Hi I am 2 weeks away from my exam budget and I going through question after question and one question I am stuck with
5630 units product are to be manufactured next week
Each unit takes 2.5 minutes produce
200 production labour hours are available
Any additional requirement must be sub-contracted
How do you work this out please
Thanks linda

    200 production labour hours are available
    each unit takes 2.5 minutes produce

    So we can make 24 units per hour. [60 minutes in an hour/2.5 minutes per unit]
    and 4800 units in 200 hours

    But we need 5630 units which is 830 more than we can make
    So must sub-contract the production of 830 units.

    I hope that helps
