The “Other” activity cost pool consists of the costs of idle capacity and organization-sustaining costs.  You have been asked to complete the first-stage allocation of costs to the activity cost pools.

9.   ALF Co. is an assisted-living facility that provides services in the form of residential space, meals, and other occupant assistance (OOA) to its occupants.  ALF currently uses a traditional cost account system that defines the service provided as assisted living, with service output measured in terms of occupant days.  Each occupant is charged a daily rate equal to ALF’s annual cost of providing residential space, meals and OOA divided by total occupant days.  However, an activity-based costing (ABC) analysis has revealed that occupant’s use of OOA varies substantially.  This analysis determined that occupants could be grouped into three categories (low, moderate, and high usage of OOA) and that the activity driver of OOA is nursing hours.  The driver of the other activities is occupant days.  The following quantitative information was also provided:

Occupant categoryAnnual Occupant DaysAnnual Nursing Hours
Low Usage36,000  90,000
Medium Usage18,000  90,000
High Usage  6,000120,000
 60,000300,000

The total annual cost of OOA was $7.5 million, and the total annual cost of providing residential space and meals was $7.2 million.  Accordingly, the ABC analysis indicates that the daily costing rate should be

a.   $182.50 for occupants in the low-usage category.

b.   $145.00 for occupants in the medium-usage category.

c.   $245.00 for occupants in the high-usage category.

Questions 23 thru 26 are based on the following information.

Acton Company has two products: A and B.  The annual production and sales of Product A is 800 units and of Product B is 500 units. The company has traditionally used direct labor-hours as the basis for applying all manufacturing overhead to products. Product A requires 0.3 direct labor hours per unit and Product B requires 0.2 direct labor hours per unit. The total estimated overhead for next period is $92,023.

The company is considering switching to an activity-based costing system for the purpose of computing unit product costs for external reports. The new activity-based costing system would have three overhead activity cost pools–Activity 1, Activity 2, and General Factory–with estimated overhead costs and expected activity as follows:

Question 27 through 30 are based on the following information.

This information was presented as part of Question 3 on Part 3 of the June 1992 CMA examination, which covered activity-based costing.

Alaire Corporation manufactures several different types of printed circuit boards:  however, two of the boards account for the majority of the company’s sales.  The first of these boards, a television (TV) circuit board, has been a standard in the industry for several years.  The market for this type of board is competitive and therefore price-sensitive.  Alaire plans to sell 65,000 of the TV boards in 1993 at a price of $150 per unit.  The second high-volume product, a persona computer (PC) circuit board, is a recent addition to Alaire’s product line.  Because the PC board incorporates the latest technology, it can be sold at a premium price, plans include the sale of 40,000 PC boards at $300 per unit.

Alaire’s management group is meeting to discuss strategies for 1993, and the current topic of conversation is how to spend the sales and promotion dollars for next year.  The sales manager believe that the market share for the TV board could be expanded by concentrating Alaire’s promotional efforts in this area.  In response to this suggestion, the production manager said, “Why don’t you go after a bigger market for the PV board?  The cost sheets that I get show a premium price for the PC board, selling it should help overall profitability.”

Alaire uses a standard cost system, and the following data apply to the TV and PC boards.

 

 

TV Board

PC Board
Direct materials$80$140
Direct labor1.5 hours4.0 hours
Machine time0.5 hours1.5 hours

Variable factory overhead is applied on the basis of direct labor hours.  For 1993, variable factory is budgeted at $1,120,000, and direct labor hours are estimated at 280,000.  The hourly rates for machine time and direct labor are $10 and $14, respectively.  Alaire applies a material handling charge at 10% of materials cost, thus materials handling charge is not included in variable factory overhead.  Total 1993 expenditures for materials are budgeted at $10,600,000.

Ed Watch, Alaire’s controller, believes that, the management group proceeds with the discussion about allocating sales and promotional dollars to individual products, they should consider the activities involved in the production.  As Welch explained to the group, “Activity-based costing integrates the cost of all activities, known as cost drivers, into individual product costs rather than including these costs in overhead pools.”  Welch has prepared the schedule shown below to help the management group understand this concept.

“Using this information,” Welch explained, “we can calculate an activity-based cost for each TV board and each PC board and then compare it to the standard cost we have bee using.  The only cost that remains the same for both cost methods is the cost of direct materials.  The cost drivers will replace the direct labor, machine time, and overhead costs in the standard cost.”
