Mr. J. G. Pigg, III is the sole owner of a brick company that manufactures custom bricks used in upscale homes. No two customers have the same type of bricks. The bricks go through three processes: mixing, shaping, and firing. The company uses a job order cost system and computes a predetermined overhead rate in each department. The mixing department bases its rate on direct materials, the shaping department bases its rate on machine hours, and the firing department bases its rate on direct labor hours. At the beginning of the year, the company made the following estimates:


                                                                       Mixing               Shaping              Firing           

Direct labor hours                                           80,000                45,000            60,000

b.   Assume the overhead rates that you computed in a. above are in effect.  Compute the total overhead cost to be assigned to Dr. Snout’s order—Job #5417, assuming the following data:



                                                                       Mixing               Shaping              Firing           

Direct labor hours                                              300                         80                   92

Machine hours                                                     80                       120                 120

Direct materials                                             $6,000                     $120               $300


c.   If actual overhead incurred totaled $3,500, compute the amount of over- or underapplied manufacturing overhead.


Ex.  125

Landis Company uses a job order cost system in each of its two manufacturing departments. Manufacturing overhead is applied to jobs on the basis of direct labor cost in Department A and machine hours in Department B.

                                                                                        A                                 B      

      Direct materials used                                         $195,000                     $128,000

      Direct labor cost                                                   100,000                       110,000

      Manufacturing overhead incurred                       180,000                       135,000

      Direct labor hours                                                    8,000                           8,400

      Machine hours                                                       16,000                         34,000
