Make Versus Buy Case
ABC Ltd. is a manufacturing company engaged in the manufacturing of valves. They
have been in the business for last 3 years and have been manufacturing only one type of
valves. They started their business initially with sales of 10,000 valves per month and
now they have grown the volume to about 50,000 valves per month. They have been
buying all the raw material for the valve and were doing all the manufacturing in house.
Now they have established themselves in the market and are planning to expand and
produce different varieties of valves. They have their plant in the main city and the total
area of the plant is ...view middle of the document...

Mr. Mohan is worried about the new expansion plan of
the management and is worried where the new workers would come from as he is already
finding shortage of workers for the existing job. He has requested the management not to
go for expansion immediately and look at improving and consolidating the existing set
up. He has sent his request to Mr. S. Kumar Director – Operations.
Mr. Kumar has gone through the request of Mr. Mohan and called a meeting of all the
department heads and explained the situation to all concerned. The marketing manager
has expressed very bullish prospect about the company’s growth and said that the
company should take advantage of growing economy and established brand image of the
company and definitely go for expansion. The finance manger also expressed that this
will result in economy of scale for the products and will further increase the profitability
of the products. Mr. Mohan again expressed his problems regarding availability of
manpower as well as production control and effect on quality and productivity. The
Marketing manager asked the Production manager about the option of outsourcing. Mr.

Mohan is skeptical about the outsourcing option as he felt that the outside agency will
always charge more as he will try to make his profit as well and also is worried about the
possible problems of deliveries. Mr. Kumar asked the Mr. Naresh who is the Purchase
manager about his views. He said that since the suppliers would also be interested in
doing the business, they would not like to delay as with delay they also incur loss. The
Finance manager said that we can look at cost comparison for buying against in house
manufacturing.
After listening to all the views, Mr. Kumar told Mr. Mohan to work out the cost of
production for future sales as per the forecast given by the Marketing department. He also
told Mr. Naresh to collect the details of the future requirements to get the purchase cost
details for few components of the valve.
Mr. Mohan and Mr. Naresh have collected their data and they have presented the data in
the meeting called by Mr. Kumar to review the plan. First the marketing head Mr. Suresh
presented his market forecast and then Mr. Mohan presented his report and explained the
details as follows.
One supervisor with monthly salary of Rs. 5000 with expected increase of 10 % per year.
Direct wages of worker as Rs. 4 per unit. With 10 % reduction in second year, no change
