# special order problem

The Walter Jewelry Company produces a bracelet which normally sells for \$79.95. The company produces 1,500 units annually but has the capacity to produce 2,000 units. A special order for manufacturing and selling 200 bracelets at \$49.95 has been received which would not disrupt current operations. Current costs for the bracelet are as follows:
Direct materials \$17.00
Direct labor 14.50
Total \$40.50

In addition, the customer would like to add a monogram to each bracelet which would require an additional \$2 per unit in additional labor costs and Walter Company would also have to purchase a piece of equipment to create the monogram which would cost \$1,600. This equipment would not have any other uses.
