Discussion Question:



Ballpoints Manufacturing Company (BMC) located in an Asian country, is a market leader in manufacturing and selling of executive class ballpoints. The company produces only one brand – Executive Qalam bearing the brand name of Extv. These high class ballpoints are used by senior corporate executives only. Major sales of the company go across the Globe. A thin amount of quantity is sold in the country only to the big corporations on the orders received from them.


In order to serve the niche, BMC enjoys outclass research facilities at its headquarter. To stimulate the workers, the company offers many incentive plans. Due to these lucrative incentive plans, the workers prefer to work hard and stay happily in the company even during calendar holidays. One of such plans has recently been developed by the core management team working at the company’s factory.


During the month of February, BMC has received a special export order from Corporate Executives International (CEI) of a European country of 150 Qalams to be delivered in the month of March. These Qalams are to be used by the corporate executives to be gathered at the coming Corporate Executive Conference on “Corporate Financial Leadership” held by CEI.


Mr. Management Accountant – BMC’s management accountant with consultation of the company’s Core Management Team has estimated a special wage rate of Rs. 300 per hour per worker for special group of workers to be worked on this order. The workers will remain for the normal working hours - 8 hours a day for the complete 30 days period.


The company’s Core Management Team is planning to introduce an Incentive Bonus Plan. Under which, the company expects its workers to complete their daily work 2 hours earlier than the normal 8 hours job. As per the plan, each of the workers working on this special order, in addition to the regular earnings, will be given the bonus as follows:
 ·      40% of 20% of the total time saved;

  • 25% of the next 30% of the total time saved; &
  • 15% of the remaining time saved.



By considering the above information you are required to answer the following:


  • Determine effective hourly earnings of each worker under the new incentive plan; &
  • Does this incentive plan suits the company? Support you answer with logical reason not exceeding two lines.

Earning = hours worked x rate per hour + {Time saved / Time allowed x Hours worked x Rate per hour} this will give difference between workers work hours
