Review of Chapters 7 and 8, 3-variance analysis. (CPA, adapted) The Beal Manufacturing Company’s costing system has two direct-cost categories: direct materials and direct manufacturing labor. Manufacturing overhead (both variable and fixed) is allocated to products on the basis of standard direct manufacturing labor-hours (DLH). At the beginning of 2017, Beal adopted the following standards for its manufacturing costs:

Cost per Output Unit
$ 20.00
Input
5 lb. at $4 per Ib.
4 hrs. at $16 per hr.
Direct materials
Direct manufacturing labor
Manufacturing overhead:
64.00
$8 per DLH
$9 per DLH
Variable
32.00
Fixed
36.00
Standard manufacturing cost per output unit
$152.00
