The Red Phaser division of Sulu Enterprises expects to report a pretty good year to headquarters and to shareholders.

The Red Phaser division of Sulu Enterprises expects to report a pretty good year to headquarters and to shareholders.

The Red Phaser division of Sulu Enterprises expects to report a pretty good year to headquarters and to shareholders.

The Red Phaser division of Sulu Enterprises expects to report a pretty good year to headquarters and to shareholders. They expect to produce and sell 40,000 phasers throughout the galaxy this year. While the machinery currently used in the production process is fairly old, it is not very expensive to operate. It has a current book value of $250,000, one remaining year of useful life, and no expected salvage value at the end of the year. However, the machine could be sold for $100,000 now.

Because the machinery is not state-of-the-art, the production process is fairly labor intensive. As a result, the company’s labor costs are high. In addition, the current production process also consumes a lot of variable overhead.

Another factor that is expected to contribute to this year’s success is the foresight (or luck) of Red Phaser’s purchasing manager, Mr. Rickey. Mr. Rickey purchased 40,000 pounds of Alpha, the raw material that the current machinery uses to produce phasers, at the end of last year for $10 per pound. This was quite fortunate, since the price of Alpha has subsequently skyrocketed, and now costs $20 per pound. Under current operating conditions, the 40,000 pounds of Alpha on hand is enough to satisfy this year’s production of 40,000 units of output (each unit of output requires 1 pound of raw material Alpha on the currently used machine). Another factor that is expected to add to this year’s success is a current change in the policy of the federation of republics in the galaxy. The new policy has banished taxes on income.

Using the current machine, the company therefore expects the costs that will appear in their operating income for the coming year to be

Direct Materials 1 lb.of Alpha @ $10 per lb $10.00

Direct Labor 1.6 hrs @ $12.50 per hr 20.00

Variable Overhead @ $8 per unit 8.00

Fixed Overhead $250,000/40,000 units 6.25

Total Cost Per Unit $44.25

The manager of the Red Phaser division is considering replacing the old machine with a new one. The new machine offers the flexibility of being capable of processing either Raw Material Alpha or a newly developed synthetic raw material Beta. However, the new machine does not work very efficiently with raw material Alpha. Half of the Alpha gets wasted in the process, which means that 2 lbs. of raw material Alpha are necessary to produce a unit of output with the new machine. The new machine is very efficient at using the new synthetic — it requires 1 pound of the synthetic material Beta to produce a unit of output. Neither the choice of the machine nor the choice of the raw material is expected to have any perceptible effect on the quality of the finished product. Production and sales volumes are expected to be 40,000 units regardless of which machine is used.

The new machine would be rented for $300,000. While it is expensive, the new machine is also more sophisticated than the old machine. As a result, the labor time would be cut by 25 percent. Dr. Scotty, the production engineer of Red Phaser, favors replacing the old machine. He argues that if the new machine is obtained, raw material Beta should be used because it is less expensive than either the old Material Alpha or any new Alpha that might have to be purchased. That is, he calculates that it will cost $12 for materials to make a unit of output using raw material Beta (i.e., 1 lb. of Beta @ $12/lb.), versus $20 for using the old Alpha (2 lbs. @ $10/lb.) or $40 for using any newly purchased Alpha (2 lbs. @ $20/lb.). Mr. Rickey informed Dr. Scotty that, if not used, the existing stock of Alpha can be sold in the market, at a price of $12 per pound.

To support his argument for acquiring the new machine, Dr. Scotty provides the following calculation of Red Phaser’s expected operating costs with the new machine.

Direct Materials 1 lb. of Beta @ 12 per lb. $12.00

Direct Labor 1.2 hours @ $12.50 per hour 15.00

Variable Overhead @ 40 percent of Direct Labor 6.00

Fixed Overhead $300,000/40,000 units 7.50

Total Cost per unit $40.50

Required:

  1. What should Red Phaser do? Support your answer with relevant cash flows and a discussion of all relevant factors.
  2. Ignore your answer to part (1). The comparison in the statement of the problem implicitly assumes that direct labors costs change depending on which machine is used. That is, the new machine will decrease labor costs by 25 percent. According to the galactic labor laws, the company must pay 75% of wages to any displaced workers for one year. However, the displaced workers can be redeployed for some other less productive activities without having to pay full 100% of wages. How does this change your analysis, if company has no other activities to engage the displaced workers? Or, have some less productive activities to use the displaced workers? Will this labor law work in the direction of favoring replacing the old machine or keeping it? Support your answer with relevant cash flows and a discussion of all relevant factors.
  3. Suppose in addition to information in question 2, the sales volume for Red Phaser is expected to be considerably higher than 40,000, will this work in the direction of favoring replacing or keeping the old machine?

The Isle of Harris lies to the north-west of the Scottish mainland and is part of the Outer Hebrides. It is an island, along withthe attached Isle of Lewis, of significant natural and archaeological interest and beauty. It is also of considerable geological interest because of, unlike the other islands that form the Inner and Outer Hebrides, it was not once part of the Scottish mainland. It ‘drifted’ to its current position over millennia, as a result of the movement of tectonic plates. The only other areas of the world displaying similar rock formation and composition are to be found in New Zealand and South Africa.

 

The Scottish Parliament recently announced that it had turned down an application to allow mining of a mountain area on the Isle of Harris. The economic, social and political dimensions to the case were considerable and it is unlikely that the recent decision by the Scottish Parliament is the last unfolding drama.

 

The mountain in question lies in the south-east corner of the island and is composed of rock that is both extremely hard (wearing) and has luminous qualities, ideal qualities of aggregates to be used in the construction of roads and motorways. With the mining completed the mountain would have effectively been removed, leaving an enormous cavity in the ground. The hole would cover a very wide area and the belief/fear was/is that it would then be a convenient site for the dumping of much of Scotland’s ‘undesirable’ waste, which could include toxic waste.

 

An environmental activist visited the island in 2020 for a holiday and was impressed with the level of opposition to the proposal by Islanders in the north of the island, particularly those who were relatively recent inhabitants of the island. Their opposition was based upon environmental and, and to a lesser extent, economic considerations. The latter reflected concerns over the impact upon tourism of the massive quarrying and then dumping operations. However, when he visited the south of the island the reaction of the locals was far more mixed, with possibly a majority of those he met (in a very unscientific study!) in favour of the proposal. Their reasoning? It reflected the locals’ concern over the significant haemorrhaging of young islanders to the mainland in search of work (although there was a strong argument that the jobs issue could be handled by other approaches). The islands were becoming the repositories of elderly (usually English) people, seeking peaceful retirements and those seeking an alternative lifestyle to the pressures and demands of modern life. In the words of those who supported the proposal, the island was dying as its young people continued to migrate to the mainland.

1. Where does the balance of the consequentialist lie?

 

2. Is it simply a case of counting of people to be affected, both negatively and positively, by the decision, and opting for the decision that affects the larger number of people positively?

 

3. Or should the decision be based upon the option that affects the smaller number of people negatively?

 

4. How much attention and weight should be given to the financial implications of the decision?

 

5. How does one take into account those people who live elsewhere in Scotland or other parts of United Kingdom, who might be affected by a landfill site being located near their homes if the planning application for the Isle of Harris site is refused?

 

6. Within a utilitarian stance should the views of the indigenous islanders be weighed more significantly than those of the ‘newcomers’?
