An outside supplier has offered to sell a thermostat to Climate-Control for $20 per unit. To evaluate this offer, Climate-Control, Inc., has gathered the following information relating to its own cost of producing the thermostat internally:

  Direct labor   8        120,000   
  Variable manufacturing overhead   1        15,000   
  Fixed manufacturing overhead, traceable   5*       75,000   
  Fixed manufacturing overhead, common, but allocated   10        150,000   
 



  Total cost $ 30      $ 450,000   
 








*40% supervisory salaries; 60% depreciation of special equipment (no resale value).
