Jay Levitt Company produces one product, a putter called GO-Putter. Levitt uses a standard cost system and determines that it should take one hour of direct labor to produce one GO-Putter. The normal production capacity for this putter is 100,000 units per year. The total budgeted overhead at normal capacity is $800,000 comprised of $200,000 of variable costs and $600,000 of fixed costs. Levitt applies overhead on the basis of direct labor hours.
During the current year, Levitt produced 90,000 putters, worked 94,000 direct labor hours, and incurred variable overhead costs of $186,000 and fixed overhead costs of $600,000.




Compute the predetermined variable overhead rate and the predetermined fixed overhead rate.

Putnam Corporation manufactures a single product. The standard cost per unit of product is shown below.
Direct materials-1 pound plastic at $7.00 per pound $ 7.00
Direct labor-1.5 hours at $12.00 per hour 18.00
Variable manufacturing overhead 11.25
Fixed manufacturing overhead 3.75

Total standard cost per unit $40.00



The predetermined manufacturing overhead rate is $10 per direct labor hour ($15.00 ÷ 1.5). It was computed from a master manufacturing overhead budget based on normal production of 7,500 direct labor hours (5,000 units) for the month. The master budget showed total variable costs of $56,250 ($7.50 per hour) and total fixed overhead costs of $18,750 ($2.50 per hour). Actual costs for October in producing 4,900 units were as follows.

Direct materials (5,100 pounds) $ 37,230
Direct labor (7,000 hours) 87,500
Variable overhead 56,170
Fixed overhead 19,680

Total manufacturing costs $200,580



The purchasing department buys the quantities of raw materials that are expected to be used in production each month. Raw materials inventories, therefore, can be ignored.





Compute all of the materials and labor variances.
