    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.
