Part 1: Job CostingCrandall Corporation makes portable enclosures for festivals, concerts, and other events.Its products aren’t mass produced—each unit is made to customer specifications. Crandallemploys a normal job costing system. Direct labor at the company is compensated at a rateof $21 per hour; however, employees receive no pay when they aren’t working on jobs. Apredetermined rate based on direct labor-hours is used to assign manufacturing overhead to jobs.In the past two years, the company incurred manufacturing overhead costs (adjusted forprice-level changes using current prices and wage rates) as follows:Year 1Year 2Direct labor-hours worked144,000118,000Manufacturing overhead costs incurred:Indirect labor$4,580,000$5,603,340Employee benefits2,204,0003,134,000Supplies858,0001,367,400Power620,000987,420Heat and light244,000210,870Supervision598,000721,970Depreciation2,370,0002,370,000Property taxes and insurance945,000945,000Total manufacturing overhead costs$12,419,000$15,340,000© PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 COST ACCOUNTING PAGE 2Graded ProjectAt the start of Year 3, Crandall has two jobs not yet delivered to customers. Job AT-360 was completed on December 15, Year 2. It’s scheduled to ship out on January 21, Year 3. Job AT-365 is still in progress. The predetermined rate in Year 2 was $155 per direct labor-hour.Data on direct material costs and direct labor-hours for these jobs in Year 2 was as follows:During Year 3, Crandall incurred direct material costs and direct labor-hours for all jobsworked in Year 3, including the completion of Job AT-365, as follows:To compute the predetermined overhead rate, Crandall uses the previous year’s actual over-head rate. At the end of Year 3, three jobs had not been shipped. Data on these jobs is asfollows:What was the amount in the beginning Finished Goods and beginning Work-in-Process accounts for Year 3?Crandall incurred direct materials costs of $210,000 and used an additional 800hours in Year 3 to complete Job AT-365. What was the final (total) cost charged to Job AT-365?What was the overapplied or underapplied overhead for Year 3?Crandall prorates any overapplied or underapplied overhead to Cost of Goods Sold, Finished Goods Inventory, and Work-in-Process Inventory. Prepare a |properly formatted journal entry to prorate the Overapplied or UnderappliedOverhead calculated in requirement. As an allocation basis, use the direct laborhours in each account from Year 3.A customer requested that Crandall bid on a job to be finished in Year 4. Crandallhas estimated that the job will need approximately $156,000 in direct materials and 8,000 direct labor-hours. Due to the condition of the economy, Crandall believes demand for its services will be below average in Year 4, and the CEO thereforewould like to bid aggressively, but doesn’t want to lose money on the project.Crandall estimated essentially no sales or administrative costs connected with thisjob. What is the minimum amount the company can bid on the job and not incur a loss? (In order to perform an estimation of the variable portion of overhead, use thehigh-low method.)© PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 COST ACCOUNTING PAGE 3Graded ProjectJob AT-360Job AT-365Direct material costs$680,000$947,000Direct labor-hours4,800 hours6,200 hoursDirect material costs$15,780,000Direct labor-hours150,000Actual manufacturing overhead$18,609,400AT-285AT-288AT-292Direct materials$154,000$224,500$112,400Direct labor-hours2,600 hours3,400 hours7,500 hoursJob statusFinishedFinishedIn progressPart 2: Process CostingIntrepid Industries manufactures sterile parts used in medical equipment. The company uses the weighted-average process costing method to account for production costs. It produces parts in three different departments: Forming, Sterilization, and Assembling. The following information was reported for the Assembling Department for the month of June:Beginning work-in-progress inventory on June 1 had 250,000 units made up of the following:AmountDegree of CompletionPrior department costs transferred in from the Forming Department$387,600100%Costs added by the Steril-ization Department:Direct materials317,200100%Direct labor120,05040%Manufacturing overhead67,10030%$504,350Work in process, June 1$891,950During June, 580,000 units were transferred in from the Forming Department at a cost of $1,870,000. The Assembling Department added the following costs:Assembling finished 480,000 units and transferred them to the Sterilization Department. At June 30, the number of units in ending work-in-progress inventory was 350,000.

Prepare a correctly formatted (including heading) production cost report (seeExhibit 8.12 as a example report) using the FIFO method using the data given in Question A with one exception: the beginning direct materials costs as of June 1listed in work-in-process should be $315,700 instead of $317,200.D. Using data from the FIFO report, write a short report to management addressingthe issues raised in Question B.Part 3: Activity-Based CostingWayfarer Corporation is contemplating changing its cost system to an activity-based costing system and wants to know more about the effects of doing so. The corporation’s cost accountant has identified three overhead cost pools along with the cost drivers associatedwith each pool as follows:The corporation makes three models of kitchen sinks (Deluxe, Premium, and Standard). The plans for production for the next year and the direct costs that have been budgeted for activity by product are listed below:Cost PoolsCostsActivity DriversUtilities$5,420,000180,000 machine hoursDelivery5,420,00010,000 deliveriesAssembly10,940,0002,000,000 pounds of materialProductsDeluxePremiumStandardTotal direct costs (material and labor)$850,000850,000850,000Total machine-hours210,00095,000154,000Total deliveries310620480Total pounds of material1,800,0001,200,0002,600,000Total direct labor-hours12,4008,50018,600Number of units produced18,00012,00024,000The current cost accounting system charges overhead to products on the basis of direct labor-hours.
