Answer questions 1-7.
Question 5 addresses “committed” vs. “discretionary” fixed costs. Below are the working definitions, of both:
Committed Fixed Costs – This is fixed costs which cannot be cut without affecting an organization’s ability to achieve long term goals. (i.e. Machinery, Rent)
Discretionary Fixed Costs – This is Fixed Costs which have no direct relationship between inputs and outputs. These costs are determined on a year to year basis. (i.e. company funded child care center, company funded country club)
Question 6 addresses WACM (Weighted Average Contribution Margin). Technically, each segment should be proportionally weighted, however in this case, on page 4, exhibit one, simply take TOTAL CONTRIBUTION MARGIN / TOTAL REVENUE (last column on right) should yield the same result and save you computational time. This information is found on Page 4, Exhibit one.
