# Pcr June 06 - 1.2 Limiting Factor

I am hoping that somebody can help me on this one please -

Section 1.2, I have correctly calculated the shortfalls and the limiting factor. However, part b asks for the revised production budget. I have looked at the AAT answers and cannot understand where they have got the 1400/2000 and the 600/2000 for the Sigmas and Thetas.

I understand the 320 x part, as this is the labour shortfall.

Hopefully this makes sense to someone and they can help me ready for tomorrow.

Hi Bex,

I worked it out like this:

320 (Labour Hrs short)/Increased Demand(1400+600 = 2000) = 0.16 HRS

0.16hrs x 1400 = 224 hrs short x 7 (units that can be made in an hr) = 1568
0.16hrs x 600 = 96 hrs x 4 (units that can be made in an hr) = 384

Hope that helps and hasn't confused matters!

Hiya,

I knew leaving it for a few hours and taking a break was a good move.
