number of setups.
machine hours.
number of units.
direct labor hours.

3. (TCO 8) A department that is capital intensive most likely would use a predetermined departmental overhead rate based on which activity base? (Points : 3)
Units of direct material used
Direct labor hours
Direct labor cost
Machine hours

4. (TCO 8) Star Inc. uses a job-order costing system to account for product costs.
The following information was provided for the current year.
Materials placed in production $120,000
Indirect labor $25,000
Direct labor (10,000 hours) $145,000
Depreciation of factory building $55,000
Other factory overhead $85,000
Increase in work-in-process inventory $25,000
Factory overhead rate per direct labor hour $15

$25,000 overapplied
$15,000 overapplied
$25,000 underapplied
$15,000 underapplied

5. (TCO 8) Acme Company manufactures two products (anvils and barrels). Overhead costs ($84,000) have been divided into three cost pools, which use the following activity drivers.

Anvils 10 500 75
Barrels 10 2,000 175

6. (TCO 8) Which is NOT a limitation of a plantwide overhead rate? (Points : 3)
Product diversity may consume overhead activities under differing consumption ratios.
Overhead usage is not strictly linked to the units produced because some products are more complex and diverse than others.
Predetermined rates using budgeted overhead are usually the best estimate of the amount of overhead.
Overhead costs tend to be underallocated to highly complex products.

driver analysis.
activity outputs.
activity inputs.
value-added activities.
