Cornell Corporation manufactures
faucets. Several weeks ago, the firm
received a special-order inquiry from Yale, Inc. Yale desires to market a faucet similar to
Cornell’s model no. 55 and has offered to purchase 3,000 units. The following data are available:

price of model no. 55 is $180; however, Yale has offered Cornell only $115
because of the large quantity it is willing to purchase.

design modification that will allow a $4 reduction in direct-material cost.
production supervisor notes that the company will incur $8,700 in additional
set-up costs and will have to purchase a $3,300 special device to manufacture
these units. The device will be
discarded once the special order is completed.

labor hour. This figure is based, in

activity of 24,000 labor hours.

“…part of the cost of doing business.”

order because “financially, it’s a loser.” Do you agree with this conclusion if Cornell
currently has excess capacity? Show

could consider if management truly wanted to do business with Yale? Briefly discuss, citing several key
considerations for Cornell in your answer.
