Question 1.1. (TCO 9) Harper Company’s Job 501 for the manufacture of 2,200 coats was completed during August at the unit costs presented as follows. Final inspection of Job 501 disclosed 200 spoiled coats, which were sold to a jobber for $6,000.

Direct materials$20

Direct labor 18

Factory overhead (which includes an

allowance of $1 for spoiled work) 18


Assume that spoilage loss is charged to all production during August. What would be the unit cost of the good coats produced on Job 501? (Points : 11)





Question 2.2. (TCO 9) Some units of output failed to pass final inspection at the end of the manufacturing process. The production and inspection supervisors determined that the estimated incremental revenue from reworking the units exceeded the cost of rework. The rework of the defective units was authorized, and the following costs were incurred in reworking the units.

Materials requisitioned from stores:

Direct materials $ 5,000

Miscellaneous supplies 300

Direct labor 14,000

The manufacturing overhead budget includes an allowance for rework. The predetermined manufacturing overhead rate is 150% as large as direct labor. The account(s) to be charged and the appropriate charges for the rework costs would be (Points : 11)

Question 6.6. (TCO 7) The technique that incorporates the time value of money by determining the compound interest rate of an investment at which the present value of the after-tax cash inflows over the life of the investment is equal to the initial investment is the (Points : 11)

Question 7.7. (TCO 7) Burnham Co. bought a machine that it will depreciate on the straight-line basis over an estimated useful life of 7 years. The machine will have no salvage value. Burnham expects the machine to generate after-tax net cash inflows from operations to equal $110,000 in each of the 7 years. Burnham’s minimum rate of return is 12%. Information on present value factors is as follows.

Present value of $1 at 12% at the end of 7 periods 0.452

Present value of an ordinary annuity of $1 at 125 for 7 periods 4.564

Assuming a positive net present value of $12,000, what was the original cost of the machine? (Points : 11)





Question 8.8.

(TCO 7) Paula bought a machine costing $1,000, which will produce cash inflows of $1,400 over the next 4 years. Determine the payback period given the following cash flows.

Question 9.9. (TCO 9) Which of the following does not describe the six steps in designing an accounting-based performance measure? (Points : 11)

The issues in each step are interdependent.

The decision maker will often proceed through the steps several times before deciding on one or more performance measure(s).

The answers to the questions raised at each step depend on top management’s beliefs about the organization.

The steps must be done in sequence.

Question 10.10. (TCO 8) The proposed transfer price is based on outlay cost. Outlay cost plus opportunity cost is (Points : 11)

the retail price.

the price representing the cash outflows of the supplying division plus the contribution to the supplying division from an outside sale.

the price usually set by an absorption-costing calculation.

the price set by charging for variable costs plus a lump-sum or additional markup, but less than full markup.

Question 11.11.

(TCO 8) Abalone & Fitch has two divisions, C and D, each operated as a profit center. C charges D $35 per unit for each unit transferred to D. Other data follow.

C’s variable cost per unit $30

C’s fixed costs 10,000

C’s annual sales to D 5,000 units

C’s sales to outsiders 50,000 units

C is planning to raise its transfer price to $50 per unit. Division D can purchase units at $40 each from outsiders, but doing so would idle C’s facilities now committed to producing units for D. Division C cannot increase its sales to outsiders. From the perspective of the company as a whole, from whom should division D acquire the units, assuming D’s market is unaffected?

(Points : 11)

Outside vendors

Division C, but only at the variable cost per unit

Division C, but only until fixed costs are covered, then from outside vendors

Division C, despite the increased transfer price

Question 12.12. (TCO 8) Milton Industries is a vertically integrated firm with several divisions that operate as decentralized profit centers. Milton’s Savvy Division manufactures scientific instruments and uses the products of two of Milton’s other divisions. The Bored Division manufactures printed circuit boards (PCBs). One PCB model is made exclusively for the Savvy Division using proprietary designs, whereas less complex models are sold in outside markets. The products of the Transistor Division are sold in a well-developed competitive market; however, one transistor model is also used by the Savvy Division.

The costs per unit of the products used by the Savvy Division are presented below.

PCB Transistor

Direct materials$2.50 $ .80

Direct labor 4.50 1.00

Variable overhead 2.00 .50

Fixed cost .80 .75

Total cost $9.80 $3.05

The Bored Division sells its commercial products at full cost plus a 25% markup and believes the proprietary board made for the Savvy Division would sell for $12.25 per unit on the open market. The market price of the transistor used by the Savvy Division is $3.70 per unit.

Assume that the Savvy Division is able to purchase a large quantity of transistors from an outside source at $2.90 per unit. The Transistor Division, having excess capacity, agrees to lower its transfer price to $2.90 per unit. This action would (Points : 11)

allow evaluation of both divisions on the same basis.

subvert the profit goals of the Transistor Division while optimizing the profit goals of the Savvy Division.

cause mediocre behavior in the Transistor Division as lost opportunity costs increase.

optimize the overall profit goals of Milton Industries.
