Problem 3–57

Comprehensive Job-Order Costing Problem

Scholastic Brass Corporation manufactures brass musical instruments for use by high school students. The company uses a normal costing system, in which manufacturing overhead is applied on the basis of direct-labor hours. The company’s budget for the current year included the following predictions.

Budgeted total manufacturing overhead $426,300

Budgeted total direct-labor hours (based on practical capacity)          20,300

During March, the firm worked on the following two production jobs:

Job number T81, consisting of 76 trombones

Job number C40, consisting of 110 cornets

The events of March are described as follows:

  1. One thousand square feet of rolled brass sheet metal were purchased on account for $5,000. b. Four hundred pounds of brass tubing were purchased on account for $4,000.

Requisition number 112: 250 square feet of brass sheet metal at $5 per square foot (for job number T81)

Requisition number 113: 1,000 pounds of brass tubing, at $10 per pound (for job number C40)

Requisition number 114: 10 gallons of valve lubricant, at $10 per gallon

All brass used in production is treated as direct material. Valve lubricant is an indirect material.

Direct labor: Job number T81, 800 hours at $20 per hour

Direct labor: Job number C40, 900 hours at $20 per hour

Case 3-62

Cost Flows in a Job-Order Costing System; Schedule of Cost of Goods Manufactured: Automation

FiberCom, Inc., a manufacturer of fiber optic communications equipment, uses a job-order costing system. Since the production process is heavily automated, manufacturing overhead is applied on the basis of machine hours using a predetermined overhead rate. The current annual rate of $15 per machine hour is based on budgeted manufacturing overhead costs of $1,200,000 and a budgeted activity level of 80,000 machine hours (the company’s estimated practical capacity). Operations for the year have been completed, and all of the accounting entries have been made for the year except the application of manufacturing overhead to the jobs worked on during December, the transfer of costs from Work-in-Process to Finished-Goods for the jobs completed in December, and the transfer of costs from Finished Goods to Cost of Goods Sold for the jobs that have been sold during December. Summarized data as of November 30 and for the month of December are presented in the following table. Jobs T11-007, N11-013, and N11-015 were completed during December. All completed jobs except Job N11-013 had been turned over to customers by the close of business on December 31.
