Electro Company manufactures an innovative automobile transmission for electric cars. Management predicts that ending finished goods inventory for the first quarter will be 138,300 units. The following unit sales of the transmissions are expected during the rest of the year: second quarter, 461,000 units; third quarter, 339,000 units; and fourth quarter, 448,500 units. Company policy calls for the ending finished goods inventory of a quarter to equal 30% of the next quarter’s budgeted sales. (Ending inventory for the first quarter does not comply with company policy.)
Prepare a production budget for both the second and third quarters that shows the number of transmissions to manufacture.

Gelato Supremo is a popular neighborhood gelato shop. The company has provided the following data concerning its operations:
While gelato is sold by the cone or cup, the shop measures its activity in terms of the total number of liters of gelato sold. For example, wages should be $4,500 plus $1.10 per liter of gelato sold, and the actual wages for July were $10,770. Gelato Supremo expected to sell 5,300 liters in July, but actually sold 5,200 liters.
Prepare a report showing Gelato Supremo revenue and spending variances for July. (Input all amounts as positive values. Leave no cells blank – be certain to enter “0” wherever required. Indicate the effect of each variance by selecting “F” for favorable, “U” for unfavorable, and “None” for no effect (i.e., zero variance).)
