Alternatively, Premier can also purchase gear model G37 from an outside supplier for RM120 per unit. If G37 is outsourced, Premier can use the facility where G37 is currently manufactured for production of another gear model G49. This would save Premier RM113,000 in facility rental and other costs presently incurred. REQUIRED: Determine whether Premier should make or buy G37.
