-Final Exam scheduled for May 22 nd (Saturday night) will be moved. Date TBA Just-in-time Method -Total Quality Management: *The goal is zero defects. *Results in companies reducing the number of company’s materials, products, etc. are bought from. *Move things to one cell (A/B/C) Backflush Costing: -Method for dealing with JIT in accounting. -Summary of journal entries. Fixed and Variable Costs: -constant rate per unit of activity (cost driver) -allows us to predict future costs Example Problem: 15,000 MH 20,000 MH Cost A) $60,000 $80,000 60,000/15,000=$4 80,000/20,000=$4 *Proved it’s a variable cost. Cost B) $90,000 $90,000 90,000/15,000=$6 90,000/20,000=$4.50 *Proved it’s a fixed cost. Cost C) $45,000 $50,000 45,000/15,000=$3 50,000/20,000=$2.50 *Proved it’s a mixed cost. Scatter Graph: -Activity (cost driver) is on the x-axis. -Cost is on the y-axis. -Shows graphically if the cost driver used is a good cost driver. High-Low Method -Objective method; should get the same answer as every other student/professor.

Unformatted text preview: -Use white handout (given in class) for class example.-The method defines its own relevant range.-DM are always variable costs.-DL is usually a variable cost, but not always.-OH is a mixed cost. *The most theoretically correct method is the Least Squares Regression, but not responsible for it. ~Responsible for only high-low method, scatter graphs, and accounting analysis. Learning Curves:-get better (faster) the more times it is done.-always a new situation and repetitive tasks by humans.-Next topic covered will be cumulative average.-Take home quiz handed out today will be due on Monday. White Handout Example Problem (High-Low Method) MH OH Cost High 3900 39,500 Low 3000 35,000 Change 900 hours $4500 Change in Dependent Variable = $4500 = $5 per hour Change in Independent. Variable 900 High: Total Cost 39,500 VC (3900*5) (19,500) FC $20,000 Y=a+bx Total Cost=FC+VC Y= $20,000+5x...
