Question details

The Clinton Shoppe is a national bakery that is known for its strawberry cheesecake. It makes 12 different kinds of cheesecake as well as many other types of bakery items. It has recently adopted an activity-based costing system to assign manufacturing overhead to products. The following data relate to its strawberry cheesecake and the ABC cost pools:

Strawberry Cheesecake:
Annual production 18,200 Units
Direct materials per unit $9
Direct labor per unit $3
Cost Pool Cost Cost Driver
Materials Ordering 69,840 Number of purchase orders
Materials inspection 72,520 Number of receiving reports
Equipment setup 84,160 Number of setups
Quality Control 57,860 Number of inspections
Other 103,000 Direct labor cost
Total manufacturing overhead 387,380

Annual activity information related to cost drivers:

Cost Pool All Products Strawberry Cheesecake
Materials Ordering 8,730 orders 110
Materials inspection 370 receiving report 5
Equipment setup 2,630 setups 2
Quality Control 2,630 inspections 130
Other 2,060,000 direct labor 54,600

Calculate the overhead rate per unit of activity for each of the five cost pools. (Round overhead rate for Other Cost Pool to 2 decimal places, e.g. 15.25.)

Calculate the total overhead assigned to the production of the strawberry cheesecake.

Calculate the overhead cost per unit for the strawberry cheesecake. (Round answer to 3 decimal places, e.g. 15.254.)

Calculate the total unit cost for the strawberry cheesecake. (Round answer to 3 decimal places, e.g. 15.254.)

Suppose that the Clinton Shoppe allocates overhead by a traditional production volume-based method using direct labor dollars as the allocation base and one cost pool. Determine the overhead rate per direct labor dollar and the per unit overhead assigned to the strawberry cheesecake. (Round answers to 3 decimal places, e.g. 15.254.)
