Kids Shoe Company would like to increase its profitability over the next year by at least 20%

To do so, the company is considering the following options:


A Replace a portion of its variable cost with an automated machining process This would result in a 20% decrease in variable cost but a 15% increase in Fixed costs. Sales would remain the same.


B Spend Rs 2,50,000/- on a new advertising campaign which would increase sales by 10%


C Increase both, selling price by Rs100 per unit and variable costs by Rs 80/- per unit by using a higher quality leather material in the production of its shoes. The higher price shoe would cause demand to drop by 20% approximately


D Add a second manufacturing facility that would double company's fixed cost but increase sales by 60%
