Case Study

The Dubbo Rubbo Liniment Company manufactures liniment. Three processes are involved.Process 1 in which all chemicals etc. are added incurs costs of $124 000 for an output of 17 600 kg. Of this, 1600 kg is a sludge which is generally sold to road builders. The remaining 16 000 kg receives further processing. Of this 16 000 kg, 9000 kg goes on to Process 2 to become 9000 kg of A-grade liniment for an extra cost of $72 000. The A-grade liniment sells for $28 per kg. The other 7000 kg goes to Process 3 to become 7000 kg of B-grade liniment for an extra cost of $48 000. B-grade sells at $24 per kg. Sludge sells at $3.50 per kg, but costs $1 per kg to package safely.
