Its estimated costs, by quarter, for the coming connect.mcgraw-hill.com/connect/hmEBook.do?setTab=sectionTabs 6/13 2/1/12 McGraw-Hill's Connect - Ebook year are given below: Management finds the variation in quarterly unit product costs to be confusing difficult and to work with. It has been suggested that the problem lies with manufacturing overhead because it is the largest element of total manufacturing cost. Accordingly, you have been asked to find a more appropriate way of assigning manufacturing overhead cost to units of product. Required: 1. Using the high-low method, estimate the fixed manufacturing overhead cost per quarter and the variable manufacturing overhead cost per unit. Create a cost formula to estimate the total manufacturing overhead cost for the fourth quarter. Compute the total manufacturing cost and unit product cost for the fourth quarter. 2. What is causing the estimated unit product cost to fluctuate from one quarter to the next? 3. How would you recommend stabilizing the company's unit product cost? Support your answer with computations that adapt the cost formula you created in requirement 1. EXERCISE 3-15 Departmental Overhead Rates [LO1, L O2, L O3] Diewold Company has two departments, Milling and Assembly. The company uses a job-order costing system and computes a predetermined overhead rate in each department.

The job cost sheet for Job 407, which was started and completed during the year, showed the following: Compute the total manufacturing cost assigned to Job 407. p. 119 3. Would you expect substantially different amounts of overhead cost to be charged to some jobs if the company used a plantwide overhead rate based on direct labor-hours instead of using departmental rates? Explain. No computations are necessary. EXERCISE 3-16 Applying Overhead; Journal Entries; Disposition of Underapplied or Overapplied Overhead [LO4, L O5, L O7] The following information is taken from the accounts of FasGrow Company. The entries in the Taccounts are summaries of the transactions that affected those accounts during the year. The overhead that had been applied to production during the year is distributed among the ending balances in the accounts as follows: For example, of the \$80,000 ending balance in Work in Process, \$32,800 was overhead that had been applied during the year. Required: connect.mcgraw-hill.com/connect/hmEBook.do?setTab=sectionTabs 8/13 2/1/12 McGraw-Hill's Connect - Ebook 1. Identify the reasons for entries (a) through (d). 2. Assume that the company closes any balance in the Manufacturing Overhead account directly to Cost of Goods Sold. Prepare the necessary journal entry. 3. Assume instead that the company allocates any balance in the Manufacturing Overhead account to the other accounts in proportion to the overhead applied during the year that is in the ending balance in each account. Prepare the necessary journal entry, with supporting computations. EXERCISE 3-17 Applying Overhead; T-Accounts; Journal Entries [LO1, L O2, LO4, L O5, L O7] Medusa Products uses a job-order costing system. Overhead costs are applied to jobs on the basis of machine-hours.

What managerial insights are revealed by the computations that you performed in this problem? (Hint: Do the cost of goods sold amounts that you computed in requirements 1 and 2 differ from one another? Do the bid prices that you computed in requirements 1 and 2 differ from one another? Why?) EXERCISE 3-19 Applying Overhead; Journal Entries; T-Accounts [LO1, L O2, L O3, L O4, LO5] Custom Metal Works produces castings and other metal parts to customer specifications. The company uses a job-order costing system and applies overhead costs to jobs on the basis of machine-hours. At the beginning of the year, the company used a cost formula to estimate that it would incur \$4,320,000 in manufacturing overhead cost at an activity level of 576,000 machinehours. T he company had no work in process at the beginning of the year. The company spent the entire month of January working on one large orderJob 382, which was an order for 8,000 machined parts.

EXERCISE 3-20 Applying Overhead in a Service Company [LO1, L O2, L O3] connect.mcgraw-hill.com/connect/hmEBook.do?setTab=sectionTabs 11/13 2/1/12 McGraw-Hill's Connect - Ebook Pearson Architectural Design began operations on January 2. The following activity was recorded in the company's Work in Process account for the first month of operations: Pearson Architectural Design is a service firm, so the names of the accounts it uses are different from the names used in manufacturing companies. Costs of Subcontracted Work is comparable to Direct Materials; Direct Staff Costs is the same as Direct Labor; Studio Overhead is the same as Manufacturing Overhead; and Completed Projects is the same as Finished Goods. Apart from the difference in terms, the accounting methods used by the company are identical to the methods used by manufacturing companies. Pearson Architectural Design uses a job-order costing system and applies studio overhead to Work in Process on the basis of direct staff costs. At the end of January, only one job was still in process. This job (the Krimmer Corporation Headquarters project) had been charged with \$13,500 in direct staff costs. p. 122 Required: 1. Compute the predetermined overhead rate that was in use during January. 2.
