1 INTRODUCTION

1.1 Definition

Go-kart is defined as a land vehicle with body chassis, four wheels, engine, power

transmit system (gear, chain), steering, brake system and tyres attached on the wheel.

Cost analysis is defined as a review and an evaluation of actual or anticipated cost data

with the prices of market. This analysis involves the application of experience,

knowledge and judgment to data in an attempt to project reasonable estimated contact

cost.

Performance analysis is defined as an evaluation of engine to perform a maximum

speed with considered the power, fuel and emission control of the engine.

1.2 Objective

The aim of this thesis is to analyse the cost and performance of go-karts that is

constructed by the author and the author's friends. The author chooses this project

because of the interest in motor racing sport and automobile technology. Finally, the

author can experience the real construction in modeling go-kart that bring afford to

author in future. The specific objectives of this project are:

1. To estimated the cost spending in construct a go-kart

2. To tested the performance of 5 horsepower engine.

3. To justifY the suitable material for a go-kart.

4. To educate the author in technical skil1 and team-building skill.

5. To educate the author in managing the project cost.

2 LITERATURE REVIEW

2.1 Introduction to costing

It is difficult to accurate estimated costs without an understanding ofthe types ofcosts that

might be incurred in a production environment. An understanding ofhow these costs are related to

each other and to parts of the industrial is also required.

Generally, for a successful project, we must consider three elements, cost, time and desired

performance or technology level. Follow by this, the six resources below also important to

achieving the successful project.

I. Money

2. Manpower

3. Equipment

4. Facilities

5. Materials

6. Information or technology (Research and Development)

Ifwe look at any resources, all ofthem require money or cost. That is the reason why the author is

researching in this topic. Besides that, the purpose ofcost analysis is to arrive at a price that is fair

and reasonable to both the producer and buyer. There are some of the elements that affect costs are:

• The capability of management

• The efficiency of labor

• The quality and amount of subcontractor.

Page 13: COST AND PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF A GO-KART … and performance analysis of a go... · Go-kart is defined as a land vehicle with body chassis, four wheels, engine, power transmit system

... •

Each of these factors can change with respect to either product or time.

Costs control was also equally important in cost analysis. Because cost control not only

"monitoring" of costs and recorded the quality of data, but also analyzed the sufficient and

corrective action before it was too late.

Niebel and Draper (1974) had described the interrelationships between different types of

product costs in the following manner. Prime cost, Cp defined as the sum of direct material cost

and the direct labor cost.

Cp Lo+ MD

Factory cost, CF defined as the sum of factory expenses and prime costs. Factory expenses

included the cost for rent, heart, electrical utilities, water and indirect labor.

CF Cp + Factory expenses

Manufacturing cost, CM defined as the sum of general expenses and factory cost. General

expenses will include the cost ofdesign engineering, purchasing, suppliers and salaries.

Manufacturing cost, CM CF + general expenses

When determining the product price. The additional costs, sales expenses will include. Sales

expenses will cover all the cost for selling and delivering the product. Such cost may consist of

advertising expenses, shipping costs, salesman's salaries and commission.

Total cost is then defined as the sum of manufacturing cost and sales expenses.

Total cost, CT = CM + sales expenses

Finally, the products selling price may be given as the sum ofthe total cost and a specified margin

ofprofit.

Project cost can divided into five major groups, these are engineering cost, materials cost,

labor cost, tooling cost and utility cost.

2.1.1 Engineering cost

The engineering cost will include the drafting and the design of the project cost.

May be this cost does not clearly applies in our project, but it is consumes time and the knowledge

ofthe project designer. In the other hand, the cost must be included to employ the engineers in this

situation.

pi

The engineering cost can be calculated as:

Engineering cost (EC) = Total hours for project design X salary/hour

2.1.2 Materials cost

Material is the cost of all components and raw material included in the end product that is

being produced. Sheet metal, automobile engine, pipes, carburetor, spark plug, steering handle and

solid metal are all the example of materials cost that the author used in producing kart. While, the

examples below are not included into material cost: raw material purchased for production tooling,

special purpose test equipment, and materials required for end product packaging during shipment.

