Omaha Company manufactures special electrical equipment and parts.
The company uses a standard
cost system with separate standards established for each product.
The transformer department manufactures a special transformer.
This department measures
production volume in terms of direct labor hours (DL hours) and allocates both variable and fixed
overhead on the basis of direct labor hours.
The standard and budget cost information of a transformer at its DeCatur plant is as follows:
Direct materials (Iron)
5 sheets x \$12 ea.
Direct labor
4 hours x \$27 / hr.
\$120,000
\$
80,000
Units
1,000
Direct material purchase variances are evaluated separately from direct material usage variances.
During October the plant produced 800 transformers.
A work stoppage occurred during labor contract
negotiations causing the department to schedule overtime in an attempt to reach expected production
levels.
The following costs were incurred in October:
Direct Materials:
Iron
Purchased 5,000 sheets at \$12.35/sheet and used 3,900 sheets
Direct Labor:
Wages
\$102,600 @ \$28.50 per hour
Variable
Utilities \$30,000, Indirect labor \$20,000, Maintenance \$ 30,000,
Inspections \$30,000 Supplies \$16,000
Fixed
Lease \$40,000, depreciation \$30,000, taxes and insurance \$18,000
