Challenge 2: Job-Order Costing for Customized WorkBased on your advice, High-End Lifts has moved forward and set up the production process to build all of its residential elevators in-house. In the past, High-End Lifts utilized the cost estimates provided by the production company as the basis for quoting prices to its residential customers and did not bear the risk of cost overruns or manufacturing delays. Now that they are manufacturing products, they need a more sophisticated system for estimating costs, bidding on jobs, and tracking actuals against budgeted costs for planning and control purposes. They’ve asked for your help in setting up a system to quote and track the cost of custom jobs that are received for custom projects. You’ve recommended the use of a job order costing system since each job is budgeted and track based on customized specifications. Suggested Preparation: Use the Challenge 2 Workbook (found in "Resources") to complete the definitions related to the job ordering costing. Watch the videos to gain a stronger understanding of the concepts.Task 1:Calculate a predetermined overhead application rate using budgeted direct-labor hours as the cost driver. High-End Lifts uses a volume-based, plant-wide approach to allocating overhead. They use direct-labor hours as the cost driver for determining the budgeted rate. Task 2:High-End Lifts received a request for proposal (RFP #240A) from Top Quality Builders, Inc. to manufacturer 6 custom-sized elevators for a small condominium project in Lake Bonaventure, NY for delivery on 10-1-18 (installation is not required). High-End Lifts has the in-house capacity to complete the job without incurring additional overhead costs. Required:1) Determine the price and bid the job as specified in the RFP #240A. The RFP has specified that the bid include the cost of delivering the units to the construction site. High-End Lifts, Inc. has estimated that the delivery expense for the six elevators including insurance while in transit, is $1,500. This amount will be figured into the total cost of the bid, after accounting for the mark-up on cost. High-End Lifts, Inc. is aware that one of its competitiors is also bidding on the job. To compete, High-End Lifts wants to price the job at 40% gross margin rather than their standard 50% on the regular product line-up. Standard limited warranty on all High-End elevators is 5 years, parts and labor related to all power and hydraulic lift components.These elevators are slightly larger than the residential elevators they normally build and based on their estimates, these units will require 10% more in direct materials and 15% more in direct labor hours than their standard elevators.
