Stanmore produces no defective machines, but it wants to reduce direct materials usage per D4H machine in 2011. Conversion costs in each year depend on production capacity defined in terms of D4H units that can be produced, not the actual units produced. Selling and customer service costs depend on the number of customers that Stanmore can support, not the actual number of customers it serves. Stanmore has 75 customers in 2010 and 80 customers in 2011.
Calculate the operating income of Stanmore Corporation in 2010 and 2011.
The operating income is calculated in the income statement of a company, and it represents the gross income minus operating expenses. It, therefore, excludes any non-operating revenues and expenses like interest received or paid or gains or losses on the sale of assets.
