Once the 900 direct labor-hours are known for the Laguna Model (June 2007), Anderson can compute the \$187,726 cost figure using normal costing. Anderson can use this information to manage the costs of the Laguna Model job as well as to bid on similar jobs later in the year. In contrast, Anderson has to wait until the December 2007 year-end to compute the \$180,526 cost of the Laguna Model using actual costing.Per DL HrPer DL Hr4-19 Page 126...
