3-13 Computing Predetermined Overhead  Rates The predetermined overhead rate is computed before the period begins using a four-step process. 1. Estimate the total amount of the allocation base (the denominator) that will be required for next period’s estimated level of production. 2. Estimate the total fixed manufacturing overhead cost for the coming period and the variable manufacturing overhead cost per unit of the allocation base. 3. Use the following equation to estimate the total amount of manufacturing overhead: 4. Compute the predetermined overhead rate. Y = a + bX Where,      Y  = The estimated total manufacturing overhead cost      a  = The estimated total fixed manufacturing overhead cost       b  = The estimated variable manufacturing overhead cost            per unit of the allocation base      X  = The estimated total amount of the allocation base.

    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.
