Northstar Company uses ABC to account for its chrome wheel
Northstar Company uses ABC to account for its chrome wheel manufacturing process. Company managers have identified four manufacturing activities that incur manufacturing overhead costs: materials handling, machine setup, insertion of parts, and finishing. The budgeted activity costs for the upcoming year and their allocation bases are as follows:


Northstar expects to produce 1,000 chrome wheels during the year. The wheels are ­expected to use 3,000 parts, require 10 setups, and consume 2,000 hours of finishing time.
Job 420 used 150 parts, required 2 setups, and consumed 100 finishing hours.
Job 510 used 500 parts, required 4 setups, and consumed 310 finishing hours.
