Midterm 2. Name_______________________________________________________ 1. Budgeted manufacturing overhead costs include all types of factory expenses EXCEPT: A) depreciation of manufacturing machinery B) electric bill for the plant C) plant supervisor’s salary D) assembly workers’ wages D: assembly workers’ wages is direct labor, the rest of the items are manufacturing overhead since they don’t fit in DL or DM. 2. Research and development costs are an example of: A. unit-level costs B. batch-level costs C. product-sustaining costs D. facility-sustaining costs C: product-sustaining costs – we have to incur R&D costs for each product we’re offering, regardless of the number of units made and regardless of the number of production batches. 3. A favorable variance indicates that: A) actual costs exceed budgeted costs B) budgeted revenues exceed actual revenues C) the actual amount increased operating income relative to the budgeted amount D) all of these answers are correct. C: anything that increases our operating income relative to the budget is good news, i.e., a favorable variance. Option A is wrong: higher-than-budgeted costs is bad news (unfavorable). Option B is also wrong: budgeted revenue > actual means that actual revenue is less than budgeted, which is bad news. 4. You sell ice cream. An unfavorable sales volume variance could result from: A. a snow storm B. a heat wave C. a well-publicized research finding that ice cream cures cancer D. long-term global warming affecting the competitive landscape in the ice cream industry A: a snow storm will reduce your unit sales (i.e., unfavorable sales volume variance). Options B and C are wrong – they should increase your unit sales (i.e., favorable). Option D is also likely to increase your unit sales: long-term global warming will expand the total size of the ice cream market, which means that sales per firm will most likely increase even if additional firms enter the expanding market. 5.

C) $29,000 D) $48,000 C: first, compute the indirect-cost rates (aka allocation rates): setups: rate = $30,000 / (15+35) = $600 per setup components: rate = $50,000 / (10+15) = $2,000 per component next, overhead costs assigned to the Standard model = $600*15 setups + $2,000*10 components = $29,000. 6.
