The plant has had trouble hiring enough workers despite increasing wages over 30%. Additionally, the assembly procedure for an iPhone is complicated, with 140 steps involving over 100 parts. The plant supervisor considers whether a flexible budget would be useful for uncovering difficulties compared to the static budget currently being used. Students must perform breakeven and flexible budget analyses and compute and use cost variances as they judge solutions for the troubles of the plant with the iPhone contract. This case, which explores the challenges of outsourcing production, could be put to use as an introduction to managerial accounting.
