Fixed expenses

Operating income

An automated stamping machine has been developed that can efficiently produce body frames, hoods, and doors to the desired scale. If the machine is leased, fixed expenses will increase by $58,000 per year. The firm’s production capacity will increase, which is expected to result in a 25% increase in sales volume. It is also estimated that labor costs of $33 per unit could be saved because less polishing and finishing time will be required.
