Project Description:

falcon crest corporation manufactures two brands of wine: regular and extra rich. below is the current year’s production date for the company

regular extra rich
direct material in pounds 225,000 110,000
direct labor hours 45,000 65,000
machine hours 36,000 24,000
number of setups 1,450 2,375

the 335,000 pounds of matrial had a total cost of $753,750. direct labor is $21 per hour. the company has total overhead production costs of $2,212,125.
a. if falcon crest corporation applies factory overhead using direct labor hours, compute the total production cost and the unit cost for each brand.

c. assume that falcon crest corporation has established the following activity centers, cost drivers, and costs to apply factory overhead.
cost pool cost driver cost volume
equipment maintenance # of machine hours $450,000 60,000

material handling pounds of materials $703,500 335,000
storage costs # of gallons produced $810,000 540,000
