The following information pertains to the next three questions 2-4.
Fifer Company produces two types of entry doors: the Hollow Core and the Solid Door models. The Company has used direct labor dollars to allocate the overhead cost of $47,450,000.

The company’s CFO, Brian Smythe, has offered the following information regarding the two products:
    Hollow Core    Solid Door
Sales in units    400,000    50,000
Sales price per unit    $475.00    $650.00
Direct materials per unit    55.00    130.00
Direct labor cost per unit    75.00    50.00
The company has hired you as an outside consultant to review the cost system and make recommendations.  You decide that an Activity Based Cost system should be considered and compile the following information based on conversations with the production manager:

Activity    Cost Driver    Cost
Order Taking    Number of orders    $     500,000
Setups    Number of setups    5,000,000
Machine cost    Number of machine hours    41,950,000
The number of transactions for each cost driver is as follows:
Cost Driver    Total    Hollow    Solid
Number of orders    500    100    400
Number of setups    2,500    2,000    500
Number of machine hours    600,000    300,000    300,000

2. Compute the product cost per door (i.e., per unit) using the traditional allocation system based on direct labor dollars [8 points]

                Hollow Core                Solid Door

Product Cost per door        ____________            ____________
3.  Compute the product cost per door (per unit) using activity based costing for each product.     [10 points]

                Hollow Core                Solid Door

Product Cost per door        ____________            ____________
4.  How should Mr. Smythe explain the reasons for any differences observed in your analysis above?     [4 points]
