Q1. The CEO of a leading fan manufacturer is concerned about certain teething issues involving sales of ceiling fans. Ceiling fans come in several models, and each model has numerous Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) involving different colours, blade size etc. Tastes and preferences of consumers vary widely across the vast geography of the country. Recently there have been numerous complaints from the divisional sales offices across the country that they have received supplies of fans in colours and blade sizes, which are not popular in their territory. This has led to loss of sales as distributors in their regions would not accept those fans. Sales people have not been able to achieve their quarterly sales targets, leading to de-motivation and attrition. The CEO has approached you to review the Management Accounting process in the company in the light of the above events. Critically analyze the issues at hand, and suggest a suitable roadmap for the company to revamp its Management Accounting process. (10 Marks)
