Logan Products computes its predetermined overhead rate annually on the basis of direct labor hours. At the beginning of the year, it estimated that 40,000 direct labor-hours would be required for the period’s estimated level of production. The company also estimated $466,000 of fixed manufacturing overhead expenses for the coming period and variable manufacturing overhead of $3.00 per direct labor-hour. Logan’s actual manufacturing overhead for the year was $713,400 and its actual total direct labor was 41,000 hours.
Compute the predetermined overhead rate for the year:
Y = a + bx
Y = $466,000 + ($3.00 x 40,000)
Y = $466,000 + $120,000
Y = $586,000 estimated manufacturing overhead
Predetermined overhead rate = estimated manufacturing overhead / estimated allocation base
POR = $586,000 / 40,000
POR = $14.65 per direct labor-hour
Westan Corporation uses a predetermined overhead rate of $23.10 per direct labor-hour. This predetermined rate was based on a cost formula that estimated $277,200 of total manufacturing overhead for an estimated activity level of 12,000 direct labor-hours.
The company incurred actual total manufacturing overhead costs of $266,000 and 12,600 total direct labor-hours during the period.
Determine the amount of manufacturing overhead that would have been applied to all jobs during the period:
Manufacturing overhead applied = Predetermined overhead x Actual direct labor-hours
Manufacturing overhead applied = $23.10 x 12,600
Manufacturing overhead applied = $291,060
Weaver Company's predetermined overhead rate is $18.00 per direct labor-hour and its direct labor wage rate is $12.00 per hour. The following information pertains to job A-200:
Direct materials……………… $200
Direct labor……………………. $120
1. What is the total manufacturing cost assigned to job A-200?
Total manufacturing cost = Direct materials + Direct labor +...
