Click here to order similar paper @Tutoriage.us. 100% Original.Written from scratch by professional writers.

We have all worked on projects whether formally (implementation of new software) or informally (planning a school program). Consider your experience on a project and what contributed to its success or failure. Perhaps it is the project’s completion on time, in scope, within budget limits, stakeholder satisfaction, increase in market share, quality improvement, or other business measures of success or failure.

Conduct research beyond your course materials and develop a position on what constitutes project success, and how measures of success might change for projects in for-profit, non-profit, government organizations, and for projects in international environments.

Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories, which require supporting citations along with at least one scholarly, peer-reviewed reference in supporting your answer unless the discussion calls for more. Keep in mind that these scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search specific to scholarly references.

ACCT 6004 GROUP CASE STUDY ASSIGNMENT
‘J&B Sports’ and its Customer ‘Sports-Strength’

Introduction to J&B Sports
J&B Sports manufactures custom club soccer uniforms (jerseys, shorts, socks and jackets) and
supplies local Adelaide clubs and their teams each season. J&B Sports focuses on quick delivery
and fast customer response time. Recently, J&B Sports has experienced a decrease in available
cash and an increase in inventory. Sales revenue has been increasing at a faster rate than
expenses, generating a higher level of profits. Approximately half of J&B’s asset base is
financed through debt and half through equity. The industry faces increasing pressure from
imports, particularly from China, which creates a need to compete on price. However,
customers in this market are willing to pay a higher price for goods that are durable and of
high quality. The internet is becoming an increasingly important sales channel and source of
competition at the same time.
The company, which started out as J&B Uniforms, was founded in 1962 by the Hellas family
and began its operations manufacturing work uniforms for local factory workers in South
Australia. As manufacturing declined in the local economy, the family began to look for a
market niche to guide the company’s future growth. Recognising the increasing number of
youth participating in organised sports, and the projected growth in popularity of soccer in
Australia, the family decided to focus on the manufacture of custom soccer uniforms. The
family has made a conscious decision not to follow the textile industry’s trend of transferring
manufacturing operations to China and other foreign countries that offer cheap labour. They
have chosen to remain a domestic producer and to focus on quick delivery and fast customer
response within the local market.
The company manufactures and supplies three main products in a typical soccer kit: custom
soccer jerseys (tops), custom soccer shorts and soccer socks.

Sports-Strength – part of J&B’s supply chain
J&B Sports is part of a supply chain whereby they source fabrics and other raw materials from
their suppliers, and they in turn also use retail outlets such as ‘Sports-Strength’ to take
customer orders and supply custom soccer uniform items on behalf of the manufacturer.

Martin Cole, senior sales director at Sports-Strength was reviewing the latest corporate
income statement prior to meeting with the company’s chief financial officer. “I don’t
understand these numbers”, Martin thought. “We fell short of our projected sales volume of
jerseys by 10%, so I was anticipating net income to be 10% lower than expected as well. But
that’s not what the numbers are showing. How can I use this information to help me plan for
the coming year?”.
The company had been preparing absorption costing income statements, which it used for
external reporting. To shed some light on the situation, the new internal accountant prepared
an additional income statement using variable costing – a contribution format income
statement for the year.

Exhibit 2 – Sports-Strength’s Contribution Format Income Statement
For simplicity, assume that Sports-Strength sell only one product, soccer jerseys. SportsStrength
buys each jersey from J&B for $14.80 and sells it for $20. Sports-Strength pays a fixed
wage and 6% commission to sales staff.

4

Activity 1: Cost Behaviour and Cost Estimation at Sports-Strength
Required:
1) Identify each of the following costs incurred by Sports-Strength in terms of its cost
behaviour – variable, fixed, mixed or step:
a. Monthly sales staff payroll of $5,000 plus 6% sales commission on jerseys
b. $200 monthly rental for credit card processing equipment
c. Cost of goods sold for $14.80 per jersey
d. The cost ($1) of price tags attached to each jersey
e. Inventory insurance that costs $2 per $1,000 of sales
f. Website hosting cost of $100 per month

2) Refer to the Sports-Strength’s Contribution Format Income Statement for the year ended
February 1, 2019 (Exhibit 2) and answer the following:

a. What is Sports-Strength’s operating profit equation?
b. How many jerseys has Sports-Strength sold during the year? If it has sold 10% less than
it had expected, how many jerseys had it planned to sell? Assuming a 30% tax rate, how
much more income after tax would the extra 10% of sales have generated?
c. If Sports-Strength sells 55,000 jerseys what total expense will be reported on the
income statement?
d. The Messenger, a local newspaper, has approached Martin Cole with a $20,000 annual
ad campaign. If Martin accepts the ad campaign, what will change in Sports-Strength’s
operating profit equation?
e. Assume Martin Cole accepts The Messenger’s ad campaign and as a result SportsStrength
sells 60,000 jerseys next year. Prepare a contribution format income
statement for the year.
f. Discuss (max 500 words) the results shown in part e above. Should the ad campaign be
accepted? Comment on the distribution of costs between fixed and variable for Sports
Strength. How can the information on cost behavior and the contribution margin
statement be used by management to make decisions and to plan? Give two specific
examples of decisions and plans that could be made with this information.

