An order consists of anywhere from 50,000 to 500,000 units. 80 orders were received during the year 2008 for individual custom production runs. The total number of units produced was 8 million.

The only costs associated with Erone are additional processing costs of $2 for each unit. Rhone accounts for Erone's sales first by deducting its separable costs from its sales and then by deducting this net amount from the cost of goods sold of Sharone. This year, 4,800 units of Erone were produced. They were all sold for $10 each. Company operating expenses were $120,000 for the year. Sales revenue and cost of goods sold for Sharone were $800,000 and $400,000, respectively, for the year.

Final sales values are $400,000, $600,000 and $50,000 for A, B and C respectively. However, these prices are subject to erratic change. The additional processing costs for A, B and C are $100,000, $150,000 and $0 respectively. Stanford produces 120,000 units of A, 120,000 units of B and 60,000 units of C.
