All of the following are true about low-volume products except;a. they often require more special handling than high-volume products.;b. the overhead costs incurred by low-volume products are often disproportionate to a traditional allocation base.;c. they are frequently responsible for more overhead costs per unit than a high-volume product.;d. direct labor hours is usually a better cost driver for assigning overhead costs to low-volume products.;9. The primary benefit of activity-based costing is that it leads to;a. more cost pools used to assign overhead costs to products.;b. more accurate product costing.;c. enhanced control over overhead costs.;d. better management decisions.;10. All of the following are value-added activities in a manufacturing operation except;a. assembly.;b. engineering design.;c. inspections.;d. machining;11. ABC costing is an approach for allocating;a. direct materials to products.;b. direct labor to products.;c. manufacturing overhead to products.;d. direct materials and direct labor to products.;12. The first step in activity-based costing is to;a. assign overhead costs for each activity cost pool to products.;b. compute the activity-based overhead rate.;c. identify cost drivers that accurately measure each activity's contribution to the finished product.;d. identify and classify the major activities involved in the manufacture of specific products.;Instructions: Using the following data, complete the requirements given below. When you are given amounts to assume as the answers to previous requirements, be careful to use such assumed amounts rather than your answers (in order to minimize carry-through errors).;The Finishing Department of Curtis Corporation reports the following for January 2011;Production: All materials are added at the beginning of the process. Beginning work in process 20,000 units, 60% complete. Units started into production 240,000 units. Ending work in process 10,000 units, 30% complete.;Manufacturing Costs: Beginning work in process, $40,000, comprised of $15,000 of materials and $25,000 of conversion costs. Materials added $160,000, labor and overhead added $465,000.;(a) Required: Compute equivalent units of production for (1) materials and (2) conversion costs.;Materials Conversion;(b) Assume your answers to (a) above were 250,000 units for materials and 245,000 for conversion costs.;Required: Compute the unit costs for the month.;Materials Conversion;(c) Assume your answers to (b) above were $.90 for materials and $2.10 for conversion costs. Required: Determine the costs to be assigned to the 240,000 units transferred out.;(d) Assume the same unit costs as given in (c) above.;Required: Determine the costs assigned to the 10,000 units in ending work in process.;Bright Window Company designs and builds custom windows for luxury homes. Most of the windows are custom made but occasionally the company does mass production on order. Its budgeted manufacturing overhead costs for the year 2011 are as follows;Overhead Cost Pools Amount;Purchasing $ 180,000;Production (cutting, milling, finishing) 400,000;Setting up machines 135,000;Inspecting 160,000;Utilities 300,000;Total budget overhead costs $1,175,000;For the last three years, the company has been charging overhead to products on the basis of machine hours. For the year 2011, 100,000 machine hours are budgeted.;Susan Craft, owner-manager of Bright Window, recently directed her accountant to implement the activity-based costing system she has repeatedly proposed. At Susan's request, the accountant and production foreman identify the following cost drivers and their usage for the previously budgeted overhead cost pools.;Overhead Cost Pools Activity Cost Drivers Total Drivers;Purchasing Number of orders 500;Production (cutting, milling, finishing) Direct labor hours 80,000;Setting up machines Number of setups 1,000;Inspecting Number of inspections 5,000;Utilities Square feet occupied 75,000;During this month, the company received an order for 50 window sets from a housing development contractor. The accountant prepares cost estimates for producing components for 50 window sets so Susan can submit a contract price per window set to the contractor. The following data for the production of 50 window sets is accumulated;Direct materials $120,000;Direct labor $135,000;Machine hours 12,000;Direct labor hours 10,000;Number of purchase orders 50;Number of machine setups 80;Number of inspections 380;Number of square feet occupied 7,000;Instructions;(a) Compute the predetermined overhead rate using traditional costing with machine hours as the basis.;(b) Compute the manufacturing cost per window set under traditional costing.;(c) Compute the manufacturing cost per window set under the proposed activity-based costing.
