Accounting 212 10 2 Why is Standard Costing Used? A standard is a preestablished benchmark for desirable performance. A standard cost system is one in which a company sets cost standards and then uses them to evaluate actual performance. A variance is the difference between actual performance and the standard. Accounting 212 10 3 Learning Objective 2 Explain the concept of management by exception. Accounting 212 10 4 Management by Exception Management by exception is the process where managers focus their attention on those areas where actual performance deviates from standards. Accounting 212 10 5 Quantity and Price Standards Quantity used Price paid Accounting 212 10 6 Learning Objective 3 Contrast ideal and practical standards. Accounting 212 10 7 Ideal versus Practical Standards A standard that allows for no inefficiencies of any kind is an ideal standard. A standard that allows for the normal inefficiencies of production is called a practical standard. Accounting 212 10 8 The Standard Costing Process Gather information and set standards. Compare actual performance to standard and prepare performance reports. Determine which variances to investigate. Accounting 212 Investigate the cause of variances. Determine if corrective action is needed. Take corrective action. 10 9 Learning Objective 4 Identify and discuss the weaknesses of standard costing. 10 10 Accounting 212 Problems With Standard Costing Employees may try to set low standards to make them easier to achieve. Using historical data to set standards may build in past inefficiencies. Managers might focus on the "numbers" to the exclusion of other important factors. Accounting 212 10 11 Problems With Standard Costing Focus on unfavorable variances may result in ignoring the favorable variances. Managers may lose sight of the big picture. Accounting 212 10 12 Learning Objective 5 Compare standard costing, actual costing, and normal costing. 10 13 Accounting 212 Comparison of Cost Systems Cost classification Direct material Direct labor Manufacturing overhead Accounting 212 Actual cost system Actual Actual Actual Normal cost system Actual Actual Standard cost system Estimated Estimated Estimated Estimated 10 14 Learning Objective 6 Determine standards for a manufacturing company. 10 15 Accounting 212 Basic Standard Costing for a Manufacturer Direct materials quantity standard Direct materials price standard Direct labor efficiency standard Direct labor rate standard Standard variable manufacturing overhead rate Standard fixed manufacturing overhead rate Accounting 212 10 16 Standard Cost Example TREE TOP MAIL BOX COMPANY Income Statement For the Month Ended October 31, 2004 Sales (300 mail boxes @ $10 each) Less expenses: Direct material Direct labor (180 hours @ $10/hour) Rent Utilities (all variable) Miscellaneous variable cost Equipment depreciation Net income Accounting 212 $3,000 $ 600 1,800 200 40 30 25 2,695 $ 305 10 17 Direct Material Standards The direct materials standards are as follows: 21.6 SQ (standard quantity: board feet per unit) $0.0875 SP (standard price per foot of wood) What is the standard direct material cost per unit? 21.6 SQ $0.0875 SP = $1.89 per unit Accounting 212 10 18 Direct Labor Standards The direct labor standards are as follows: 0.6 SH (standard hours allowed per unit) $10.00 SR (standard rate per hour of labor What is the standard direct labor cost per unit? 0.6 SH $10.00 SR = $6.00 per unit 10 19 Accounting 212 Variable Overhead Standards The standard variable OH rate is: $63 monthly 180 labor hours = $0.35/hour What is the expected variable overhead cost per unit? 0.6 SH $0.35 SR = $0.21 per unit Accounting 212 10 20 Fixed Overhead Standards The Tree Top Mail Box Company has a budgeted monthly fixed overhead cost of $225. The standard fixed OH rate is: $225 monthly 180 labor hours = $1.25/hr. What is the expected fixed overhead cost per unit? 0.6 SH $1.25 SR = $0.75 per unit Accounting 212 10 21 Total Standard Cost per Unit Direct material: 21.6 $.0875 = $1.89 Direct labor: 0.6 $10.00 = 6.00 Variable overhead: 0.6 $ 0.35 = .21 Fixed overhead: 0.6 $ 1.25 = .75 Total standard cost per mail box $8.85 Accounting 212 10 22 Learning Objective 7 Calculate standard cost variances for direct material, direct labor, variable manufacturing overhead, and fixed manufacturing overhead. Accounting 212 10 23 Variance Analysis TREE TOP MAIL BOX COMPANY Income Statement For the Month Ended November 30, 2004 Sales (225 mail boxes @ $10 each) Less expenses: Direct material (6,000 feet of week) Direct labor (162 