Question details

Glassworks Inc. produces two types of glass shelving, rounded edge and squared edge, on the same production line. For the current period, the company reports the following data.
  

Rounded Edge Squared Edge Total
Direct materials $ 9,400 $ 21,400 $ 30,800
Direct labor 6,200 11,800 18,000
Overhead (300% of direct labor cost) 18,600 35,400 54,000
Total cost $ 34,200 $ 68,600 $ 102,800
Quantity produced 10,500 ft. 14,100 ft.
Average cost per ft. (rounded) $ 3.26 $ 4.87

  
Glassworks's controller wishes to apply activity-based costing (ABC) to allocate the $54,000 of overhead costs incurred by the two product lines to see whether cost per foot would change markedly from that reported above. She has collected the following information.

Supervision $ 2,160
Depreciation of machinery 28,840
