EcoFabrics has budgeted overhead costs of \$963,900. It has allocated overhead on a plantwide basis to its two products (wool and cotton) using direct labor hours which are estimated to be 459,000 for the current year. The company has decided to experiment with activity-based costing and has created two activity cost pools and related activity cost drivers. These two cost pools are cutting (cost driver is machine hours) and design (cost driver is number of setups). Overhead allocated to the cutting cost pool is \$367,200 and \$596,700 is allocated to the design cost pool. Additional information related to these pools is as follows. Wool Cotton Total Machine hours 102,000 102,000 204,000 Number of setups 1,020 510 1,530 Calculate the overhead rate using activity based costing. (Round answers to 2 decimal places, e.g. 12.25.)

Answer #1

Solution 1& 2:

 Determination of overhead rate and allocated overheads to product lines - Activity based costing Activity Estimated Overhead Cost Activity Base Usage of Activity Base Activity Rate Wool Product line Cotton Product line Usage Allocated Costs Usage Allocated Costs Cutting \$367,200.00 Machine hours 204000 \$1.80 102000 \$183,600.00 102000 \$183,600.00 Design \$596,700.00 Nos of setups 1530 \$390.00 1020 \$397,800.00 510 \$198,900.00 Total \$963,900.00 \$581,400.00 \$382,500.00

Solution 3:

Overhead rate per direct labor hour using traditional approach = Budgeted overhead /Budgeted direct labor hours

= \$963,900 / 459000 = \$2.10 per hour

Overhead allocated to wool product line = (459000*50%*\$2.10) = \$481,950

Overhead allocated to cotton product line = (459000*50%*\$2.10) = \$481,950
