Variance Analysis
AQ = “actual quantity” of input used to produce the output. AP = “actual price” of the input used to produce the output. SQ and SP = “standard” quantity and price that was anticipated. Variance analysis can be conducted for material, labor, and overhead.

DIRECT MATERIAL VARIANCES

Scenario
* When actual material costs are different than total standard costs determine the cause. (Price Variance + Quantity Variance) * Price Variance (SP-AP) x AQ - A variance that reveals the difference between the standard price for materials purchased and the amount actually paid for those materials * Quantity Variance (SQ – AQ) x SP - A variance that compares the standard quantity of materials that should have been used to the actual quantity of materials used Scenario...
