5. 4-12. Lim Clothing Company manufactures its own designed and labeled sports attire and sells its products through catalog sales and retail outlets. While Lim has for years used activity-based costing in its manufacturing activities, it has always used traditional costing in assigning its selling costs to its product lines. Selling costs have traditionally been assigned to Lim's product lines at a rate of 70% of direct material costs. Its direct material costs for the month of March for Lim's "high intensity" line of attire are $400,000. The company has decided to extend activity-based costing to its selling costs. Data relating to the "high intensity" line of products for the month of March are as follows.
Activity Cost Pools             Cost    Drivers            Overhead Rate          Number of Cost Drivers Used per Activity
Sales commissions    Dollar sales            $0.05 per dollar sales $930,000
Advertising-TV/Radio     Minutes             $300 per minute 250
Advertising-Newspaper    Column inches              $10 per column inch 2,000
Catalogs Catalogs mailed           $2.50 per catalog 60,000
Cost of catalog sales Catalog orders            $1 per catalog order 9,000
Credit and collection Dollar sales            $0.03 per dollar sales $930,000
1. Compute the selling costs to be assigned to the "high-intensity" line of attire for the month of March: (1) using the traditional product costing system (direct material cost is the cost driver), and (2) using activity-based costing.
2. By what amount does the traditional product costing system undercost or overcost the "high-intensity" product line?
3. Classify each of the activities as value-added or non-value-added.
1. _________________ Selling Costs
a. ______________Traditional
b. ______________ Activity-base costing
2. __________________Under cost and Overcost
3. __________________Value-added or non value-added
a. ________________ TV / Radio advertising

7. E6-3. Stahl Inc. has been manufacturing its own shades for its table lamps. The company is currently operating at 100% of capacity, and variable manufacturing overhead is charged to production at the rate of 70% of direct labor cost. The direct materials and direct labor cost per unit to make the lamp shades are $5 and $6, respectively. Normal production is 30,000 table lamps per year.
A supplier offers to make the lamp shades at a price of $15.50 per unit. If Stahl Inc. accepts the supplier's offer, all variable manufacturing costs will be eliminated, but the $45,000 of fixed manufacturing overhead currently being charged to the lamp shades will have to be absorbed by other products.
1. Prepare the incremental analysis for the decision to make or buy the lamp shades.
2. Should Stahl Inc. buy the lamp shades?
3. Would your answer be different in (b) if the productive capacity released by not making the lamp shades could be used to produce income of $35,000?
