Hey! I'm Carter, I'd be glad to help you out with this.

Product A =$450/1.5 =$300

Product B =$500/2=$250

Product C =$250/1.25=$200

Product A has the greatest CM per hour

Product A-320 (weekly demand) x 1.5 hrs (machine hours per unit) =480 hrs of machine time needed to produce at this level demand

Product B-300(weekly demand) x 2hrs (machine hours per unit) =600 hrs

Product C - 500 (weekly demand) x 1.25hrs (machine hours per unit) = 625 hrs

Total Machine Hours available 1,000

Highest Product CM/per machine hour -480 (Product A)

Machine hours available to use 520

Next highest product - 520 (Product B)

Allocate 480 hours to Product A, then the rest to Product B even though the demand will not be met for product B since it has the next highest contribution margin per machine hour.

Hope that helps. Please leave a rating. Thanks!

are you sure that this answer of the question that I post??? is it 100% correct??
Business Tutor: Carter McBride, CPA replied 7 months ago

Sorry about that. It's:

Product A =$300/3 =$100

Product B =$400/2=$200

Product C =$150/.5=$300

Product C has the greatest CM per hour.

Product A: 100 * 3= 300 hours of machine time

Product B: 300 * 2 = 600 hours of machine time

Product C: 800 * .5 = 400 hours of machine time.

Total Hours Available - 1,000

Highest Product CM/machine hour - 400 (Product C)

Machine hours left - 600

Next Highest CM - 600 hours Product B.

So, you would produce 600 hours of Product C and 400 hours of Product B.
