*hours per thousand bottles= setup time/ median order size; total time per thousand= hours per thousand bottles + run time per thousand; operating cost per thousand= total time per thousand * variable cost per machine-hour; direct cost to manufacture= cost per thousand passes+ operating cost per thousand; total direct cost per thousand= shipping + scrap + direct cost to manufacture As shown in the Table 1, it is a part of question1. In the textbook, it has illustrated the 10 month income statement, containing variable cost per machine per hour and cost per thousand passes, which are used for the calculations. For the question 1, it requires to compute two order quantity ranges- 5000- 9999 and 100000- 249999, using the median of the order sizes for simplification. Setup time for a job is a factor of variable cost, so in the table, it has setup time, and uses it to get hours per thousand bottles. The formula is demonstrated below the Table 1. The setup time and run time per thousand adding together can get the total time of working per thousand, which means that when the company operates machines, it will spend cost, and should be included in variable. As a result, total time increases variable cost per machine per hour. Another thing should be mentioned here is the automatic and semiautomatic machine. The question demands automatic feature, but Lipman Company only has eight semiautomatic machines; the run time is 1.0 hour per bottle of one-separation job and size 0-1 ounce. The run time is different for different sizes. Moreover, one-separation and two-separation jobs are also different. The scrap and shipping to New York- New Jersey Area are decided by diverse sizes. In addition, cost per thousand passes, scrap, and shipping are all parts of variable cost. So, variable cost comprehends operating cost per thousand, cost per thousand passes, scrap, and shipping. All the answers of question 1...

LipmanBottleCompany
The LipmanBottleCompany case (Harvard Business School
181-076) illustrates the use of full cost information to set printing
prices. The company is a distributor which also prints labels on
bottles.
The case provides a 10-month income statement, showing
variable cost per machine hour and per 1,000 passes (or separations),
and fixed cost. A schedule showing shipping and scrap costs is given.
Difficult to understand information is provided about printing
operating time and how setup time and cost might be figured.
Students are instructed to calculate variable cost per 1,000
bottles, and a suggested price list, with a 30% margin on sales, for
printing of 24 alternatives of bottle sizes, order sizes, and one- and
two-separation combinations for Albany and for New York-New
Jersey. Students are told to calculate the costs and suggested prices
for a specified alternative by hand. Next, they are to bring up the
Lotus or Excel model which contains the solution. A highly
condensed version of the model is shown below.
Instructions:
1. Input data in column D of the Variables section of the
model, etc.
Constants that do not change:

...Paradox Glass & BottleCompany employs more than 600 people at its regional manufacturing plant. The company is structured functionally, with manufacturing, design and engineering, finance, marketing, and human resources (HR) departments. Paradox’s HR department is staffed by eight employees working in the areas of recruitment and development, payroll and condition, and industrial relations. The HR manager takes direct responsibility for industrial relations and two senior HR officers coordinate the activities of the other area. Nick Maddern is Paradox’s HR manager. He has only been at Paradox for three months, having moved from interstate where he had been HR manager at a large financial services company for a number of years. Accepting paradox’s job offer and moving interstate had been a difficult decision for Nick and his wife. They had both lived in the same city all their lives, but they felt that moving to a regional area would offer them a better lifestyle. He and his wife had agreed that they would not move unless both of them were happy to do so, and they had discussed at length the issues for and against moving. On the other hand, the Senior HR Officer (Recruitment and development), Tim Wylie, and Senior HR Officer (Payroll and Conditions), Karen Smythe, are both locals who have worked at paradox since leaving school.

Investigating Bottling Company Case Study
The case study that is being investigated is for a bottling company producing less soda than what is advertised. Customers have complained that the sodas in the bottles contain less than the advertised sixteen ounces. The employees at the company have measured the amount of soda contained in each bottle. There are thirty bottles that have been pulled from the shelves. The manager of the company would like to have a detailed report on the possible causes, if any, for the shortage in the amount of soda or if the claim is not supported explain how to mitigate the issue in the future. In order to statistically find a cause in the shortage a hypothesis testing is conducted by finding the mean, median, and standard deviation for ounces in the bottles. Constructing a 95 percent interval will establish the mean of the population since the mean of the population is not known.
There are thirty soda bottles being pulled for investigation. The mean will be calculated by averaging the amount of ounces in each bottle and dividing the total by the number of bottles. The data below shows the ounces in each of the thirty bottles...

BottleCompany Case Study
Recently customers have complained that our soda bottles have not contained the 16 ounces of soda, which we advertise. To figure out the problem bottles were pulled randomly off of 30 machines. Our calculations concluded that there was a total of 446.1 ounces of soda measured from 30 bottles with an average (Mean) of 14.87 ounces of soda per bottle, with a mode of 14.8. The calculated standard deviation is 0.550329
Now we have to construct a 95% confidence interval for the average amount of 16 ounce bottles produced by the company. C= 95%, and a = 0.05, n= 30 for sample size. Using the calculator when came of the values +1.96 and -1.96. To come up with me margin of error, we multiply 1.96 by the standard deviation and divide by the square root of the sample size (30), which is 5.4772. The margin of error is then added and subtracted from the mean to give two numbers, the upper and lower. The values of upper and lower are 15.07 upper (rounded) and 14.67 lower. This means that we have a 95% confidence level that the sampling will be between 15.07 and 14.67.
We are going to have to run two hypothesis tests, a null and an alternate. The null hypothesis is symbolized by H0. The alternate is symbolized...

Case 17-1: Delaney Motors
Understanding of the case
In order for Frank Delaney, owner and operator of Delaney Motors, to accurately determine the profitability of the body shop’s operations, an accurate assessment of his sales and costs has to be done.
As it stands, Delaney’s current system of determining semi variable and fixed costs can still be improved to better depict both the body shop’s own costs as well as its share in the entire company’s costs. Hiring a consultant to study how this may be done is a step in the right direction.
Among the consultant’s adjustments that I agree with include the inclusion of a properly allocated fraction of the cost of the owner’s salary to the body shop’s cost. I also agree with the consultant’s suggestion that a similarly recomputed fraction of the cost of the company’s legal and auditing services be taken into consideration as well in computing the body shop’s total costs.
Meanwhile, the re-allocation of the body shop’s fixed costs as a percentage of the body shop’s current fixed costs to the company’s entire fixed costs is also a sound recommendation.
Questions for the case
1. Why should the cost for “telephone and telegraph” for the body shop be recomputed based on the entire company’s telephone and telegraph costs if the exact cost of the body shop’s cost for the item can be determined anyway ($839)?
2. How was the 20% (as seen in Line 19) derived?
3. Is it correct to use the employee percentage...
