7 Example Company makes Product A and Product B

8 Example – Traditional Costing The rate would be: – OH Rate = Overhead/Direct Labor Hours – $11,250/1,000 = $11.25 per hour. Applying overhead using this rate: – Product A: 400 hours x $11.25 = $4,500 – Product B: 600 hours x $11.25 = $6,750

9 Example – ABC Costing Direct Labor Machine Hours $1,000 2,000 1,500 $4,500 $ ,250 $2,500 $4, $4,250 # of Purchase Orders
