Prepare a 2012 production budget for K's Toys car production

Prepare a 2012 production budget that meets the sales expectations. K's will begin January with no inventory for any product. It needs to be broken down by machine so that Stan and Kyle know what each of them needs to make on their machines. K's prefers to have all of the production completed the month before the products are to be sold and shipped; so all of the sales for May should be working hours of December to meet the needs of the distributors of the small car, ball, and the bat. The large cars must be ready on the production budget that approaches maximizing profit or cash flow. Explain the basic guidelines you used to arrive at your decisions.

K's Toys Inc.
Beginning of year budgeting and planning

K's Toys Inc. is a small manufacturer that makes toys for sale to distributors who then resells them in national chain stores. They sell to only a few distributors and that tends to make the sales irregular with larger sales during the summer and at Christmas, and very few sales during the rest of the year.
They have a limited product line that includes: small car, large car, plastic bat and plastic ball.
