1. How much of the fixed costs were allocated between the Standard and Deluxe Boxes based on the Lumpsum Analysis Method? Is the CEO correct that the Deluxe Box  is not contributing much to company operating  profit? Please elaborate on your answer and include evidence from Tab 1 of the Excel workbook.

Based on the Lumpsum Analysis Method, the standard boxes and the Deluxe box have a total fixed cost of $156 million. A fixed cost of $ 120,000.00 (Million) was allocated for the production of standard boxes, and a cost of $36,000.00 (Million) was reserve for the production of deluxe boxes.

The CEO’s assumption that the Deluxe box has little impact on the company’s operating profit is incorrect. The operating profit is a company’s total earnings before taxes and short-term responsibilities. According to Lumpsum, Deluxe boxes contribute 63% of the company’s operating profit, while standard boxes contribute 41%. The company earns 63 cents on every dollar spent on deluxe boxes, accounting for 63% of the operating profit.
