    A company is thinking about changing the layout of the facilities with these estimations in mind:

    -Machine moving and reintallation will cost $100,000
    -Total sales will increase by 20% to $1,200,000 b/c of a decrease in production cycle time required under the new plant layout. Average contribution margin (sales dollars - flexible costs) is 31% of sales.
    -Inventory-related costs will decrease by 25% because of an expected decrease in work-in-process inventory. Currently, the annual average carrying value of work-in-progress inventory is $200,000. The annual inventory financing cost is 15%.

    Should the company implement the proposed changes in layout?
