. Your grade will depend on the accuracy and depth of your analysis, and your capacity to identify strategic issues which management should consider when making their decision (approx. 300 words).
