Narcolarm, Inc. (A)
This is a series of cases designed for an introductory accounting course. Each case can be introduced at various points in the course. In the (A) case, students must create a beginning balance sheet from some very basic information. The (B) case contains a solution to the (A) case and a set of 10 activities for the first year of operations; students are asked to use T accounts to create an end-of-year balance sheet. The (C) case is much like the (B) case but adds some complications, including manufacturing inventories; it also asks the students to prepare two income statements (from the B case and from the C case) and to compare them, thereby illustrating the impact of costs being held in manufacturing inventories. The (D) case removes manufacturing inventories, and asks the students to prepare a statement of cash flows. The (E) case asks the students to do a CVP analysis and also to consider a make/buy decision. In each case, students are asked to consider the viability of the venture.
