Job Cost Example Direct labor cost14,800 $14.60 per hour Factory overhead$248,492 Machine hours8,875 machine hours 6 Direct materials requisitioned$400 Direct labor hours 70 $15.20 per hour Machine-hours42 machine hours Sanja Enterprises uses job costing and applies overhead based on machine hours. Sanja’s budgeted annual information follows: Actual data for Job #178 Actual direct labor cost for all jobs for the entire year totaled $220,200. Actual annual manufacturing overhead cost was $247,000. Actual machine hours for all jobs for the entire year totaled 96,050. Show the calculation of the total cost of Job 178. POHR = $248,492 8,875 = $28.00 per machine hour DM$ 400 DL (70 x $15.20) 1,064 MOH ($28 x 42) 1,176 Total job cost$2,640
