STANDARD COSTS homework questions




Question;Ex. 211;Platt Company produces one product, a putter;called PAR-putter. Platt uses a standard cost system and determines that it;should take one hour of direct labor to produce one PAR-putter. The normal;production capacity for this putter is 100,000 units per year. The total;budgeted overhead at normal capacity is $500,000 comprised of $200,000 of;variable costs and $300,000 of fixed costs. Platt applies overhead on the basis;of direct labor hours.;During the current year, Platt produced 85,000;putters, worked 89,000 direct labor hours, and incurred variable overhead costs;of $160,000 and fixed overhead costs of $300,000.;Instructions;(a) Compute the predetermined variable overhead;rate and the predetermined fixed overhead rate.;(b) Compute the applied overhead for Platt for;the year.;(c) Compute the total overhead variance.;Ex. 212;Hector;Company has developed the following standard costs for its product for 2012;HECTOR COMPANY;Standard Cost Card;Product A;Cost Element Standard;Quantity ?

The standards call;for 3 board-feet of wood at $1.40 per board-foot, and 45 minutes of work at $12;per hour per bat. Total manufacturing overhead costs were estimated at $9,450;of which the variable portion was $0.50 per bat and the fixed portion was $1.00;per bat with an estimate of 6,300 bats to be produced. Flagstaff identifies;price variances at the earliest possible point in time.;During March, the company had the following;results;Direct labor used;= 4,800 hours at a cost of $56,400;Actual;manufacturing overhead fixed costs = $6,000;Actual;manufacturing overhead variable costs = $3,100;Bats produced = 6,000;Instructions;Compute the following variances for March.;1.
