What is the activity based cost for this problem?
Eastvaco, Inc. Activity Based Costing and Management Sue, the corporate controller, has, thus, far been impressed with your performance at the Charlotte plant. She thinks it is time for the Company to move forward with a more precise costing system. She meets with you to discuss if you are able to implement Activity Based Costing at Charlotte. Being on the fast-track, you are eager to demonstrate that you should be the successor to Sue and agreed to pilot ABC at Charlotte. You have gathered the following interim data for envelopes and cups. Total production overhead $5,017,500 Envelopes Cups Direct costs $8,250,000 $8,750,000 Units produced 1,500,000 350,000 Machine hours 200,000 50,000 Direct labor hours 34,500 153,625 Number of quality inspections 1,000 6,500 Revenue generated by the two products $15,000,000 $16,800,000 You have determined, using ABC, that overhead can be assigned to separate cost pools specifically: Pool 1 = $1,260,000 using machine hours as the cost driver Pool 2 = $2,257,500 using direct labor hours as the cost driver Pool 3 = $1,500,000 using the number of quality inspections as the cost driver Historically, Charlotte has used a single plant-wide rate , machine hours for the allocation of overhead. Required: 1. Provide at least 3 possible non-value added activities that the Charlotte facility may be experiencing? 2. Using the old plant-wide rate calculate gross profit. 3. Using the new cost pools and cost drivers ( departmental rate ) calculate gross profit. Capstone Publishing, LLC
