  • Answer:

    Storage Craft Inc.

    __Adhesive___ can be classified as a class C item.

    Explanation:

    a) Data and Calculations:

    Inventory:

                                                Carbon Fiber   Adhesive  Copper  Wood  Total

    Inventory content:

    Percentage of the items            10%              50%          25%     15%    100%

    Percentage of the dollar value 55%                7%           18%     20%    100%

    b) With Activity-based Costing Method, a class C item is one that has the lowest consumption value. This class constitutes a relatively high proportion of the total number of items but has a relatively low proportion of the total dollar value.  In this scenario, Adhesive has 50% of the inventory items but 7% of the dollar value.  Thus, Adhesive is a class C item.
