Hello. I need help in understanding and intepreting "Indirect Cost Analysis" type questions. Can someone answer the following questions for me so I can better understand Indirect Costing methodolgy. Please place answers under the appropriate corresponding questions (i.e. a, b, c) with solution methodology.

1. A manufacturer is estimating its overhead its overhead rate for the next fiscal year. The contractor expects to manufacture 24,500 units next year. Material costs are expected to be $175 per unit. Each unit will take 6.5 hours of labor at $8.75 per hour. The manufacturer's estimate for the total indirect costs is $325,000.

a. What is the manufacturing overhead rate using units (volume) as the base?

b. What is the manufacturing overhead recovery rate using total labor hours as the base?

c. What is the manufacturing overhead recovery rate using total labor costs as the
base?

2. Determine the manufacturing overhead expenses for a contract with a
requirement based on 1,575 units (use rates computed in question 1 above to calculate the expenses for a, b, and c below).

Please help with answer the following questions.
1. What is direct cost? What criteria are used to determine whether a cost is a direct cost?
To calculate the total cost of the production department or to calculate each product's total cost, it is necessary to allocate some of the rent (and other indirectcosts) to the d

1. All costs are either fixed or variable. The only difficulty in costanalysis is determining which of the two categories each cost belongs to. Do you agree? Explain.
2. Distinguish between direct, indirect, and unallocated costs. Can the same cost can be both direct and indirect? Explain your answer?

Please help with answer the following question: Include at least 300 words and step by step calculations.
In analysis of overhead cost variances, what is the controllable variance and what causes it?

I need help with classifying weather are not these items are variable or fixed cost, direct or indirectcost, are controllable or uncontrollable cost.
1.Raw materials.
2.Staples used to secure packed boxes of the product.
3.Plant janitor's wages.
4.Order processing clerk's wages.
5.Advertising expenses.
6.Production work

1. Explain how a budgeted indirect-cost rate is determined.
2. What is the difference between an actual cost system and a normal cost system?
I really appreciate your help, thank you.

I am stuck on this... Assume the network and data that follow. Compute the total direct cost for each project duration. If the indirectcosts for each project duration are $400 (19 time units), $350 (18), $300 (17), $25 (16) compute the total project cost for each duratin. Plot the total direct, indirect and project costs for

During the last 10 months, Arcade Corporation has had the following indirectcosts. It is tryng to determine a good cost driver for the indirectcosts. That usage of two potential cost drivers, direct labor hours and machine hours has been recorded over the last 10 months.