hrs. @ $10.50/hr.) Rent Utilities (all variable) Miscellaneous variable cost Equipment depreciation Net income Accounting 212 $2,250 $ 477 1,701 200 50 90 25 2,543 $ (293) 10 24 Direct Materials Variances There are two variances calculated for direct materials. The direct materials quantity variance (also called the usage variance) is a measure of the amount of materials used. The direct materials price variance is a measure of the cost to buy the various materials that were purchased. Accounting 212 10 25 Material Quantity Variance Standard Number Standard quantity quantity of units = of direct material per unit produced allowed 21.60 feet 225 units = Standard quantity allowed Actual quantity used = 4,860 feet Quantity variance in feet 4,860 feet 6,000 feet = 1,140 unfavorable Accounting 212 10 26 Material Quantity Variance Quantity Standard Quantity variance price of = variance in feet direct material in dollars 1,140 U $0.0875 = $99.75 U Accounting 212 10 27 Material Price Variance Actual quantity purchased 6,000 feet Material standard price $0.0875 Standard cost of = direct material purchased = $525 Direct material price variance Standard cost of Actual cost of direct material direct material = purchased purchased $525 Accounting 212 $477 = $48 Favorable 10 28 Direct Labor Variances The direct labor efficiency variance is the difference between actual hours worked and the standard hours allowed, valued at the standard rate of labor. The direct labor rate variance is the difference between the actual direct labor cost incurred and the standard cost for the actual hours worked. Accounting 212 10 29 Direct Labor Efficiency Variance Standard Number Standard hours hours allowed of units = of direct labor per unit produced allowed 0.6 hours 225 Actual hours worked = = 135 hours Efficiency variance in hours 27 hours U 10 30 Standard hours of direct labor allowed 135 hours Accounting 212 162 hours = Direct Labor Efficiency Variance Efficiency variance in hours 27 hours Direct labor Standard efficiency rate of = variance direct labor in dollars $10/hour = $270 U Accounting 212 10 31 Direct Labor Rate Variance Actual direct labor hours 162 hours Standard cost of actual labor hours worked $1,620 Accounting 212 Direct labor standard = rate Standard cost of actual labor hours worked $1,620 Direct labor rate variance $81 U 10 32 $10/hour = Actual direct labor = cost $1,701 = Overhead Variances Variable overhead efficiency variance Variable overhead spending variance Fixed overhead budget variance Fixed overhead volume variance Accounting 212 10 33 Variable Overhead Efficiency Variance Efficiency variance in hours 27 hours Variable OH Standard efficiency rate of = variance variable OH in dollars $0.35/hour = $9.45 U Accounting 212 10 34 Variable Overhead Spending Variance Actual direct labor hours 162 hours Standard cost of variable OH for actual labor hours worked $56.70 Accounting 212 Variable OH standard = rate Standard cost of variable OH for actual labor hours worked $56.70 Variable OH spending variance $83.30 U 10 35 $0.35/hour = Actual variable OH cost $140 = = Fixed Overhead Budget Variance Actual fixed OH cost $225 Budgeted fixed OH cost $225 = Fixed OH budget variance $0 = Accounting 212 10 36 Fixed Overhead Volume Variance Plant capacity 300 units Under or over production in units 75 units under Standard hours of under/over 45 hours Accounting 212 Actual units produced 225 units Efficiency standard 0.6 hours/unit Standard fixed overhead rate $1.25/hour = = = = = = Under or over production in units 75 units under Standard hours of under/over 45 hours Fixed overhead volume variance $56.25 U 10 37 Fixed Overhead Standards Standard Number Standard hours hours allowed of units = of direct labor per unit produced allowed 0.6 hours 225 = 135 hours The standard fixed OH rate is: $225 monthly 180 labor hours = $1.25/hr. Fixed OH applied is: 135 hours $1.25/hr = $168.75 Accounting 212 10 38 Fixed Overhead Variances Actual fixed OH cost $225 Budgeted fixed OH cost $225 Applied FO $0 $168.75 $56.25 Accounting 212 10 39 Learning Objective 8 Describe the meaning of standard cost variances for direct material, direct labor, variable manufacturing overhead, and fixed manufacturing overhead. Accounting 212 10 40 Using Standard Cost Variances A performance report should be prepared on a periodic basis for the managers who are responsible for the standard cost variances. The management by exception concept would then be used by the managers to focus their attention on the most significant cost variances.
