2. Objectives 5. Calculate the variable and fixed overhead variances, and give their definitions. 6. Appendix: Prepare journal entries for materials and labor variances, and show how to account for overhead variances.

3. Why Standard Cost Systems Are Adopted • Standard costing systems enhance planning and control and improve performance measurement. • Standard costing systems facilitate product costing.

4. Cost Assignment Approaches • Direct Direct • MaterialsLaborOverhead • Actual costing system Actual Actual Actual • Normal costing system Actual Actual Budgeted • Standard costing system Standard Standard Standard Manufacturing Costs

Standard Cost Sheet for Corn Chips Standard Standard Standard Price Usage Cost Subtotal Description Direct materials \$0.223 Direct labor: Inspectors \$7.000 0.0070 hr. \$0.049 Machine operators 10.000 0.0008 hr. 0.008 Total direct labor 0.057 Overhead: Variable overhead 3.850 0.078 hr. \$0.030 Fixed overhead 32.050 0.0078 hr. 0.250 Total overhead 0.280 Total standard unit cost\$0.560

7. During the first week of March, 100,000 packages of corn chips are produced. The standard quantity of yellow corn meal per package is 18 ounces.

8. Standard Quantity of Materials Allowed SQ = Unit quantity standard x Actual output = 18 x 100,000 = 1,800,000 ounces Standard Hours Allowed SH = Unit labor standard x Actual output = 0.0008 x 100,000 = 80 direct labor hours

9. Total variance = Price variance +Usage variance = (AP – SP)AQ +(AQ – SQ)SP = [(AP x AQ) – (SP x AQ)] +[(SP x AQ) – (SP x SQ)] = (AP x AQ) – (SP x AQ)] +(SP x AQ) – (SP x SQ) = (AP x AQ) – (SP x SQ)

10. 1. AP x AQ (Actual Quantity of Input at Actual Price) 2. SP x AQ (Actual Quantity of Input at Standard Price) 3. SP x SQ (Standard Quantity of Input at Standard Price) Price Variance (1-2) Usage Variance (2-3) Budget Variance (1-3) Variance Analysis: General Description

11. Unfavorable variances occur whenever actual prices or usage of inputs are greater than standard prices or usage. Favorable variances occur whenever the opposite occurs.

Actual Costs Budgeted Costs Total Variance Corn \$5,382.00 \$5,238.00 \$144.00 U Inspection labor 2,646.00 2,376.50 269.50 U Variance Analysis: Materials and Labor Actual production 48,500 bags of corn chips Actual cost of corn 780,000 ounces of \$0.0069 = \$5,382 Actual cost of inspection labor 360 hours at \$7.35 = \$2,646

14. AQ x AP 780,000 x 0.0069 \$5,382 AQ x SP 780,000 x \$.0.0060 \$4,680 SQ x SP 873,000 x \$0.0060 \$5,238 \$702 U Price Variance \$558 F Usage Variance \$144 U Total Variance Variance Analysis: Columnar Approach

15. Material Price Variance MPV = (AP – SP)AQ The actual price per unit The standard price per unit The actual quantity of material used

16. Material Price Variance MPV = (AP – SP)AQ = (\$0.0069 – \$0.0060)780,000 = \$0.0009 x 780,000 = \$702 U Percent of SP x AQ = \$702/\$4,680 = 15%

17. Direct Materials Usage Variance MUV = (AQ – SQ)SP The actual quantity of materials used The standard quantity of materials allowed for the actual output The standard price per unit

18. Direct Materials Usage Variance MUV = (AQ – SQ)SP = (780,000 – 873,000)(\$0.006) = 93,000 x \$0.006 = \$558 F Percent of SQ x SP = \$558/\$5,238 = 10.7%

19. Labor Rate Variances LRV = (AR – SR)AH The actual hourly wage rate The standard hourly wage rate The actual direct labor hours used

20. Labor Rate Variances LRV = (AR – SR)AH = (\$7.35 – \$7.00)360 = \$0.35 x 360 = \$126 U Percent of SR x AH = \$126/\$2,520 = 5%

21. AH x SR 360 x \$7.00 \$2,520 AH x AR 360 x \$735 \$2,646 SH x SR 339.5 x \$7.00 \$2,376.50 \$126 U Rate Variance \$143.50 U Efficiency Variance \$269.50 U Total Variance Labor Variances: Columnar Approach

22. Labor Efficiency Variances LEV = (AH – SH) SR The actual direct labor hours used The standard direct labor hours that should have been used The standard hourly wage rate

23. Labor Efficiency Variances LEV = (AH – SH)SR = (360 – 339.5)\$7 = 20.5 x \$7 = \$143.50 U Percent of SH x SR = \$143.50/\$2,376.50 = 6%

24. Variable Overhead Variances Variable overhead rate (standard) \$3.85/DLH Actual variable overhead costs \$1,600 Actual hours worked 400 Bags of chips produced 48,500 Hours allowed for production 378.3 Applied variable overhead \$1,456
