Managerial Accounting Case Study 2: Seligram, Inc: ETO 96122050 96122051 96122052 96122073 96122085 96122088 96122092

Group 1

At the beginning, the Electronic Testing Operations (ETO) measured two components of cost: direct labor and burden, but the burden is grouped into a single cost pool that includes all costs and divided by direct labor dollars to obtain the burden rate. (Q2) ETO’s manager picked up 5 components to evaluate the impact of different accounting system. The reported costs from existing system can be computed as follows, given the burden rate 145%:
Product ICA ICB Capacitor Amplifier Diode Direct Labor 917 2,051 1,094 525 519 Burden 1,330 2,974 1,586 761 753 Total Costs 2,247 5,025 2,680 1,286 1,272

Based on the accounting manger’s proposal, the operation burden can be divided into machine-hour and direct labor burden. We use the revised burden rate 21% and machine-hour rate $80.1 to show the updated costs:
Product ICA ICB Capacitor Amplifier Diode Direct Labor 917 2,051 1,094 525 519 Burden 193 431 230 110 109 Machine Hour 18.50 40.00 7.50 5.00 12.00 Machine Burden 1,482 3,204 601 401 961 Total Costs 2,591 5,686 1,924 1,036 1,589

If ETO follows the consultant’s recommend, treats the main test room and mechanical test room as different cost pools. The three-burden-pool system reports the cost: ($63.34 for main room burden rate and $112.63 for mechanical room)
Product ICA ICB Capacitor Amplifier Diode Direct Labor 917 2,051 1,094 525 519 Burden 193 431 230 110 109 Main Room Mech. Test Room Hour Room Hour Burden 8.50 10.00 1,665 14.00 26.00 3,815 3.00 4.50 697 4.00 1.00 366 7.00 5.00 1,007 Total Costs 2,774 6,297 2,021 1,001 1,635

Among the three costing systems, we prefer the consultant’s proposal (Q3). The accounting manager treats the machine hours as separate cost pool because the automated operation process leads to large…...

...might have been at the expense of capacity utilisation. The quarterly results show that revenue management continues to be poor. For the quarter in question, capacity as measured by the ASK went up only a marginal 1% but traffic as measured by RPK was down 6% and the seat load factor down five percentage points to 72.5% The yield may have increased (for the full year, it rose 4% to 24.7 sen, but the figure for the quarter was not readily available in the results and presentation announcements) but the capacity was less utilised, reflected by revenue remaining static. It has been estimated that at constant load factors a one percentage point increase in yield will lead to a RM500mil increase in revenue for Malaysia Airlines. If that’s the case, and if Malaysia Airlines increased its yield by around five percentage points to match Singapore Airlines, the incremental increase in revenue would be RM2.5bil, enough to give it healthy profit of more than a billion ringgit! On a full-year basis, its net loss is RM2.524bil. If you took out the RM1.095bil one-off provisions, it works out to a loss of RM1.429bil. The main contribution to the loss is a one third rise in fuel costs to RM1.462bil if not for which the airline would have made a small profit. That’s still bad but not so bad that Malaysia Airlines cannot recover from this. The underlying problem is revenue management – if you got everything else right and got revenue management wrong, then the airline is, well, screwed.......

...on this case, the CEO of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Dato Idris Jala has announced a drastic restructuring of human resources. It is being restructured by terminating the staff of Malaysia Airlines (MAS). As we all know, MAS is considered as a big company and the number of staff in MAS is quite a large number. When there are a lot of staffs, they need to pay salaries to all of them. Salary is one of the expenses that they need to incur in the cost. Since MAS were facing a lot of problems, they need to cut some of the cost and one of it is by terminating the unproductive staffs. However, MAS is well known with their good UNION of workers. The definition of UNION is a democratic organization of working people standing up for their rights on the job. There is one situation that really happens in MAS that shows the UNION is very strong in MAS. In a case of MAS, when MAS planned to the share swap arrangement with Air Asia, it was not being agreed by the UNION. It is because of them, by joining Air Asia, it will give a bad image to MAS. MAS are a very well known and established company whereas Air Asia is a low budget company. Due to that, MAS management has cancelled the deal with Air Asia. This one example has shown us that the UNION in MAS is a strong UNION. When the CEO of MAS had come out with the idea of restructuring of human resources, they should also come out with a scheme named Mutual Separation Scheme or MSS. This scheme is actually being funded by compensation. MAS......

