Required: A. Compute the pool rates that would be used for order processing, machine processing, and product inspection in an activity-based costing system. B. Assuming use of activity-based costing, compute the unit manufacturing costs of Regular and Deluxe if the expected manufacturing volume is attained. C. How much overhead would be applied to a unit of Regular and Deluxe if the company used traditional costing and applied overhead solely on the basis of direct labor hours? Which of the two products would be undercosted by this procedure? Overcosted? 28. The following monthly data are available for the Challenger Company and its only product, Product SW: Required: a.
