Indian Milk Distribution Company Forecasting Costs
An executive at Indiana Milk Distribution Company, is charged to find out why his company's actual sales have varied from its 13-week cash flow forecast. Large discrepancies were discovered in both price and volume, as customers stocked up on milk after the US president issued high-alert warnings about a potential war in the Middle East. In this case students examine how much of the variance is due to volume versus price by reviewing the company's flex budget analysis.