Material cost analysis contains bill of materials, finisher, standard and non-standard designs, and

extensive inventories of direct and indirect materials. Normally, cost of material can be found by

historical and measured information.

Most common material cost are direct and indirect materials, while the direct cost can be

subdivided into three categories raw materials, subcontract items, and interdivisional transfer

items. Raw materials include fabricated, intermediate, or processed the material inform that will

receive direct labor work in conversion to another design. Standard commercial materials are a

class of material normally not converted. They are accepted in manufactured state and significant

proportion of total material cost. Subcontract items are parts, components, assemblies,

intermediate materials, or equipment produced by a supplier or vendor in accordance with designs,

specifications or directions applicable only to design being estimated. Interdivisional transfer

materials are materials sold or transferred between divisions, or subsidiaries that have common

ownership or control. Indirect materials are those, materials necessary for the conversion ofdirect

p •

materials and are not directly traceable to the design. Examples: lubricating oils and perishable

tooling.

Shape implies mass or area or length or count or one of the many engineering dimensional

units. The cost per unit shape is in compatible dimensions.

Normally, engineer will determine the theoretical amount or counts of the material

during the material take off. The take offcould be the bill ofmaterials or could be a separate listing

indicate material specification, size, weight, length, shape and so on

Material scarp also happening during the production, this is because of human mistake. Example:

wrong in drilling hole. In manufacturing work when the conversion or changing of the properties

or configuration that make a mistake. It will be classed as waste. Shrinkage is the loss ofmaterials

because of the theft or physical laws. The physical laws were referred to aging, oxidation,

chemical reduction, natural spoilage and so on if reduction is in quality and quantity will occur.

Those losses are determined as:

Sa = St (1 +Ll + L2 + L3)

Where all unit in percentage,

Sa =actual shape in units of area, length, Mass, volume, count, etc

St =theoretical shape required for design in units of area, length, etc

Ll = loss due to scrap, decimal

L2 loss due to waste, decimal

L3 loss due to shrinkage, decimal

The engineer computes the efficiency ofconversion of raw materials as

Es = Stl SaX 100%

Page 17: COST AND PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF A GO-KART … and performance analysis of a go... · Go-kart is defined as a land vehicle with body chassis, four wheels, engine, power transmit system

pt

The relationship between direct material cost, cost of material and salvage cost are given by,

Cdm = Sa Cms - V s

where Cdm cost ofdirect material, USD per unit

Cms = cost of material, compatible to Sa units

Vs salvage cost, USD per unit

Material cost yield also can be calculated as follow

Em (Np Sa Cms - Ns Vs )/ (NsSa Cms) X 100 %

where Em material cost yield, %

Ns = number of salvage unit

a. Joint material cost

Joint materials are those materials that result from the processing of a singular raw material

supply. Joint materials are intermingled up to the point at which the materials are divided into

separable units. This cost confronted with elements of material and labor costs. The points of

division are called split point. Material and labor costs up to these points are referring to the joint

cost or unit costs. There are two classes ofjoint costs:

a. Material being "distributed"

b. Material being "converted" into two or more products.

Figure 2.2 shown the block diagram of two classes ofjoint costs.

Figure 2.2 (A) Material bring "distributed" (B) Material bring "Convelsion"

A distinction was necessary between distributed and converted types ofjoint costs. Usually

we selected a unit of value per unit of reference to separate joint costs into unit cost. Commonly,

These was in dollar value per units of measure: $/m2, $/kg, $/kW, $/hr and $/product unit. The

simplest of measured unit, the clearer its use became and the more accurate of the conclusions

drawn from the analysis. Allocators can be classified as followed:

I. Physical measure (geometry, weight, shape, etc.)

2. Energy (kW, etc)

3. Time (second, year, man hour, etc)

4. Units of finished product, each, 10 units, etc.

The unit of reference will be defined for tranceability of cost to avoid changed the unit through a

process. For example, if kilogram was used for the material stage, kilogram was convenient as a

finished product. Unnecessary unit conversion should be avoided. Here we take an example to

calculating the design with joint cost problem.

