Please make sure you read the academic honesty policy, since I want to make sure everyone realizes that they should not be discussing
this problem outside the discussion board.

Academic Honesty Policy:
Each student is assumed to be a mature and
responsible adult with high academic and moral standards.
There is no
place in the business profession or the classroom for dishonesty.
Therefore, any student found cheating or presenting material in a dishonest
fashion would be dismissed from the course and given a course grade of
You should not exchange files
or discuss turn in problems or take
home exams outside the discussion board
It is unfair to your classmates
to discuss turn-in problems and take home exams via e-mail or to send
files with the solution to any member of the class.
I always have a
discussion thread set up for students to ask questions, so this is the place
you should ask questions on these assignments and exams.
Remember, it
does not matter what type of assignment it is, if you are found cheating you
will receive an F for the course and the College of Business will be
informed of your actions for further proceedings.

Industries Inc. manufactures 2 products: A and B.
A review of the company’s accounting records revealed the following per-unit costs and production volume:
Product A
Product B
Production volume(units)
Direct labor hours used
Direct material cost per unit
Direct Labor cost per unit: $14 per hour
3 hours at $14
4 hours at $14
Manufacturing overhead is budgeted at :
Using direct labor hours as the base for assigning manufacturing overhead cost to products, compute the direct labor hours needed and the
predetermined overhead rate using direct labor hours.
The predetermined overhead rate you compute should be $62, since I have given you the answer but I want to make sure you know how to determine the $62.
Direct labor hours, budget hours
Product A
Product B
Total direct labor hours
per direct labor hour
Using the predetermined overhead rate you determined in “a” above, determine the unit product cost of each product.
Don’t forget that unit product cost includes direct material, direct labor, and Manufacturing overhead. Don’t make this complicated, since the numbers are already there for you.

You are a recent hire to Industries Inc. and you have made it known that you just recently completed an MBA program that had a management accounting
course that taught you about another costing system that might be appropriate.
During a meeting, you suggested that an ABC system might be a more
accurate costing system.
Management has asked you to recompute the unit cost using the ABC costing approach, since the company is showing declining profits.
First complete the following chart that is set up like exhibit 5-7 on page 177, and there is a more detailed explanation of the 3 step calculation approach example
on page 176 exhibit 5-6.
