Format a report to an appropriate audience and explain the information in such a way as to speak to that particular audience. For example, if the first question is “What is breakeven”, you would need to explain contribution margin, breakeven, fixed, and variable costs – not only how to calculate but what it means to the president for example.
Answer each question as if you were the managerial accountant for the Teledex Company and are presenting to the company president as indicated in the case study.
For each answer explain the terminology and concepts used. For example, in #1 rather than just give the predetermined overhead rate, explain the calculation – this is a professional report from a managerial accountant to the company president.
Use outside sources when necessary BUT MAKE SURE YOU CITE THEM!
When giving a recommendation, back it up with numbers. Make sure you address the original dilemma – lost bids.
