FireOut, Inc._ABC Costing

AP17-1A (a-e)FireOut, Inc. manufactures steel cylinders and nozzles for two models of fire extinguishers: (1) a home fire extinguisher and (2) a commercial fire extinguisher. The home 1 model is a high-volume (54,000 units), half-gallon cylinder that holds 2 1/2 pounds of multipurpose dry chemical at 480 PSI. The commercial model is a low-volume (10,200 units), two-gallon cylinder that holds 10 pounds of multi-purpose dry chemical at 390 PSI. Both products require 1.5 hours of direct labor for completion. Therefore, total annual direct labor hours are 96,300 or [1.5 hrs × (54,000 + 10,200)]. Expected annual manufacturing overhead is $1,493,200. Thus, the predetermined overhead rate is $15.51 or ($1,493,200 ÷ 96,300) per direct labor hour. The direct materials cost per unit is $18.50 for the home model and $26.50 for the commercial model. The direct labor cost is $19 per unit for both the home and the commercial models.       The company’s managers identified six activity cost pools and related cost drivers and accumulated overhead by cost pool as follows.  Activity Cost PoolCost DriverEstimated OverheadExpected Use of Cost DriversExpected Use of  Drivers by ProductHomeCommercial Receiving  Pounds$72,300 335,000 215,000 120,000  Forming Machine hours149,800 35,000 27,000 8,000  Assembling Number of parts380,800 217,000 165,000 52,000  Testing Number of tests51,300 25,500 15,500 10,000  Painting Gallons51,100 5,258 3,680 1,578  Packing and shipping Pounds787,900 335,000 215,000 120,000     $1,493,200         


Your answer is incorrect.  Try again.  Under traditional product costing, compute the total unit cost of both products. (Round your answers to 2 decimal places, e.g. 20.25.)Home Model$[removed]Commercial Model$[removed] 


Your answer is incorrect.  Try again.  Under ABC, complete the schedule showing the computations of the activity-based overhead rates (per cost driver).

Your answer is incorrect.  Try again.  Complete the schedule assigning each activity’s overhead cost pool to each product based on the use of cost drivers. (Use rates from part b above and round cost assigned to 0 decimal places, e.g. 20.500. Round overhead per unit to 3 decimal places, e.g. 2.250. Note that due to rounding your total cost assigned will be slightly different than calculated above.)Cost DriverHome Model Commercial ModelCost AssignedExpected Use of DriversActivity- Based Overhead RatesCost AssignedExpected Use of DriversActivity- Based Overhead RatesReceiving[removed]$[removed]$[removed][removed]$[removed]$[removed]Forming[removed]$[removed][removed][removed]$[removed][removed]Assembling[removed]$[removed][removed][removed]$[removed][removed]Testing [removed]$[removed][removed][removed]$[removed][removed]Painting [removed]$[removed][removed][removed]$[removed][removed]Packing[removed]$[removed][removed][removed]$[removed][removed]   Total cost assigned $[removed]  $[removed]Units produced  [removed]  [removed]Overhead cost per unit $[removed]  $[removed]