I. Labor apportioned on total kglhr

Density = 760kg 1m3

Operator cost USD $16.51 hour

11

Page 20: COST AND PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF A GO-KART … and performance analysis of a go... · Go-kart is defined as a land vehicle with body chassis, four wheels, engine, power transmit system

Output = 400 (0.067) 26.8 kg/hr

Unit labor cost for the design = 26.81 (26.8+ output for other design) X [16.5] X [111200]

2. Labor apportioned on shotslhr and total shots = 400 + number of unit output for

other design.

Unit labor cost for design =4001 total shots X [16.5] X [1/1200]

3. Labor apportioned on kg/hr of final product produced

Total kg/hr for design = 1200/3 X [0.047kg] = 8.8 kg/hr

Unit labor cost for design 8.81 (8.8+total kg/hr for other design) X [16.5] X [11l200]

* Total unit cost for design material cost + labor cost

In this example the material cost is uniformly related to production value of output. Labor cost,

however, can be apportioned on 3 basis. Arithmetically, those lead to different answers for the

contribution oflabor cost ofjoint cost. From three of acceptable solution, one of them is the "best"

one.

b. Selection of materials

The different of materials using in construction go-kart will affect the cost spent on the

project. Each type of material had theirs own specification and properties. So the material that

select in author's project will decided three views point. One ofthe point is money, if we choosing

high quality material in the author kart construction the cost different. Of cause the quality of the

product can be better, but beside that the cost of materials will be increased. This is not meat our

project cost estimating. The other point is material properties,

Example

Some of the materials are easy to weld but some are not.

12

Page 21: COST AND PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF A GO-KART … and performance analysis of a go... · Go-kart is defined as a land vehicle with body chassis, four wheels, engine, power transmit system

Density of irons are grater that aluminum and fiber

Strength and elastic of materials also affected the final product.

The third point is kart performance, to improved the performance ofkart the suitable material must

be choose for better performance.

2.1.3 Labor cost

Labor can be classified into direct-indirect, designed-non designed, wage-salary and blue

collar-management. Payment for wage may be based on attendance or performance.

The labor cost always calculate as:

Labor cost = time x wage

Wage is defined in the context of the operation design. The design may be for one worker

and one machine or several workers with several machine ad processes. The unit for wages one

dimensionally compatible to the time estimate. If the time estimate is in days per unit the wage is

expressed in dollars per days.

Direct labor time for work is directly related to design.

Example: carpenter, assembly in manufacturing

Indirect labor is shop labor other than direct labor.

Example: stockroom clerks, foremen, and material handlers.

Man-hour usually used in measuring the time of the small construction or project.

Man-month and man-year also used to measure the long-term construction.

Example of man-hour units:

Number of man-hours per meter of weld.

Number of man-months per area of cutting.

2.1.4 Tooling cost

Tools cost conduct the costs spending on buying the new tools for construct a new project.

During the construction of new project, special tools required for the certain purpose. So this

special tools need to purchase for construction used. Beside that, some ofthe tool can't be found in

market. In this typed of cased, we needed to build our own tool. Some of tools were expensive.

Especially for the box set tools, such as sockets spanner set, cutting tools and drilling tools also

required in the construction process.

15

Page 24: COST AND PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF A GO-KART … and performance analysis of a go... · Go-kart is defined as a land vehicle with body chassis, four wheels, engine, power transmit system

Some tools were purchased from outside vendors. So detailed estimated oftools costs will be

made. Costs must be considered for a variety of activities associated with tool fabrication. Vernon

(1968) assigns the following percentage distribution of costs associated with metal stamping dies.

3 % models and templates

12% design

3 % patterns castings and labor

50% fabrication time

22% material

10% tryout and testing

100%

Percentage cost distributions and magnitudes vary with the type of tooling being produced

and tooling costs are highly dependent on the volume of parts that are dictated by the production

schedule.

2.1.5 Utility cost

Utility cost was the cost that spent to pay of the electrical energy. We used electricity to

tum on the generators, included labor facility, to repair, to supply, the machines, air-condition and

charging the fuel. So these costs also consume in the project cost spent. Since fuel costs have risen

so rapidly, a separate fuel escalation charge was added later to compensate for the incremental fuel

costs above the base fuel cost. Energy production costs are normally treated as a constant unit cost

(in terms of$IkWh), although any given generator can usually produce energy for slightly less cost

at optimum load than at other loads.