5

Activity 2: CVP Analysis for Sports-Strength
Sports-Strength has just received notice from J&B Sports that the price of a soccer jersey will
be increasing to $15.30 next year. In response to this increase, Sports-Strength is planning its
sales and marketing campaign for the coming year. Managers have developed two possible
plans and have asked you to evaluate them.
The first plan calls for passing on the entire $0.50 cost increase to customers through an
increase in the sales price. Managers believe that $10,000 in additional advertising targeted
directly to current customers will allow the sales force to reach the current year’s sales volume
of 51,975 jerseys.
The second plan relies on a new advertising campaign that focuses on the sales price remaining
the same as last year. The campaign would include a new database that offers more potential
customers than Sports-Strength has had access to in the past. The cost of the campaign is
expected to be $5,000. Managers believe that the campaign will be more successful in
generating new sales than the current incentive-based sales and marketing plan. As a result,
they want to reduce the sales commission from 6% to 4% of sales and increase sales salaries
by $22,000. The campaign is expected to generate an additional 10% in sales volume.
Required:
Using the information in Exhibit 2 as a starting point, answer the following questions:
a. What is Sports-Strength’s breakeven point in units and dollars before any of the above
changes take place (ie. given the sale price and cost structure indicated in Exhibit 2)?
b. What was Sports-Strength’s margin of safety in units and dollars in the year ending 1
February, 2019?
c. How much would operating income decrease if Sports-Strength did nothing to recover
the increase in cost of goods sold, all other things being equal?
d. Determine the expected operating income under each proposed sales and marketing
plan.
e. Why does the first plan result in the reduction in operating income that is greater than
the $10,000 advertising?
f. Which plan do you recommend to management? Write a memo in the proper format
which justifies your recommendation by providing relevant and appropriate supporting
information. Include and explain any qualitative factors which may affect your
recommendation.

Activity 3: Job Order Costing and Ethics in J&B Sports
J&B Sports custom makes soccer tops (jerseys), shorts, socks and jackets for individual clubs
and players within the clubs. Players order their name and selected number on the back of
each jersey. Clubs also have specific requirements regarding the sponsors’ logos which need
to be added to the clothing. The kits are manufactured in batches and product costs are
accumulated for each batch or job. When the job is completed, the total costs accumulated
for the job are divided by the number of units produced to determine the average cost per
unit.
J&B Sports has determined the following unit costs for three of its four products:
Shorts Jerseys Jackets
Direct materials $4.47 $6.85 $44.72
Direct labour 2.40 1.92 14.40
Manufacturing overhead 3.00 2.40 18.00
Total unit cost $9.87 $11.17 $77.12
Sales price per unit $12.00 $14.80 $125.00

On May 31, J&B Sports Work in Process Inventory consisted of the following items:
Job Units Accumulated Cost
PA – 1247 Shorts 100 $717
JE – 1397 Jerseys 200 1,802
JA – 426 Jackets 50 3,046
$5,565

During June, a total of $191,591 in direct materials and $74,208 in direct labour costs were
incurred. Units finished and sold during June were as follows:
Product Units Finished Units Sold
Shorts 13,500 14,000
Jerseys 3,200 3,100
Jackets 2,500 2,500

7

Required
a. Given that J&B Sports uses direct labour dollars as its application base, what is the
company’s predetermined overhead rate?
b. Taking into consideration only these three products:
i. Calculate the total manufacturing cost for June. ii. Calculate
the Cost of Goods Manufactured for June.
iii. Calculate the Ending Work in Process Inventory for June.
iv. Calculate Gross Profit for June.
c. For each of the three products, state whether there are more, fewer, or the same
number of finished units in Finished Goods Inventory on June 30 than there were on
June 1.
d. J&B Sports board of directors has adopted a long-term strategy of maximising value of
the shareholders’ investment. To achieve this goal, the board established the following
five-year financial objectives:
• Increase sales by 10% per year
• Increase income before taxes by 15% per year
• Increase dividends by 12% per year.
The managing director added a fourth financial objective last year: maintaining cost of
goods sold at a maximum of 70% of sales. The company failed to achieve this goal in
the year ending 1 February 2019, and it appears that it will again not be achieved in
the current year. Because employee bonuses are tied to performance on all four
objectives, the new internal accountant is concerned about company morale. She
decides that if she overestimates the amount of ending work in process inventory and
reclassifies the fabric inspection costs as administrative rather than manufacturing
overhead costs, cost of goods sold for the year will fall below the 70% maximum level.
She makes the adjustments and presents the managing director a set of financial
statements that meet most of the financial objectives.
i. Explain why the adjustments the accountant made are
unethical, referring to the Australian Accounting code of ethics.
ii. What additional costs, both monetary and nonmonetary might
J&B Sports incur because of the accountant’s actions?

