Broadening Your Prospective 17-2 “Managerial Perspective” Activity Cost PoolAnnual Cost
Market analysis \$1,050,000
Product design 2,350,000
Product development 3,600,000
Prototype testing 1,400,000

Product development Number of products 90 products
Prototype testing Number of tests 500 tests
1. Compute the activity-based overhead rate for each activity cost pool. Activity-based overhead is determined by dividing estimated overhead by the estimated cost drivers. Activity cost Pool Estimated Overhead /Cost drivers=ACB Overhead Rate Market analysis 1,050,00015,000\$70

Product Design2,350,0002,500\$940
Product development3,600,00090\$40,000
Prototype testing1,400,000500\$2,800

2. How much cost would be charged to an in-house manufacturing department that consumed 1,800 hours of market analysis time, was provided 280 designs relating to 10 products, and requested 92 engineering tests?

The total charged to an in-house manufacturing department would be \$1,046,800. This dollar amount is determined by multiplying the overhead rates of each activity to the amount consumed for that activity and added together for a total. (1,800*70= 126,000), (280*940=263,200) (10*40,000=400,000), (2,800*92=257,600)

3. How much cost would serve as the basis for pricing an R&D bid with an outside company on a contract that would consume 800 hours of analysis time, require 178 designs relating to 3 products, and result in 70 engineering tests?

\$539,320 would serve as the basis for pricing an R&D bid with an outside company because that dollar amount is the breakeven point. (800*70=56,000), (178*940=167,320), (3*40,000= 120,000),...
