*Contains direct materials,     direct labor, and variable manufacturing overhead.

Janet Dunn, who has just been appointed general manager of the Westwood Plant, has been given instructions to “get things under control.” Upon reviewing the plant’s income statement, Ms. Dunn has concluded that the major problem lies in the variable cost of goods sold. She has been provided with the following standard cost per swimming pool:

     

Standard Quantity Standard Price     Standard

Of Hours or Rate Cost

Direct materials……………… 3.4     pounds $2.00 per pound $6.80

Direct labor………………….. 0.3 hour     $7.50 per pound 2.25

Variable manufacturing overhead     0.2 hour $3.00 per pound 0.60

Total standard cost…………….. $9.65 

______ 

Based on machine-hours. 

Ms. Dunn has determined that during June the plant produced 6,000 pools and incurred the following costs:

  1. Purchased 25,400 pounds of materials at a cost of $2.45      per pound.
  2. Used 20,200 pounds of materials in production.      (finished goods and work in process inventories are insignificant and can      be ignored.)
  3. Worked 2,400 direct labor-hours at a cost of $7.20
  4. Incurred variable manufacturing overhead cost totaling      $5,100 for the month. A total of 1,500 machine-hours was recorded.

It is the company’s policy to close all variances to cost of goods sold on a monthly basis.

  4. Variable overhead spending and efficiently variances
