Accounting

Blue Industrial Products Inc. is a diversified industrial-cleaner processing company. The company's Dargan plant produces two products: a table cleaner and a floor cleaner from a common set of chemical inputs (CDG). Each week. 873,000 ounces of chemical input are processed at a cost of \$207.300 into 582,000 ounces of floor cleaner and 291,000 ounces of table cleaner. The floor cleaner has no market value until it is converted into a polish with the trade name FloorShine. The additional processing costs for this conversion amount to \$253.500.

floor shine sells at \$22 per 30-ounce bottle. The table cleaner can be sold for \$20 per 25-ounce bottle. However, the table cleaner can be converted into two other products by adding 291,000 ounces of another compound (TCP) to the 291,000 ounces of table cleaner. This joint process will yield 291,000 ounces each of table stain remover (TSR) and table polish (TP). The additional processing costs for this process amount to \$102,000. Both table products can be sold for \$15 per 25-ounce bottle.

The company decided not to process the table cleaner into TSR and TP based on the following analysis.

.If table cleaner is not processed further, it is allocated 1/3 of the \$207,300 of CDG cost, which is equal to 1/3 of the total physical output. —
If table cleaner is processed further, the total physical output is 1,164,000 ounces. TSR and TP combined account for 50% of the total physical output and are each allocated 25% of the CDG cost.