Mas Privatisation

...15% Title of essay: On 8 August 2014, Khazanah National announced plans to privatise Malaysia Airlines (MAS) in an attempt to revive the national carrier as it was struggling financially. Without doubt, the twin aviation disasters, MH370 and MH17, have also further contributed negatively towards MAS financials. The former prime minister of Malaysia, Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that the national flag carrier should be privatised as it is running at a loss. The Malaysia Airlines System Employees Union (Maseu), on the other hand, strongly stated that they will only support the privatisation of MAS if there is to be a new management team. In the past 12 years, MAS has undertaken about half-a-dozen restructuring exercises. Considering its current situation, the idea to privatise is seen as a necessity. In your opinion, can MAS turn itself around if it is now to be privatised? Why or why not? Justify your stand and support your arguments with reasons and examples. You should write between 600 and 650 words. Instructor: Mrs Anuratha Murugagoo On 8 August 2014, Khazanah Nasional Berhad (“Khazanah”) proposed an official petition to the Board of Directors of Malaysian Airline System Berhad (“MAS”) to handle a particular capital cutback and refund apply (“Proposed SCR”) of MAS’ ordinary shares. It shows the strategies of Khazanah National to privatise Malaysia Airlines (MAS) in an effort to recover the federal carrier while it was striving financially. Privatisation can be......

Air Asia & Mas

...Question 1 Analyze the current situation facing MAS and AirAsia using the internal and external strategic environment analysis model. Discuss what aspects and why did their collaboration take place. Answer Background to AirAsia A ‘no-frills’ airline is defined as one “That uses charter and/or scheduled flights to offer bargain-basement fares. Budget airlines usually land at and take-off from secondary airports, do not provide in-flight meals or refreshments, and may not even offer numbered seat allocation. Their ticket prices are fixed and non-refundable in case of a cancellation or no-show”. AirAsia is one of the fastest growing airline companies in the world, with a reputation as a low-cost, ‘no frills’ airline. It was originally a government owned business; yet, due to heavy debt, it was bought by former Time Warner executive Tony Fernandes in 2001, and this is where the real story begins. Their vision, under the slogan "Now Everyone Can Fly", is “To be the largest low cost airline in Asia and serving the 3 billion people who are currently underserved with poor connectivity and high fares”,(ii) and their mission is, under the banner of 'Affordable Airfares', “To attain the lowest cost so that everyone can fly with AirAsia,” without any compromise to Flight Safety Standards, as well as, creating a worldwide recognizable brand with a ‘family’ atmosphere within working conditions for employees. (iii) These statements clearly show AirAsia’s value. Cost......

Mas.. Case Analysis

...Market Analysis Summary The market for office cleaning in the Davao City area includes household subdivision, small offices (1-5 employees), medium offices (6-20 employees) and large offices (21 employees and up). In the Kansas City area, businesses with offices are growing as the service sector increases, with a net of 3,000 new businesses established in 2008. Due to the economic renewal occurring in this community, this growth is expected to continue over the next two years. Small offices are targeted as well as large, although margins will be lower due to the increased amount spent on sales and travel relative to medium and large offices, because many small businesses will expand, giving HH chores services a foothold in this market by the time competitors are willing to sell to them. Market Segmentation The market for HH chores services is comprised of small offices, medium offices and large offices in the Davao City area. Household Subdivisions: This group serves as the fundamental market and have the greater demands Small Offices: Either newly established ventures, or small businesses designed to remain small, few cleaning businesses seek to serve this market because of the cost in doing so.
