WATERWAYS CONTINUING PROBLEM: WCP22

(This is a continuation of the Waterways Problem from Chapters 14 through 21.)

Waterways Corporation uses very stringent standard costs in evaluating its manufacturing efficiency. These standards are not “ideal” at this point, but the management is working toward that as a goal. At present, the company uses the following standards.

Materials
Item Per Unit Cost
Metal 1 lb. 58¢ per lb.
Plastic 12 oz. 96¢ per lb.
Rubber 4 oz. 80¢ per lb.

Direct Labor
Item Per Unit Cost
Labor 12 min. \$8.00 per hr.

Predetermined overhead rate based on direct labor hours = \$4.28

The January figures for purchasing, production, and labor are:

The company purchased 229,000 pounds of raw materials in January at a cost of
74¢ a pound.
Production used 229,000 pounds of raw materials to make 115,500 units in January.
Direct labor spent 15 minutes on each product at a cost of \$7.75 per hour.
Overhead costs for January totaled \$54,673 variable and \$63,800 fixed.
