Problem 4-58 Calculate Job Cost and Use It to Calculate Price
Suppose that back in the 1970s, Steve was asked to build speakers for two friends. The first friend, Jan, needed a speaker for her band. The second friend, Ed, needed a speaker built into the back of his hatchback automobile. Steve figured the following costs for each:
Estimated overhead Direct labor hours Direct labor cost Machine hours
Welding
\$220,000 4,500 \$ 90,000 5,000
Assembly
\$ 62,000 10,000 \$150,000 1,000
Finishing
\$150,000 6,000 \$120,000 2,000
