# A value stream has three activities and two products. The units produced and shipped per week are 50 of the limited model (Model K), characterized by special additional features, and 150 of the regular model (Model R), with only basic features. The conversion cost resource consumption patterns are shown as follows: Required: 1. Calculate the ABC product cost (conversion cost) for Models K and R. 2. Calculate the value-stream average product cost (conversion cost). Assuming reasonable stability in the consumption patterns of the products and product mix, assess how well the products are grouped, based on similarity. 3. Calculate the cycle time for each product by dividing the total hours used for each product by the units produced of each product. Now calculate the DBC cost for each product. Comment on the significance of DBC for this setting.

To determine

Compute product cost as per ABC costing.

Explanation

Value Stream:

Value stream consists of the processes through which a product goes; that is from procurement to delivery. In value stream, all processes are covered whether or not they add value to the product.

Computation of ABC conversion costs for model A and B:

 Particulars Model A ($) Model B ($) Total ($) Activity one1 @$4 per minute (4×2,700) 10,800 (4×2,100) 8,400 19,200 Activity two1 @ $42.5 per hour (42.5×65) 2,762.5 (42.5×15) 637.5 3,400 Activity three1 @$37.5 per hour (37.5×25) 937.5 (37.5×55) 2,062.5 3,000 Total (A) 14,500 11,100 25,600 Number of units (B) 50 150 200 Unit conversion cost (AB) 290 74
