ACC Engineering Pte Ltd started by Ang Cang Cong us ed to manufacture only component
Acc001. It has always been prudent in its business ventures. New generation product Acc002 is
its current top selling product model.
The budget for the coming year starting 1/07/20X4 i s to be prepared as soon as possible. Two
members of the top management team are currently in discussion for the matter:
Managing Director (MD): â€œAre we running late in pre paring Acc002â€™s operating budget for our
accounting year starting 1.7.20X4 and ending 30.6.2 0X5?â€
General Manager (GM): â€œI notice that too. It is al ready November 20X3, and we have not
received your instructions yet. Historically we nee d to redraft 3-4 times before we finalise the
MD: â€œWell, we have strong directives from the board of directors to grow our second wing and
develop Acc003, remember? That took up a lot of ou r energy and time.â€
GM: â€œYes, we have countless meetings focusing on di verting our resources to launching our
third product since last year. Unfortunately the un certainty in the export markets has forced us to
put that on hold. I guess we should now put all ou r attention on budgeting for our star product
Acc002. However, you must take note that the raw m aterialsâ€™ prices quoted by the suppliers are
spotting shorter and shorter validity periods. Pri ces can hardly be kept fixed by us even if we
wish to put in a huge order to commit ourselves to the manufacturers.â€
MD: â€œWho says we want to give such big blanket orde rs to suppliers? Our customers are fishing
for lower and lower prices from us and our formidab le competitors too.
GM: â€œYes boss, I understand that very well as our s ales team has been coming back and asking
for bigger and bigger discounts on behalf of our cu stomers. I was unconvinced and visited many
of our key customers. I even tally a list of deman ds from them. In a nutshell, they want higher
safety levels of stock to be kept by us, yet they a lso want cheaper prices from us too. It is tough
in this current business climate. If we give in to them, our profit would suffer. If we do not, we
exposed ourselves to more competition by allowing c ompetitors to enter into our market as the
customers would seek them out.â€
MD: â€œOn the double, you go and draft me the first s et of the operating budgets for Acc002 for
the year starting 1.7.20X4. Support all your claim s by attaching suppliersâ€™ quotations and let me
make my own judgement. From now onwards, I want to approve all quotations issued by our
staff for quotes above 500 units of Acc002. We nee d to keep very close tab on things in such
That meeting ended with uncertainty in the airâ€¦.
