The Antigone Company uses machine hours to apply overhead to the Machining Department and direct labor hours in the Assembly Department. The following information is available for the current year:

 Machining Assembly Estimated overhead \$ 420,000 \$ 540,000 Estimated activity: Machine hours 70,000 15,000 Direct labor hours 40,000 60,000 Actual activity: Machine hours 64,500 12,500 Direct labor hours 35,000 63,200

What is the total amount of overhead assigned to the product?

\$860,000

Predetermined rate for Machining Department = Estimated overhead ÷ Estimated machine hours = \$420,000 / 70,000 = \$6 per machine hour

Predetermined rate for Assembly Department = Estimated overhead ÷ Estimated direct labor hours = \$540,000 / 60,000 = \$9 per direct labor hour

The total amount of overhead that will be assigned to the product = (64,500 Actual machine hours × \$6 per machine hour) + (63,200 Actual direct labor hours × \$9 per direct labor hour) = \$955,800