8

Activity 4: Activity Based Costing at J&B Sports
The new internal accountant at J&B Sports is concerned about the current method of
allocating overhead to production, using a volume-based allocation base (direct labour cost)
and one plant-wide overhead rate. She decided to undertake an activity analysis across the
manufacturing processes of the company and to identify the relevant cost drivers of these.
She determined that J&B Sports had the following four activity pools and associated activity
drivers:
Activity Pool Activity Driver
Product design Number of product lines
Warehousing/Packaging Number of batches
Cutting Number of cuts
Sewing Direct labour hours

Once the activity pools were established, manufacturing overhead costs are assigned to these:
Product Design

Warehousing/
Packaging
Cutting Sewing
Indirect labour $40,000 $40,000 $7,500 $15,000
Depreciation 7,396 34,696
Indirect materials 37,512 110,869 135,861 101,064
Rent
Utilities 41,330
Insurance
Other 6,377 12,297 3,747 14,730
Total $83,889 $170,562 $147,108 $206,820
Data was also collected on the activity drivers for each activity pool:
Activity Pool Total Activity
Product design 3 product lines (jerseys, shorts,
jackets)
Warehousing/Packaging 9,170 batches
Cutting 56,580 cuts
Sewing 86,175 direct labour hours

Chris Desmond, J&B Sports’ operations manager, recently received a sales brochure for a new
electric cutting tool. Based on the tool’s specifications, Chris believes that J&B Sports could
increase the batch size on jersey production to 50 jerseys, up from the current 35 jerseys.

9

While the cutting tool would be used on shorts and jackets as well, other production factors
prevent increasing the batch sizes for these products.
The new tool would increase annual operating costs by $14,082. Before deciding whether to
purchase the cutting tool, Chris wants to know how the new tool will affect the cost of
producing the company’s three main products.

Required
a. Calculate the activity rates for each of the four activity pools before the new tool was
purchased.
b. Classify each activity using the ABC cost hierarchy categories.
c. Calculate and present a schedule of the total annual cost included in the cutting activity
cost pool assuming the cutting tool is purchased.
d. Calculate the cost per cut assuming the cutting tool is purchased.
e. Identify any other activity rates that will be affected by the purchase of the new cutting
tool and explain how they will be affected.
f. Explain to Chris why unit costs for all three products will change after the purchase of
the new cutting tool.
g. Do you recommend that Chris purchase the new cutting tool? Write a memo in the
proper format which justifies your recommendation by providing relevant and
appropriate supporting information. Include and explain any qualitative factors which
may affect your recommendation.

Your second writing assignment is a research paper, which will be based on library research, using scholarly
publications. Below we provide a list of suggested architectural monuments as well as a series of art historical concepts
covered during the semester. Your paper will be expected to discuss one monument of your selection form the provided
list below and at least 2 concepts which you will integrate to your argument in the paper. This paper should be a clear
and balanced discussion of your monument addressing all available evidence (archaeological, visual or
textual evidence) about the monuments, and end with 2 final paragraphs that includes your evaluation of
the monument based on the two concepts you have chosen to analyze the monument.
Protocols
 Art Historical Concepts and Glossary: Below is a list of art historical terms that are discussed during the
lectures and in your readings. You are expected to make use of at least three of these concepts as part
of your argument in the paper. Some bibliographic suggestions are provided below. Your paper should
demonstrate your familiarity and use of such visual analytical tools.
o Glossary: At the end of your paper, please include 100-word definitions of each art historical concept.
You are encouraged to read various scholarly resources that offer discussions of these concepts (like the
Nelson and Shiff’s Critical Terms for Art History volume or the Grove Dictionary of Art).
 Author-Date style referencing. You are expected to use author-date style referencing widely used in the
Humanities and Social Sciences for citing your sources of information. You will get handouts on how to do this in
your sections. For this paper you should use library resources (hard copies and digital sources). Please avoid using
non-scholarly work posted on the internet such as amateur websites such as history.com etc.
 Figures: You must also provide relevant images (drawings, plans, photographs to properly illustrate your
paper. Each image should be sequentially numbered (Figure 1, Figure 2, etc) and the source of the image should
be indicated in its caption using the Author-Date style system which you will be using in the rest of the paper.
Image sources should appear as entries in your bibliography.
 Bibliography: Ideally, your bibliography should include 2-3 books that will provide the (art) historical context for
the monument you are choosing and 3-4 critical scholarly articles (journal articles or edited book chapters) on
your specific monument.
