PRODUCTION, PURCHASES, AND DIRECT LABOR BUDGETS Rokat Corporation is a manufacturer of tables sold to schools, restaurants, hotels, and other institutions. The table tops are manufactured by Rokat, but the table legs are purchased from an outside supplier. The assembly department takes a manufactured table top and attaches the four purchased table legs. It takes 18 minutes of labor to assemble a table. The company follows a policy of producing enough tables to ensure that 40 percent of next month’s sales are in the finished goods inventory. Rokat also purchases sufficient materials to ensure that materials inventory is 60 percent of the following month’s scheduled production. Rokat’s sales budget in units for the next quarter is as follows:







Rokat’s ending inventories in units for June 30, 2007, are as follows:

1. Calculate the number of tables to be produced during August 2007.

2. Disregarding your response to Requirement 1, assume the required production units for August and September are 1,600 and 1,800, respectively, and the July 31, 2007, materials inventory is 4,200 units. Compute the number of table legs to be purchased in August.

3. Assume that Rokat Corporation will produce 1,800 units in September 2007. How many employees will be required for the assembly department in September? (Fractional employees are acceptable since employees can be hired on a parttime basis. Assume a 40 hour week and a 4 week month.)
