Discussion Question 1
Assess this statement: Activity-based costing is only useful for manufacturing companies. Do you agree or disagree, why?
Discussion Question 2
It is fairly straightforward to combine process costing and activity-based costing in one statement. Is it possible to combine job order costing, process costing, and activity-based costing in one statement? If so, please provide an example.
The period manufacturing costs of a company is comprised of $2,000,000 in direct materials, $1,000,000 in direct labor, and $500,000 in overhead, resulting in 7,000 units of product. Manufacturing operations consists of two processes, machining and assembly. Machining takes up 40% of direct materials, 60% of direct labor, and 50% of overhead. Provide a hybrid manufacturing cost statement, containing combined activity-based costing and process costing.
