January 30, 2017

Can someone help me with this question:
Ballina Products manufactures and distributes toys to retail outlets. One of the company’s products, RC Helicopter, requires 3 kilograms of material A in the manufacture of each unit. The company is now planning raw material needs for the third quarter of 20×1, the quarter in which peak sales of RC Helicopters occur. In order to keep production and sales moving smoothly, the company has the following inventory requirements:
a. The finished goods inventory on hand at the end of each month must be equal to 5,000 units plus 25 percent of the next month’s sales. The finished goods inventory on June 30 is budgeted to be 13,750 units.
b. The raw materials inventory on hand at the end of each month must be equal to one half of the following month’s production needs for raw materials. The raw materials inventory on June 30 is budgeted to be 54,375 kilograms.
c. The company maintains no work in process inventories.
A sales budget for RC Helicopter for the last six months of 20×1 is given below:
Budgets sales in units
July 35,000
August 40,000
September 50,000
October 30,000
November 20,000
December 15,000
Required:

1. Prepare a production budget for RC Helicopter for the months July-October.
2. Examine the production budget which you prepared in (1) above. Why will the company produce more units than it sells in July and August, and less units than it sells in September and October?
3. Prepare a budget showing the quantity of material A to be purchased for July, August, and September 20×1 and for the quarter in total.
