SOLUTION TO TOPIC 2 TUTORIAL TOPIC: Job Order Costing 3-5 Although manufacturing-overhead costs are not directly traceable to products, manufacturing operations cannot take place without incurring overhead costs. Consequently, overhead costs are applied to products for the purpose of making pricing decisions, in order to ensure that product prices cover all of the costs of production. 3-10 When a single volume-based cost driver is used to apply manufacturing overhead, the managerial accountant's primary objective is to select a cost driver that varies in a pattern similar to the pattern in which manufacturing overhead varies. Moreover, if a single cost driver is used, it should be some productive input that is common to all of the firm's products. 3-19 Overapplied or underapplied overhead is caused by errors in estimating the predetermined overhead rate. These errors can occur in the numerator (budgeted manufacturing overhead), or in the denominator (budgeted level of the cost driver). 3-24 1 .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
