Direct Labor Variances
The following data relate to labor cost for production of 4,300 cellular telephones:
|Actual:||2,930 hrs. at $14|
|Standard:||2,880 hrs. at $14.3|
a. Determine the direct labor rate variance, direct labor time variance, and total direct labor cost variance. Enter a favorable variance as a negative number using a minus sign and an unfavorable variance as a positive number.
|Total direct labor cost variance||$|
b. The employees may have been less-experienced or poorly trained, thereby resulting in a labor rate than planned. The lower level of experience or training may have resulted in efficient performance. Thus, the actual time required was than standard.
