Question

Dibden Manufacturing Company set its standard variable manufacturing cost at $48 per unit of product. The company planned to make and sell 4,000 units of product during 2015. More specifically, the master budget called for total variable manufacturing cost to be $192,000. Actual production during 2015 was 4,200 units, and actual variable manufacturing costs amounted to $203,280. The production supervisor was asked to explain the variance between budgeted and actual cost ($203,280 – $192,000 = $11,280). The supervisor responded that she was not responsible for the variance that was caused solely by the increase in sales volume controlled by the marketing department.

Required
