5/31 Labor                                      3,370     


5/31 Overhead                                1,840


5/31 Balance                                           ?


Production record shows that there were 580 units in the beginning inventory, 30% complete, 1,600 units started, and 1530 units transferred out.  The beginning work in process had materials cost of $3,140 and conversion costs of $1,650.  The units in ending inventory were 40% complete.  Materials are entered at the beginning of the painting process.


a)  How many units are in process at May 31?


b)  What is the material cost for May?


c)  What is the unit conversion cost for May?


d)  What is the Total cost of units transferred out in May?

3.  Exercise 17-1


Wilkins Inc. has two types of handbags:  standard and custom.  The controller has decided to use a plantwide overhead rate based on direct labor costs.   The president has heard of activity-based costing and wants to see how the results would differ if this system were used.  Two activity cost pools were developed:  machining and machine set-up.  Presented below is information related to the company’s operations.


                                                            Standard                                 Custom          


Direct labor costs                                $45,000                                   $97,500


Machine hours                                         1,430                                     1,350


Setup hours                                                    98                                                    390




Total estimated overhead cost are $307,700.  Overhead cost allocated to the machining activity cost pool is $196,600, and $111,100 is allocated to the machine setup pool.


  1. Compute the overhead rate using the traditional (Plantwide) approach? (Round answers to 2 decimal places, e.g. 12.25)

  2. Predetermined overhead rate % of Direct Labor cost?

  3. Overhead allocated to Machining activity cost pool?

  4. Compute the Overhead rates using the activity-based costing approach. (Round answers to 2 decimals places, e.g. $12.25.)

    Machining —————?                                  Setup—————-?

  5. Determine the difference in allocation between the two approaches:

  6. Traditional costing:  Standard:————–?    Custom:—————?

    Activity-based-costing:  Standard: ————–?         Custom:—————-?
