The RD&I Division sold a production quality control service, on contract, to the other divisions at variable cost plus 10% and also contracted externally. RD&I was given a budget appropriation, for researching new products, which was not included in the calculation of its ROI. John Big's objective in decentralizing the corporate structure was to make each division operate and be evaluated as if it were an independent business. Corporate overhead was allocated to the divisions on the basis of a percentage of sales. The division managers were each allowed to make annual investments of not more than 5% of their divisional net assets on their own authority.
The traditional costing method lumps all overhead costs into a single pool and allocates those costs across all products produced based on one of the three cost drivers (direct labor hours, number of units produced, or machine hours). This method of costing does not take into account the differences between products when allocating overhead costs, like a product’s custom requirements or production complexity, so the costs are applied the same way across all products produced using the cost driver (The Economist Newspaper, 2009). Activity based costing allocates overhead costs to
Traditional allocations with one resources to spread overhead often charges products an "average rate" and so fussy and difficult products get a break (charged less than they consume or "under costed") and easy low-hassle products look worse than they are (charged more then they consumer or "over costed"). Companies that benefit from ABC are those that have significant levels of variable overhead and those with products that use disproportionate share of overhead resources. Companies with small overhead or products that all use overhead in about the same proportion would get about the same overhead allocation under traditional and ABC methods. Since ABC methods are more work (so more expensive), if there isn't a benefit, it is better to stick to a simpler and cheaper method. Krishnan (2006) implemented ABC at a university (actual university was kept anonymous in the study) to help them understand their costs and cost drivers in order to better understand why their operation costs were so high.
1 out of 1.00 point The following journal entry would be made in a processing costing system when units that have been completed with respect to the work done in Processing Department Z are transferred from Processing Department Z to Processing Department Y: True False In a process costing system, overhead costs are traced to units of product as they are incurred. True False A process cost system would be used to account for the cost of manufacturing an oil tanker. True False A process costing system would be best suited for production of a large quantity of a homogeneous product. True False In process costing, costs are accumulated in processing departments, rather than by job. True False The job cost sheet is used in both job-order and process costing.

As the time horizon increases, variable costs rely less on existing factors and restrictions and therefore will begin behaving differently which will in turn affect the cost of production (Wright, 2007). The second way a firm that’s into profit maximization can decide its greatest level of output is by way of the marginal revenue -- marginal cost method. This is done by subtracting the marginal cost from the marginal revenue that a product generates. Using marginal cost and marginal revenue as the bases, profit maximization will be obtained at the point when marginal revenue is equal to marginal cost. If the marginal revenue is greater than marginal cost this would be when a profit maximizing firm would need to increase production until marginal revenue is equal to marginal cost.

When considering how Small Fries Inc and its other facilities should record the costs associated with OSHA compliance on their financial statements as either capitalized as an asset or charged to expenses. We should consider the types of repairs that will be done. Whether they are ordinary repairs or major and extraordinary repairs that will benefit the companies more than one year or operating cycle. According to ASC 360 -10- 25- 5 Planned Major Maintenance Activities, The use of the accrue-in-advance (accrual) method of accounting for planned major maintenance activities is prohibited in annual and interim financial reporting periods. GAAP defines a company's assets as the things it owns or controls that have measurable future economic
