Darling Company, which applies overhead to production on the basis of machine hours, reported the following data for the period just ended: Actual units produced: 12,000 Actual fixed overhead incurred: $730,000 Actual machine hours worked: 60,000 Budgeted fixed overhead: $720,000 Planned level of machine-hour activity: 50,000 If Darling estimates four hours to manufacture a completed unit, the company's standard fixed overhead rate per machine hour would be: Answer $12.00. $14.40. $14.60. $15.00. some other amount. The budget variance arises from a comparison of: Answer budgeted fixed overhead expenditures with budgeted fixed overhead costs. actual fixed overhead costs with budgeted fixed overhead costs. actual variable overhead expenditures with budgeted variable overhead costs. variable overhead costs with budgeted fixed overhead costs. static-budget amounts with flexible-budget amounts. Smithville uses labor hours to apply variable overhead to production. If the company's workers were very inefficient during the period, which of the following statements would be true about the variable-overhead efficiency variance? Answer The variance would be favorable. The variance would be unfavorable. The nature of the variance (favorable or unfavorable) would be unknown based on the facts presented. The variance would be the same amount as the labor efficiency variance. None of these. The following data relate to product no. 89 of Des Moines Corporation: Direct material standard: 3 square feet at $2.50 per square foot Direct material purchased: 30,000 square feet at $2.60 per square foot Direct material consumed: 29,200 square feet Manufacturing activity: 9,600 units completed Assume that the company computes variances at the earliest point in time. The direct-material price variance is: Answer $2,880U. $2,920F. $2,920U. $3,000F. $3,000U. Taylor Enterprises purchased 56,000 pounds (cost = $420,000) of direct material to be used in the manufacture of the company's sole product. According the production specifications, each completed unit requires five pounds of direct material at a standard cost of $7.80 per pound. Direct materials consumed by the end of the period totaled 53,500 pounds in the manufacture of 10,900 finished units. An examination of Taylor's payroll records revealed that the company worked 22,000 labor hours (cost = $319,000) during the period, and specifications called for each completed unit requiring two hours of labor at a standard cost of $14.80 per hour. Assume that the company computes variances at the earliest point in time. Taylor's direct-material price variance was: Answer $16,050F. $16,050U. $16,800F. $16,800U. None of these. Consider the following statements: I. Behavioral scientists find that perfection standards often discourage employees and result in low worker morale. II.

Lead indicators guide management to: Answer take actions now that will have positive effects on organizational performance now. take actions now that will have positive effects on organizational performance in the future. take actions in the future that will have positive effects on organizational performance now. take actions in the past that will have positive effects on organizational performance in the future. pursue identical strategies as those implemented with lag indicators. Newbill Enterprises recently used 24,000 labor hours to produce 8,600 completed units. According to manufacturing specifications, each unit is anticipated to take 2.75 hours to complete. The company's actual payroll cost amounted to $456,000. If the standard labor cost per hour is $19.20, Newhart's labor rate variance is: Answer $1,920U. $1,920F. $4,800U. $4,800F. None of these. In the calculation of manufacturing cycle efficiency, which of the following activities results in value-added time? Answer Moving. Processing. Inspection. Waiting. All of these.
