Great lecture sir well done …. my question is though d lecture is very clear , i really did not see difference between throughput and contribution apart from the fact that material is the only significant variable cost. I hope i pass this paper f5 that lots of ppl have been crying over and running away from.This is will be my first attempt coming September .

That is really the only difference (but an important one 🙂 )

Wow! A very good presentation. Thanks very much John. Based on the lecture, throughput is the same as contribution (fixed cost + profit or sales value-direct material cost). All costs in the factory is fixed except the direct cost of materials (variable). The total factory cost or operating expenses is the fixed production costs with an element of labour cost. Here, we also use throughput p.u. for each product to calculate the maximum or total throughput for the products and not the throughput p.u. of the limiting factor.
John is it advisable to rejects products with TPAR of less than one?
In calculating the TPAR for each product, is it also necessary to calculate the overall or average TPAR for the company and then measure each individual product TPAR against the overall or average TPAR?. Using Example 2
TPAR = $404,000/$360,000=1.12 OR
Return per hour = $404,000/48,000hrs=$8.42
Cost per hour = $360,000/48,000hrs=$7.50
TPAR = $8.42/$7.50 = 1.12
Product A TPAR is above the average/overall ratio.

No – we would not reject projects with a TPAR less than 1 because they are still generating throughput. However, preference is always given to projects with the highest TPAR’s and we would always be looking for ways of increasing the TPAR’s.
There is no merit in calculating an average TPAR.

Okay John, noted and thanks for the clarification.

You are welcome 🙂

Good evening Mr. John,
in example 2, when calculating “maximum throughput”,
A: 2.000 units X $17
B: 8.000 units X $8
But in textbook, when calculating maximum throughput,
textbook uses “total machine hours” instead of “units”……. For example, in this case,
A: 40.000 hours X $17
B: 8.000 hours X $8
? Could you explain why textbook uses total hours instrad of units? I thought I only use units according to your lecture..
(BPP reading textbook throughput example 3.1)

You can use hours at throughput per hour, or you can use units at throughput per unit – both will give exactly the same answer.
To take hours at throughput per unit would make absolutely no sense at all!!
