Both machinists and machine operators cost $20 per hour. The production run also consumes machine hours. The raw materials, labor, and machine hours used in the process are summarized in the following table:DynaGolf Machining Department Activities SummaryDrivers Wedges PuttersRaw materialsComponents required per unit 5 6 10Cost per component $4 $5 $1Total raw materials cost per unit $20 $30 $10Labor cost (at $20 per hour)Setup labor (per production run) 10 hrs 10 hrs 11 hrsRun labor (per club head) 1/2 hr 1/3 hr 1/4 hrMachine hours (per club head) 1/4 hr 1/3 hr 1/2 hrThe Machining department has a total budget of $700,000 in a typical month, which includes depreciation and maintenance on the machines and the cost of the electricity to run them.

Calculate the per-unit costs for each product using the current system.2. Calculate the per-unit costs for each product using Phil Meyers? proposed system.3. Calculate the per-unit costs for each product using activity-based costing.4. Using the results of your calculations, assume you are the consultant that Joe Bell should have hired instead of talking with his board member, Steve Barber. Prepare a brief report that provides a comprehensive analysis of the problems DynaGolf is facing here. Make recommendations that will justify your outrageous consulting fee. Specifically, recommend a cost system (with a very clear rationale for adopting it) and make good suggestions for operational improvements that should be obvious after you think about the case and construct the three cost systems above.
