Trico Company set the following standard unit costs for its single product. Direct materials (30 Ibs. @ \$4 per Ib.) \$ 120.00 Direct labor (5 hrs. @ \$14 per hr.) 70.00 Factory overhead—variable (5 hrs. @ \$8 per hr.) 40.00 Factory overhead—fixed (5 hrs. @ \$10 per hr.) 50.00 Total standard cost \$ 280.00 The predetermined overhead rate is based on a planned operating volume of 80% of the productive capacity of 60,000 units per quarter. The following flexible budget information is available. Operating Levels 70% 80% 90% Production in units 42,000 48,000 54,000 Standard direct labor hours 210,000 240,000 270,000 Budgeted overhead Fixed factory overhead \$ 2,400,000 \$ 2,400,000 \$ 2,400,000 Variable factory overhead \$ 1,680,000 \$ 1,920,000 \$ 2,160,000 During the current quarter, the company operated at 90% of capacity and produced 54,000 units of product; actual direct labor totaled 265,000 hours. Units produced were assigned the following standard costs. Direct materials (1,620,000 Ibs. @ \$4 per Ib.) \$ 6,480,000 Direct labor (270,000 hrs. @ \$14 per hr.) 3,780,000 Factory overhead (270,000 hrs. @ \$18 per hr.) 4,860,000 Total standard cost \$ 15,120,000 Actual costs incurred during the current quarter follow. Direct materials (1,615,000 Ibs. @ \$4.10 per lb.) \$ 6,621,500 Direct labor (265,000 hrs. @ \$13.75 per hr.) 3,643,750 Fixed factory overhead costs 2,350,000 Variable factory overhead costs 2,200,000 Total actual costs \$ 14,815,250

(a) Compute the variable overhead spending and efficiency variances. (Round "cost per unit" and "rate per hour" answers to 2 decimal places.)

(b) Compute the fixed overhead spending and volume variances. (Round "cost per unit" and "rate per hour" answers to 2 decimal places.)

(c) Compute the total overhead controllable variance.

Part A

 Actual variable OH cost Flexible budget Standard cost (VOH applied) AH x AVR AH x SVR SH x SVR 265000 x 8.30 (2200000/265000) 265000 x 8 270000 x 8 2200000 2120000 2160000 80000 (2200000-2120000) 40000 (2160000-2120000)
 Variable overhead spending variance \$ 80000 Unfavorable Variable overhead efficiency variance 40000 favorable Total variable overhead variance \$ 40000 Unfavorable

Part B

 Actual fixed OH cost Budgeted overhead Standard cost (FOH applied) AH x AFR SH x SFR 265000 8.87 (2350000/265000) 270000 x 10 2350000 2400000 2700000 50000 (240000-2350000) 300000 (2700000-2400000)
 Fixed overhead spending variance 50000 favorable Fixed overhead volume variance 300000 favorable Total fixed overhead variance 350000 favorable

Part C

 Variable overhead spending variance 80000 Unfavorable Variable overhead efficiency variance 40000 favorable Fixed overhead spending variance 50000 favorable Total overhead controllable variance 10000 favorable
