The product selected (called Chap-Off) is a lip balm that will be sold in a lipstick like tube. The product will be sold to wholesalers in boxes of 24 tubes for $8 per box. Because of excess capacity, no additional fixed manufacturing overhead costs will be incurred to produce the product. However, a $90,000 charge for fixed manufacturing overhead will be absorbed by the product under the company’s absorption costing system.Using the estimated sales and production of 100,000 boxes of Chap-Off, the Accounting Department has developed the following cost per box: Direct material $3.60 Direct labor 2.00 Manufacturing overhead 1.40 Total cost $7.00The costs above include costs for producing both the lip balm and the tube that contains it. As an alternative to making the tube, Silven has approached a supplier to discuss the possibility of purchasing the tubes for Chap-Off. The purchase price of the empty tubes from the supplier would be $1.35 per box of 24 tubes. If Silven industries accepts the purchase proposal, direct labor and variable manufacturing overhead costs per box of Chap-Off would be reduced by 10% and direct material costs would be reduced by 25%. Should Silven Industries make or buy the tubes? Use calculations to prove answer
