Problem 3:

Activity based costing

Beeline Manufacturing produces two types of industrial ventilation machines: heavy-duty and standard. The allocation basis for overhead costs has always been direct labor hours. For 2014, Beeline compiled the following data for the two products:

                                                                                                       Heavy-duty            Standard

      Sales in units                                                                                    4,000                 45,000

      Sales price per unit                                                                        $12,000.00            $9,900.00

      Direct material and direct labor costs per unit                                     $3,900.00            $3,100.00

      Allocated manufacturing overhead costs per unit                                $1,950.00            $2,350.00

Last year, Beeline purchased an expensive robotics system to allow for more complex products in the heavy-duty line. The CFO suggested that an ABC analysis could be valuable to help evaluate a product mix and promotion strategy for the next sales campaign. She obtained the following ABC information for 2014:

Activity                  Cost Driver                                         Cost          Total Heavy-dutyStandard

Setups                   # setups                                      $     1,200,000       500              410             90

Machine-related       # of machine hours                      $   59,800,000 500,000 250,000250,000

Packing                  # shipments                                $ 104,550,000 255,000 45,000210,000

1. Using the current cost system based on direct labor hours, what is the estimated total cost of manufacturingone unit for each type of ventilation machine?

2. Using the current cost system based on direct labor hours, what is the estimated profit per unit for each type of machine?

3. Using the activity-based costing data presented above, compute the cost driver rate for each overhead activity.

4. Using ABC, compute the revised manufacturing overhead cost per unit for the heavy-duty machine.

5. Compute the revised total cost to manufacture one unit of the heavy-duty machine.

6. Compute the revised profit on one unit of the heavy-duty machine.
