Question;(TCO 3) Which of the following;does NOT represent a cause-and-effect relationship?;It makes sense that if a complex product has;a large number of parts, it will take longer to assemble than a simple product;with fewer parts.;Material costs increase as the number of;units produced increases.;A company is charged 40 cents for each;brochure printed and mailed.;Utility costs increase at the same time that;insurance costs increase.;Question 6.

Question;(TCO 4) Sunk costs;are relevant.;are differential.;are ignored when evaluating alternatives.;have future implications.;(TCO 1) For each of the following drivers identify an;appropriate activity.;a. # of machines;b. # of setups;c. # of inspections;d. # of orders;e. # of runs;f. # of bins or;aisles;g. # of engineers;Question 2. Question;(TCO 2) Lubriderm Corporation;has the following budgeted sales for the next six-month period;Month Unit Sales;June 90,000;July 120,000;August 210,000;September 150,000;October 180,000;November 120,000;There were 30,000 units of finished goods in inventory at;the beginning of June. Plans are to have;an inventory of finished products that equal 20% of the unit sales for the next;month.;Five pounds of materials are required for each unit;produced. Each pound of material costs;$8. Inventory levels for materials are;equal to 30% of the needs for the next month.;Materials inventory on June 1 was 15,000 pounds.;Prepare production budgets in units for July, August, and;September.;Question 3. Question;(TCO 3) Patrick Ross, the;president of Ross's Wild Game Company, has asked for information about the cost;behavior of manufacturing overhead costs.;Specifically, he wants to know how much overhead cost is fixed and how;much is variable. The following data are;the only records available;Month;Machine-hours Overhead;Costs;February;1,700;$20,500;March;2,800;22,250;April 1,000 19,950;May;2,500;21,500;June;3,500 23,950;Using the high-low method, determine the overhead cost;equation. Use machine-hours as your cost;driver.;Question 4. Question;(TCO 5) Collier Bicycles has;been manufacturing its own wheels for its bikes. The company is operating at 100% capacity;and variable manufacturing overhead is charged to production at the rate of 30%;of direct labor cost. The direct materials;and direct labor cost per unit to make the wheels are $1.50 and $1.80;respectively. Normal production is;200,000 wheels per year.;A supplier offers to make the wheels at a price of $4;each. If the bicycle company accepts;this offer, all variable manufacturing costs will be eliminated, but the;$42,000 of fixed manufacturing overhead being charged to the wheels will have;to be absorbed by other products.;a. Prepare an;incremental analysis for the decision to make or buy the wheels.;b. Should Collier;Bicycles buy the wheels from the outside supplier? Justify your answer.
