Delasol Supply Company Case Summary

Good Essays
DelaSol Supply Company’s budgets are all based on one product, SolGlass transition glasses, and the fact that we are a start-up company. All of the budgets located on our excel sheet are based on second quarter sales (April -June). To begin with, our sales budget began with an estimated demand of 163,188, and 220 for the months of April, May, and June, which lead us to calculate the budgeted sales revenue for each of those months. The budgeted sales price and units sold all come from HOA #1 where our estimated units sold per month and selling price was decided. Next, the production budget is where one can see DelaSol’s estimated units required. The presumption was made that the VP of operations of DelaSol decided to hold 15% of next …show more content…
This number comes from the production budget, which demonstrated the company would produce 162 units of product for April. With a total budgeted production of 632 units, the company requires an adequate amount of raw materials to meet that production. $5,325.58 was obtained from the budgeted production in April with the approximated direct material costs from direct materials budget. Meanwhile, the beginning finished goods balance is assumed to be $781.87. DelaSol Supply Co. does not hold a lot of finished goods in inventory from previous quarters because the company relies on their made-to-order and just-in-time inventory system which reduces its overall costs. Therefore, DelaSol only held around 20-30 inventories for each month. The $781.87 is resulting from the second quarter inventory in the production budget again, and the standard material cost per unit. Moreover, fixed overhead is assumed to be 94%, since all of the fixed costs like advertising, insurance, salaries etc. will continue to remain fixed. These fees take on a noteworthy amount of overhead. The variable costs are lower since utilities are essentially one of the only variable costs DelaSol has aside from material variable costs, thus, the variable overhead cost is 38%. Work in Progress must be zero since SolGlass glasses cannot be left uncompleted to avoid extra inventory costs, and create maximum made-to-order

    We base the basic pay amount on the minimum wage given by the government. Initially, the basic pay was 444 for all the department heads (Operations Manager, Marketing Manager and Human Resource and Finance Manager.

    Inventory turnover measures the amount of times a company sells its average merchandise inventory during a year. We start with the cost of goods sold (the cost of merchandise inventory the business has sold to its customers) over the average merchandise inventory for the year. To find the average inventory, you would combine both 2013 and 2014 to find the 2014 average and combine 2012 to 2013 to find the average for 2013. Having a high turnover rate means the company is capable of selling merchandise inventory with ease. In this case, the industry average came out to be 17.56 and the 2014 turnover was 4.05 times a year and 2013 turnover was 4.79.…

    Starbucks’s cash conversion cycle was 10 days faster in 2014 than it was in 2013 meaning the company had to finance 10 fewer days of net working capital in 2014. Starbucks held inventory 8 days less in 2014 compared to 2013, which reveals improvement in inventory management. Additionally, Starbucks account receivables remained the same in 2013 and 2014, but account payables were 2 days slower in 2014. All these contributing factors show that Starbucks made improvements from 2013 to 2014 with the ability to convert operating activities into cash more rapidly. Starbucks earned $4.90 of sales for every dollar of fixed assets in 2014, which was slightly lower than $5.08 of sales for every dollar of fixed assets earned in 2013.…

    The stock values are higher than they were in 2014, and the return on stocks has shown a relatively stable gain since 2010. Of concern is that assets are not much more than equity, and there are a high level of intangible assets as compared to tangible assets. There has also been only a slight decrease in both short-term and long-term debt between 2014 and 2015. Since BAH is a consulting company, there is no inventory to be used as a…

    The benefits of it rising have already been mentioned. It is simply just more money being made for people without the unemployment rate going up. Most people would not argue that but there are other benefits as well. One argument that was published in “Business Week” states that “The federal minimum wage was always meant to be a floor, not a ceiling. Today, someone earning the minimum would have to work 749 hours to afford one year of health insurance premiums” (The Current Wage Is Far Too Low).…

    After taxes, I would have only $1,855 a month which is not enough to complete my budget. When this happened, I would hopefully have some of that extra money to pick up the rest or pull from my savings. If this happened before I was able to have any sort of savings or backup money I could modify my budget to pick up the rest. The first thing I would pull from would be my dates section. The money needed to balance the budget would only be $74 which would not be hard to come up with.…

    Body: The average person working at minimum wage will only make about $10,700 in a year. After other expenses like rent, groceries, bills and gas, it is almost impossible to keep a family afloat. If a person were to work for 40 hours a week at $7.25 an hour they would make about $290 a week. After that we would have to subtract about $35.06 for taxes and about $176.48 for living expenses which leaves us with a grand total of $78.46. If this were to be split equally then it gives the average person about 11 dollars to spend a day.…
