Question 1:

Assume a manufacturer incurs 2,000,000 hours of direct productive labor in a year at a total direct labor cost of $50,000,000. The total manufacturing indirect expense for the same period is $67,500,000.

1. What is the average direct labor cost rate?

2. If the overhead were distributed on the basis of direct labor hours, what would the rate be per hour.

3. if the overhead were distributed on the basis of direct labor dollars, what would the percentage rate be. Using the same factors above, assume that we have two projects each requiring 100,000 direct labor hours.

Project A, because of work requirements and personnel assigned, direct labor costs of $2,040,000 or $20.40 per hour, were experienced. Project B, requires a direct labor cost of $2,800,000, or $28.00 per hour.

Question 2:

Calculate the amount of overhead that would be allocated to the two projects on a labor hour and labor dollar basis for Project A &B 2) A cost estimate for a contract, included 3,000 hours of direct labor, the company uses a plant-wide overhead rate. Assume that the projected overhead cost for the coming period are $3,800,000 and projected direct labor amounts to 215,000 hours.

The overhead accounts are Assembly Department- projected overhead costs $1,800,000 and projected direct labor hours is 165,000 Machine Department - projected overhead costs $2,000,000 and projected direct labor hours is 50,000
