Outsourcing (make-or-buy) decision – hewlett-packard

Assume a division of Hewlett-Packard currently makes 8,000 circuit boards per year used in producing diagnostic electronic instruments at a cost of $33 per board, consisting of variable costs per unit of $26 and fixed costs per unit of $7. Further assume Sanmina-SCI offers to sell Hewlett-Packard the 8,000 circuit boards for $33 each. If Hewlett-Packard accepts this offer, the facilities currently used to make the boards could be rented to one of Hewlett-Packard’s suppliers for $29,000 per year. In addition, $3 per unit of the fixed overhead applied to the circuit boards would be totally eliminated.
