Stillwater Designs produces two automotive subwoofers: S12L7 and S12L5. Projected sales (number of speakers) for the coming five quarters are as follows:

The vice president of sales believes that the projected sales are realistic and can be achieved by the company.

Stillwater Designs needs a production budget for each product (representing the amount that must be outsourced to manufacturers located in Asia). Beginning inventory of S12L7 for the first quarter of 2012 was 340 boxes. The company’s policy is to have 20 percent of the next quarter’s sales of S12L7 in ending inventory. Beginning inventory of S12L5 was 170 boxes. The company’s policy is to have 30 percent of the next quarter’s sales of S12L5 in ending inventory.

Prepare a production budget for S12L7 for each quarter for 2012 and for the year in total.

Exercise 9-36 (Algorithmic)
Production Budget and Direct Materials Purchases Budgets

Smee Inc. produces all-natural organic peanut butter. The peanut butter is sold in 12-ounce jars. The sales budget for the first four months of the year is as follows:

 Unit Sales Dollar Sales (\$) January 60,000 \$114,000 February 70,000 133,000 March 80,000 152,000 April 50,000 95,000

Company policy requires that ending inventories for each month be 10 percent of next month’s sales. At the beginning of January, the inventory of peanut butter is 35,000 jars.

Each jar of peanut butter needs two raw materials: 24 ounces of peanuts and one jar. Company policy requires that ending inventories of raw materials for each month be 20 percent of the next month’s production needs. That policy was met on January 1.

1.  Prepare a production budget for the first quarter of the year. Show the number of jars that should be produced each month as well as for the quarter in total.

Exercise 9-38
Direct Materials Purchases Budget

You may use the attached spreadsheet to help you complete this activity, but you are not required to do so. You will find the spreadsheet by clicking on the link in the drop-down menu above.

Fang Company produces decorative plastic items, including hollow plastic pumpkins often used by trick-or-treaters for Halloween. Each pumpkin requires about 5 ounces of plastic costing \$0.08 per ounce. Fang molds the plastic into a pumpkin shape and applies decoration to the outside of each pumpkin. Fang has budgeted production of the pumpkins for the next four months as follows:

Inventory policy requires that sufficient plastic be in ending monthly inventory to satisfy 20 percent of the following month’s production needs. The inventory of plastic at the beginning of July equals exactly the amount needed to satisfy the inventory policy.

Prepare a direct materials purchases budget for July, August, and September, showing purchases in units and in dollars for each month and in total.
