The management of James Industries has been evaluating whether the company should continue manufacturing a component or buy it from an outside supplier. A $200 cost per component was determined as follows:

Direct materials
Direct labor
Variable manufacturing overhead Fixed manufacturing overhead Total

$ 15 40 10 35 $100

   

James Industries uses 4,000 components per year. After Light, Inc., submitted a bid of $80 per component, some members of management felt they could reduce costs by buying from outside and discontinuing production of the component. If the component is obtained from Light, Inc., James’s unused production facilities could be leased to another company for $50,000 per year.

Required:

. Indicate if the company should make or buy the component and the total dollar difference between these alternatives.
