Limiting Factors

www.accountingclassroom.com

Session Objectives

Identify a single limiting factor Determine the optimal production plan where an organisation is restricted by a single limiting factor Formulate a linear programming problem involving two variables Determine the optimal solution to a linear programming problem using a graphical approach Use simultaneous equations, where appropriate, in the solution of a linear programming problem

www.accountingclassroom.com

A factor that restricts output. Objective should be to concentrate on those products/services that yield the largest contribution per limiting factor. Limiting factor decisions involve determination of the contribution earned by each different product from each unit of the limiting factor.

www.accountingclassroom.com

Step 1: Identify the limiting factor Step 2: Calculate contribution per unit for each product Step 3: Calculate contribution per unit of limiting factor

Contribution per unit of limiting factor = Contribution per unit / Units of limiting factor required per unit

www.accountingclassroom.com

Step 4: Rank products Step 5: Make products in rank order until scarce resources are used up

www.accountingclassroom.com

Example

www.accountingclassroom.com

Solution

Step 1: Identify the limiting factor

Machine hours

Given as X 12, Y 10, Z 6

www.accountingclassroom.com

Contribution per unit of limiting factor = Contribution per unit / Units of limiting factor required per unit Thus, X = 12 / 6 = 2, Y= 10 / 2 = 5, Z=6 / 1 = 6

www.accountingclassroom.com

Step 4: Rank products ( make product with highest contribution per unit of limiting factor first)

Ranking: Z, Y, X

Step 5: Make products in rank order until scarce resources are used up

First 2000 units of Z should be made, then 2000 units of Y and finally with left machine hours X

Linear programming is an operations research technique It can be used to decide on the optimum use of scarce resources.

www.accountingclassroom.com

There must be a linear relationship between the factors.

www.accountingclassroom.com

Step 1: Define the unknowns Step 2: Frame the constraints equation Step 3: State the objective functions Step 4: Graph the constraints Step 5: Graph objective function Step 6: Establishing feasible values for the unknowns

www.accountingclassroom.com

Example

www.accountingclassroom.com

Solution: Step 1

Let: x = number of units of X produced and sold during the year y= number of units of Y produced and sold during the year

www.accountingclassroom.com

www.accountingclassroom.com

Objective is Maximise Contribution. So objective is: Maximise 15x + 25y

www.accountingclassroom.com

2.5x + 5y 10000 2.5x + 5y = 10000 Put x = 0, then y = 2000 Y= 2000 If y= 0, x = 2.5x +0=10000, X= 4000 Draw the two points (0, 2000) and (4000, 0) on a graph to represent the line for labour constraint

Y units

X units

A Resource for ACCA Exam Preparation

Take any reasonable value of maximum contribution 15x + 25y = 37500 If x = 0, y = 1500 and If y = 0, x= 2500 To draw 15x + 25y =37,500 draw (0, 1500) and (2500,0) as the two points. NOTE: Any contribution line can be drawn. The purpose is only to establish the slope

Method 1: Calculate the contribution earned at each point A, B and C.

Point A =15 * 0 + 25 * 2000=50000 Point B = 15 * 3000 +25 *500 =57,500 Point C = 15 * 3000 = $45000 Pont B gives maximum contribution

www.accountingclassroom.com

Method 2: Slide the objective function line away from the origin to the furthest possible point

The optimal solution is B where sales constraint intersects labour constraint

www.accountingclassroom.com

Algebraic Solutions

Optimal solutions can be arrived at using simultaneous equations instead of graphs.

www.accountingclassroom.com

Example:

John manufactures garden chairs and armchairs. Each product passes through a cutting process and an assembling process. One garden chair makes a contribution of $50 and takes 6 hours cutting time and 4 hours assembly time. One armchair makes a contribution of $40 and takes 3 hours cutting time and 8 hours assembly time There is a maximum of 36 cutting hours available each week and 48 assembly hours Find the output that maximises contribution.

www.accountingclassroom.com

A Resource for ACCA Exam Preparation

Solution

Let x = number of garden chairs produced each week Y= number of armchairsproduced each week Constraints are: 6x +3y =36 4x +8y =48 with x 0, y 0 Solving for x and y gives, x = 4 and y= 4 Thus maximum contribution = 4 x $50 + 4 X$40= $360

www.accountingclassroom.com

Linear relationships must exist Only suitable when there is only one objective function It is assumed that variables are completely divisible Assumed that situation remains static in all respects
