Direct labor per unit——————-\$2

Cost Pool———————–Cost————————Cost Driver

Materials ordering———-\$ 72,000—————Number of purchase orders

Materials inspection———75,000—————-Number of receiving reports

Equipment setup————-105,000—————Number of setups

Materials ordering—————-8,000 orders———————–100

Materials inspection——–375 receiving reports——————-60

Equipment setup—————-3,000 setups————————–30

Quality control—————-3,000 inspections———————-150

Required

a.Calculate the overhead rate per unit of activity for each of the five cost pools.

b.Calculate the total overhead assigned to the production of the strawberry cheesecake.

c.Calculate the overhead cost per unit for the strawberry cheesecake. Round to three decimal places.

d.Calculate the total unit cost for the strawberry cheesecake. Round to three decimal places.

e.Suppose that the Divine Cheesecake Shoppe allocates overhead by a traditional production volume-based method using direct labor dollars as the allocation base and one cost pool. Determine the overhead rate per direct labor dollar and the per unit overhead assigned to the strawberry cheesecake. Discuss the difference in cost allocations between the traditional method and the activity-based costing approach. Round to three decimal places.
