**Schedule A** can be solved as shown below (Excel Formula is shown in each cell. Kindly note this to understand):

This is for Level planning; means constant production over period to meet demand.

Its solution will be as shown below:

**Hence total cost of Production for this Schedule A is $ 17,800.00**

**Schedule B:**

Since in this schedule, the only change is that, the # of workers have reduced and hence the production capacity. Since overtime is allowed but no subcontracting, hence its solution will be as shown below:

The Formula will remain same as shown in Schedule A. The only changes I made in Shell B7; Begining workforce is 700:

**Hence the overall cost for this schedule is $ 19,000.00**

**Schedule C:**

In this case, the Formula will be changed in Row No 28 & 29. Row # 28 will be zero.

But Subcontracting is allowed hence the value in Row # 29 will be as shown below:

And its solution is shown below:

**Hence the cost in this case is $ 20,200.00**
