ACC - Differential Analysis for Machine Replacement Problem




Question;Differential Analysis for Machine ReplacementTaipei Digital Components Company assembles circuit boards by using a manually operated machine to insert electronic components. The original cost of the machine is $91,400, the accumulated depreciation is $36,600, its remaining useful life is five years, and its residual value is negligible. On September 27, 2014, a proposal was made to replace the present manufacturing procedure with a fully automatic machine that will cost $190,100. The automatic machine has an estimated useful life of five years and no significant residual value. For use in evaluating the proposal, the accountant accumulated the following annual data on present and proposed operations:Present Operations Proposed OperationsSales $289,700 $289,700Direct materials 98,700 98,700Direct labor 68,600 ?Power and maintenance 6,400 33,800Taxes, insurance, etc. 2,300 7,600Selling and administrative expenses 68,600 68,600Total expenses $244,600 $208,700Hide a. Prepare a differential analysis dated September 27, 2014, to determine whether to continue with the old machine (Alternative 1) or replace the old machine (Alternative 2). Prepare the analysis over the useful life of the new machine. If an amount is zero, enter zero "0".Differential AnalysisContinue with Old Machine (Alt. 1) or Replace Old Machine (Alt. 2)September 27, 2014Continue with Old Machine (Alternative 1)Replace Old Machine (Alternative 2)Differential Effect on Income (Alternative 2)Revenues:Sales (5 years)$$$Costs:Purchase priceDirect materials (5 years)Direct labor (5 years)Power and maintenance (5 years)Taxes, insurance, etc. (5 years)Selling and admin. expenses (5 years)Income (Loss)
