Cost Accounting: Kristopher Manufacturing produces two types of entry doors: Deluxe and Standard

Cost Accounting
Kristopher Manufacturing produces two types of entry doors: Deluxe and Standard. The allocation basis for support costs has been direct labor dollars. For 2009, Kristopher compiled the following data for the two products:
Deluxe Standard
Sales in units 50,000 400,000
Sales price per unit 650 475
Direct material and labor costs per unit 180 130
Manufacturing overhead costs per unit 80 120

Last year, Kristopher purchased an expensive robotics system to allow for more decorative door products in the deluxe product line. The CFO suggested that an activity-based costing (ABC) analysis could be valuable to help evaluate a product mix and promotion strategy for the next sales campaign. She obtained the following ABC information for 2009:
Activity Cost Driver Cost Total Deluxe Standard
Setups # of setups 500,000 500 400 100
Machine-related # of machine hours 44,000,000 600,000 300,000 300,000
Packing # of shipments 5,000,000 250,000 50,000 200,000

Required (15 points):
a. Using the current system, what is the estimated
1. total cost of manufacturing one unit for each type of door?
2. profit per unit for each type of door?
b. Using the activity-based costing data presented above,
1. compute the cost-driver rate for each overhead activity.
2. compute the revised manufacturing overhead cost per unit for each type of entry door.
3. compute the revised total cost to manufacture one unit of each type of entry door.
4. Compute the profit per unit for each type of door.
c. Is the deluxe door as profitable as the original data estimated? Why or why not?
