3. True and False questions – Mark with X.
Question
True
False
A. Inventory in “finished goods” is the end
of the production process.
B. Units transferred out from a department
will have material, labour and factory overhead in its cost and is considered
material in the next department.
C. Equivalent units of production are the
portion of whole units that are complete with respect to either materials or
conversion (direct labour and factory overhead) costs.
D. Process costing is used for custom
production.
E. Process costing and job costing assign
the same costs.
F. FIFO costing includes beginning inventory
costs in the equivalent per unit cost.
G. If material for 1000 products was added
to Work in Process but conversion costs are 75
% complete at month end, the
equivalent units for allocating conversion costs incurred in the month are A
= 1,000 or B = 750 units. Which is correct?
A
B
H. The Finished Goods in Box D received
\$25,000 of costs (Transferred in). Opening inventory was \$10,000 and ending
inventory was \$5,000. Transferred out must be A = \$25,000 or B = \$30,000.
Which is correct?
A
B
Part 2 – Sample costing flows and pricing for three customers (10 marks)

Customer 1
+ Material
+ Labour
+ Mfg. Overhead
+ Corp Overhead
+ Mark up
= Floating Price
Box D
Customer 4
+ Material
+ Labour
+ Mfg. Overhead
+ Corp Overhead
+ Mark up
= Fixed Price
Box C Actual
Customer 2
+ Material to-date
+ Labour to date
+ Mfg. Overhead
+ Corp Overhead
Costs to date
Box C Forecast
Customer 2
+ Material
+ Labour
+ Mfg. Overhead
+ Corp Overhead
+ Mark up
= Fixed Price
Questions:
1. What type of costing system is illustrated above on this page?
__________________________________________________________________________________
2. What is a potential issue with Customer 2 if the overhead allocation is based on a budget and actual results mean the allocation should have been higher.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________
Question
True
False
A. Factory (Mfg) overhead includes all
manufacturing costs except direct materials and direct labour and is
allocated based on overall direct labour hours worked.
B. Labour in the Customer Boxes above (this
page) are based on specific labour rates and hours worked on the particular
job.
C. Materials are tracked through a
requisition system.
D. Factory overhead applied represents the
actual overhead costs incurred for the particular job. In Box A, this is the
actual Mfg overhead incurred.
E. Material, Labour Costs, and Mfg Overhead
in the Boxes above on this page would be recorded in Cost of Goods Sold when
a sale is realized.
F. A job costing system is not applicable
for a service company.
G. The mark-up (i.e., profit) in the Box D
is 20
% of costs. If the manufacturing costs are \$75,000 and corporate
overhead is \$25,000, the profit to the company is A = \$20,000 or B = \$15,000.
Which is correct?
A
B
H. Labour hours are tracked through a time
ticket system. If the labour component of costs in G just
above unexpectedly increased and manufacturing costs are now \$80,000, the
company would A= increase its profits or B = decrease its profits. Which is
correct?
A
B
3. True and False questions – Mark with X.
Part 3 – Opinion questions
Part 3A – In a job order cost system, briefly state two important policies that would help the company produce customized products as desired by customers and would help the company control costs in setting prices for these products. This is particularly important for fixed price contracts. (4 marks)

2. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Part 3C – Could a company use both the job and process costing methods in building products? Yes or No and Why. (2 marks)
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Part 4 – Calculation Question (10 marks)
Use the worksheet below to assign costs to the inventory transferred out and the ending inventory using the weighted average method. The percentages indicate the amount of work completed.
Part 5 – Calculation Question (10 marks)
Use the worksheet below to assign costs to the inventory transferred out and the ending inventory using the FIFO method. The percentages indicate the amount of work completed.
Part 6 – Activity Based Cost (10 marks)
A company reports the following information about its indirect costs:
1. Total indirect costs of \$3,000,000 for the next year.
2. There two products: Product A and Product B.
3. Direct labour hours for Product A is 40,000 and Product B is 60,000
4. The company’s accountant has suggested an alternative to the traditional allocation of indirect overhead based on direct labour hours. The accountant suggested the following:
a. Indirect costs can be broken down into supervisory wages \$500,000, machine set up \$250,000, machinery operating costs including depreciation \$1,250,000, engineering changes \$500,000, quality inspection costs \$250,000, shipping costs \$250,0000.
b. Activity drivers are supervisory wages (direct labour hours), machine set up (2,500 set up hours), machinery operating (12,500 machine hours), engineering changes (2,500 engineering hours), inspection (2,500 inspection hours), shipping (5,000 shipments)

Questions:

____________________________________________________________
B. Under the Activity Based Accounting (ACB) method, what is the amount of indirect cost allocated to Product A and Product B?
____________________________________________________________
C. Would the ABC method add value to the company, Yes or No and Why or Why Not?
____________________________________________________________
D. The accountant alternatively suggested a “standard costing system” for indirect costs. This would be a set / fixed amount for the year for each unit of Product A or Product B shipped. What is the standard cost per unit for Product A and Product B assuming a traditional cost allocation approach?
