Problem 5 - Materials and Labor Manufacturing Variances and Analysis
Background :&quot;
The following information is for the standard
and actual costs for Happy Corporation
Standard Costs :&quot;
Budgeted units of production - 16000
Standard labor hours per unit - 4 hours
Standard labor rate - \$ 26 per hour
Standard material per unit - 8 pounds
Standard material cost - \$12 per pound
Actual Costs :&quot;
Actual production - 16 , 500 units*
Actual materials purchased and used
- 130000 pounds
Actual total material cost = \$1 , 600 , 000
Actual labor - 65 , 000 hours
Actual total labor costs - \$1 , 700 , 000
Part 1 - Calculate all Materials and Labor Variances
Mark all variances as FAVORABLE or UNFAVORABLE .
Part 2 - Analyze all variances and share possible
theories as to why each variance turned out the way
it did . Then , share your analysis and conclusion
for how all materials and labor variances could fit
together .
