    Company XYZ manufactures one model of fiberglass row boat. The following information relates to budgeted and actual production for XYZ company during 2015.

    Standard Costs for one row boat is as follows:
    Direct material:
    Fiberglass compound 6 [email protected] $24.00/gallon $144.00
    Direct labor: 2 hours @$25.00/hour $ 50.00
    Variable overhead: $6.00/direct labor hour $ 12.00
    Fixed overhead: $240,000 per year (applied using direct labor hours)
    $60/dlh = $240,000/4,000 dlh
    Budgeted production and sales 2,000 row boats
    Budgeted selling price $500.00/row boat

    Other Information:
    Variable Selling and Administrative costs
    Shipping $ 50 per row boat
    commissions ( 4% of selling price) $ 20 per row boat
    Fixed Selling and administrative costs $125,000 per year

    XYZ, planned sales for 2015 2,000 row boats

    During 2015:
    Actual units produced and sold= 1,800 row boats
    Actual selling price = $485.00 row boat.
    12,000 gallons of fiberglass compound were purchased costing $289,800 and 10,710 gallons were used in production.
    Direct labor cost for 2015 was $85,500 and 3,420 hours direct labor hours during the year.
