Question:

Carla, an HR manager at a carpet manufacturing firm, needs to write a number of job descriptions and plans to use O*NET. Carla already knows which positions are needed and has modified the firm’s organization chart. What should Carla do next?

A) write a job summary to clarify the duties of the job

B) interview employees about their responsibilities

C) discuss the positions with department supervisors

D) gather information about the job’s current duties

1. If Carlos Inc chooses the ColorMaster, they would have to sell 100,000 copies to break even. This is calculated by dividing the total costs of $20,000 ($12,000 annual rent + $0.02 paper cost +$0.08 variable cost) by the profit per copy of $0.20. 2. If Carlos Inc chooses the SuperColor, they would have to sell 175,000 copies to break even. This is calculated by dividing the total costs of$61,000 ($35,000 annual rent +$0.02 paper cost + $0.03 variable cost) by the profit per copy of$0.20. 3. Based on the given information, if Carlos Inc is confident that they will sell exactly 500,000 copies next year, they should choose the ColorMaster. This is because the total cost of using the ColorMaster for 500,000 copies would be $120,000 ($12,000 annual rent + $0.02 paper cost +$0.08 variable cost) compared to the total cost of using the SuperColor for 500,000 copies which would be $108,000 ($35,000 annual rent + $0.02 paper cost +$0.03 variable cost). 4. To determine the volume of copies at which both machines would have the same total cost, we need to set the total cost equations for both machines equal to each other and solve for the number of copies. The equation would be: $12,000 +$0.02x + $0.08x =$35,000 + $0.02x +$0.03x Simplifying this equation, we get: $0.05x =$23,000 Solving for x, we get: x = 460,000 Therefore, at 460,000 copies, both machines would have the same total cost.
