Week 7: Standard Costs Week 7 Skill Building Demonstration Problem 4 Compute the variable manufacturing overhead spending and efficiency variances. Learning Objective 4 This problem uses the same concept following the formulas from the general models as shown below: Variable Overhead spending variance= AH (AR-SR) Overhead spending Efficiency Variance= SR (AH-SH) Definitions Given: Scratch Pants Corporation has the following direct variable manufacturing overhead labor standard for its durable pants: 1.3 standard hours per pants at $5.00 per hour Last month, employees actually worked 2,500 hours to make

Unformatted text preview: 2,000 pants. Actual variable manufacturing overhead for the month was $11,500. Problem Solution: Actual Rate = $11,500/2500= $4.6/hr Standard Rate = 1.3 hrs x 2000 = hours 2600 Spending Variance = 2500($4.6-$5.0) = ($1000) Favorable Efficiency Variance = $5(2500-2600) = ($500) Favorable Significance : Spending variance $1000 favorable means that variable overhead was less than the standard by .40 cents per hour. Efficiency variance of $500 variable means that the level of output required less overhead than the amount of overhead than the standards required. Solution...

    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.
