Nowwe have everything we need to calculate the direct materials price variance.
Calculate the variance and enter it in the box below. Note: Enter the variance amount as a positive
number. Variance = +i'— $ X Actually, the variance is —‘l .000. Just subtract the
standard price (‘12) from the actual price (11.67) and
multiply bythe actual quantity purchased (3,000]. The last step is deciding whetherthis variance is
favorable or unfavorable. A good wayto think about
the diﬁerence is this: Avariance is favorable ifthe
result is goodforthe company and unfavorable ifit
is badforthe company. It is generally a good ideato ignore whether the
variance is positive or negative and insteadjust
focus on whetherthe variance is goodforthe

favorable or unfavorable to Quality Curtains. Favorable Unfavorable \/ Great! The company paid less per unitthan was
expected during the budgeting process, so this is a
favorable variance. So now we knowthat Quality Curtains has a
favorable direct materials price variance of $1,000.
This is because the direct materials purchased
cost less than the company expectedthem to.
Some possible causes ofthis favorable variance
are: 1] The managerin charge ofpurchasing skillfully
negotiatedalower price. 2) The company bought lower—quality direct
materials. 3] The company boughtthe direct materials in bulk,
so they received a discount. 4] The marketforthe materials is over—supplied, I driving down prices. l :r::T'..::;5' .1 Done 9 Internet  Protected Mode: On {a V 611.00% V .  _ . Eh I a Q n I a  I I I .

expectedforthis level of production. So now we knowthatuuality Curtains has an
unfavorable direct materials quantity variance of $2,400.
This is because the company used more direct
materials than the budget calledforto produce 700

waste. 2] Poorly trained direct labor leadto more scrap or

measures the eiTect ofthe diﬁerence between
the allocation rate the company budgeted and
the allocation rate the companywould have
budgeted hadthey known the actual number of
labor hours, so we use this equation: Actual Allocation Units * (Actual Rate — Standard
Rate] The ﬁrst step is deciding how many actual
allocation units the company used during the
period. Because Fancy Cheese Dip uses
machine hours to applyvariable overhead, the
allocation unit is machine hours. Enterthe actual machine hours used during the
