Presented below are the monthly factory overhead cost budget (at normal capacity of 10,000 units or 30,000 direct labor hours) and the production and cost data for a month. The predetermined overhead rate is based on normal capacity.


Required:
1. Assuming that variable costs will vary in direct proportion to the change in volume, prepare a flexible budget for production levels of 80%, 90%, and 110% of normal capacity. Also determine the rate for application of factory overhead to work-in-process at each level of volume in both units and direct labor hours.
2. Prepare a flexible budget for production levels of 80%, 90%, and 110%, assuming that variable costs will vary in direct proportion to the change in volume, but with the following exceptions.
a. At 105% of capacity, another supervisor will be needed at a salary of $21,000 annually.
b. At 85% of capacity, the repairs expense will drop to one- half of the amount at 100% capacity.
c. At 90% of capacity, one part-time maintenance worker, earning $9,000 a year, will be laid off.
d. At 110% of capacity, a machine not normally in use and on which no depreciation is normally recorded will be used in production. Its cost was $18,000, it has a ten year life, and straight-line depreciation will betaken.
