Let X3R = yards of fabric 3 on regular looms
X4R = yards of fabric 4 on regular looms
X5R = yards of fabric 5 on regular looms
X1D = yards of fabric 1 on dobbie looms
X2D = yards of fabric 2 on dobbie looms
X3D = yards of fabric 3 on dobbie looms
X4D = yards of fabric 4 on dobbie looms
X5D = yards of fabric 5 on dobbie looms
Y1 = yards of fabric 1 purchased
Y2 = yards of fabric 2 purchased
Y3 = yards of fabric 3 purchased
Y4 = yards of fabric 4 purchased
Y5 = yards of fabric 5 purchased
Profit Contribution per Yard:
Fabric = Manufactured (Variable cost –Selling Price)
Purchased = (Selling Price – Purchase Price)
Fabric Manufactured Purchased
1 0.99-0.66=0.33 0.99-0.80=0.19
2 0.86-0.55=0.31 0.86-0.70=0.16
3 1.10-0.49=0.61 1.10-0.60=0.50
4 1.24-0.51=0.73 1.24-0.70=0.54
5 0.70-.50=0.20 0.70-.70=0
Production Times in Hours per Yard:
Fabric Regular Dobbie1 1 / 4.63 = 0.21598
2 1 / 4.63 = 0.21598
3 1 / 5.23 = 0.1912 1 / 5.23 = 0.1912
4 1 / 5.23 = 0.1912 1 / 5.23 = 0.1912
5 1 / 4.17 = 0.2398 1 / 4.17 = 0.2398
