E12: Labor Variances The easiest way to solve this problem is to use the general model for variance analysis and fill in the missing pieces. AH × AR (Actual hours of input × Actual rate) 110,000 hours × $4.25 = $467,500 AH × SR (Actual hours of input × Standard rate) 110,000 hours × $4.20 = $462,000 SHA × SR (Standard hours allowed for actual output × Standard rate) 100,000 hours × $4.20 = $420,000 Labor rate variance 110,000 hours × ($4.25 – $4.20) = $5,500 U Labor efficiency variance $4.20 × (110,000 hours – 100,000 hours) = $42,000 U

Total direct labor variance: $47,500 U a. Standard labor hours allowed for output (100,000 hours): The standard direct labor hours allowed for output is computed by multiplying units produced (50,000) times standard hours allowed per unit (2). b. Actual labor cost per hour ($4.25 per hour): This is total actual direct labor costs of $467,500 divided by total actual direct labor hours incurred (110,000). c. Actual labor cost per unit ($9.35 per unit): Since 50,000 units were produced, actual direct labor costs per unit are $467,500 divided by 50,000

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
