Publication date: 20 January 2017


It's panic time at Blackheath Manufacturing. Profits have been declining, so the owner's son comes to the rescue to run the company. He asks a consultant to determine what's wrong. And the consultant has specific answers: The company's pricing guidelines are all wrong, there needs to be a budgeting system to reverse the downward slide in profits, and a former employee should be rehired. This case provides students with the data for constructing a production and raw-materials budget, flexible-expense budget, income statement, balance sheet, and cash budget.
