## 4 ACTIVITY-BASED PRODUCT COSTING

1

LEARNING
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
OBJECTIVES
1. Discuss the importance of unit costs.
2. Describe functional-based costing
approaches.
3. Tell why functional-based costing
approaches may produce distorted costs.

4. Explain how an activity-based costing
system works for product costing.
5. Explain how the number of activity rates
can be reduced.

LO 1

UNIT
UNIT COST:
COST: Definition
Definition
Unit cost is the
total cost associated with the
units produced divided by the #
of units produced.
(Total cost) / (# units produced)

LO 1

## Total cost refers to production

c)manufacturing

## Production costs we assign may

be actual or estimated

## Production costs are assigned by

1 of 2 methods: functional?
activitybased
or ?
based
costing.

LO 1

UNIT COSTS
Affect
Bids submitted for special products
Development, introduction of new products
Decisions to
Make or buy a product or service
Accept or reject a special order
Keep or drop a product or service

CAPACITY
CAPACITY LEVELS:
LEVELS: Definition
Definition
Fill in the blanks
Expected
Expected activity capacity is output for coming year
Normal activity capacity is average activity
experienced over long term
Theoretical
Theoretical activity capacity is absolute maximum
that can be achieved in perfect world
Practical
Practical activity capacity is maximum that can be
achieved under efficient operation

PLANTWIDE RATE:
An Example

\$360,000

100,000

100,000

\$380,000

## Predetermined rate = Budgeted cost / Estimated activity usage

= \$360,000 / 100,000
= \$3.60 per DLH
= \$3.60 x 100,000
=

\$360,000

LO 2

(\$360,000) differs from actual

Underapplied (overapplied)
(overapplied)
overhead is a variance that is
to (subtracted from) cost
of goods sold.

LO 3

## How does a company know if

its functional-based costing is
producing distorted costs?

## There are many symptoms of

distorted costs, such as profit
margins that are difficult to
explain.

products on the basis of usage

COMPARING
COMPARING SYSTEMS
SYSTEMS
Functional-based system
Overhead uses only unit-based activity drivers or
Splits overhead into fixed and variable and
allocates overhead based on the appropriate unitlevel rate

Activity-based system
Improves product costing by
Looking at cause & effect
Recognizing that some fixed overhead varies in
proportion to changes other than production volume
