Managerial Accounting Sample Assignment


Managerial Accounting

Dillon Products manufactures various machined parts to customer specifications. The company uses a job-order costing system and applies overhead cost to the jobs on the basis of machine-hours. At the beginning of the year, it was estimated that the company would work 240,000 machine-hours and incur $4,800,000 in manufacturing overhead costs.

The company spent the entire month of January working on a large order for 16,000 custom-made machined parts. The company had no Work in process at the beginning of January. Cost data related to January follow:

  1. Raw materials purchases on account, $325,000 
  2. Raw materials requisitioned for production, $290,000 (80% direct materials and 20% indirect materials). 
  3. Labor cost incurred in the factor, $180,000 (one-third direct labor and two-thirds indirect labor) 
  4. Depreciation recorded on factory equipment, $75,000 
  5. Other manufacturing overhead cost was applied to production on the basis of 15,000 machine-hours actually worked during the month. 
  6. Manufacturing overhead cost was applied to production on the basis of $15,000 machine-hours actually worked during one month. 
  7. The completed job was moved into the finished goods warehouse on January 31 to await delivery to the customer. (in computing the dollar amount for this entry, remember that the cost of a completed job consists of direct materials, direct labor, and applied overhead. 

1. Prepare journal entries to record items (a) through (f) above [ignore item (g) for the moment]. 

2. Prepare T-accounts for Manufacturing Overhead and Work on Process. Post the relevant items from your journal entries to these T-accounts. 

3. Prepare a journal entry for item (g) above. 

4. Compute the unit product cost that will appear on the job cost sheet 



a.Raw Materials$325,000
Accounts Payable$325,000
b.Work in process$232,000
Manufacturing overhead$58,000
Raw Materials$290,000
c.Work in process$60,000
Manufacturing Overhead$120,000
Salaries and Wages Payable$180,000
d.Manufacturing Overhead$75,000
Accumulated Depreciation$75,000
e.Manufacturing Overhead$62,000
Accounts Payable$62,000
f.Work in process (15000 x ($4,800,000/240,000))$300,000
Applied Manufacturing overhead

Work in process Assume all are completed


Manufacturing Overhead











Balance $15,000

Work in progress







Balance   592,000

Work in process Assume all are completed


*Work in process (15000 x (4800000/240000)) = 300,000

Applied Manufacturing Overhead

Close the Manufacturing Overhead T account

*Actual Manufacturing Overhead = Indirect Material (58000) + indirect labour (120000) + depr (75000) + other Manufacturing overhead (62000)

= Actual Manufacturing Overhead = 315,000

*Applied Manufacturing Overhead = 300,000

=> Unapplied manufacturing overhead = 315,000 - 300,000 = $15,000

So, under applied Manufacturing overhead  needs to be booked

Under applied Manufacturing overhead

$ 15,000

Manufacturing overhead


Close Under Applied Manufacturing overhead to COGS


Cost of good sold under applied 


Manufacturing overhead


4 .Product cost/ unit =$ 592,000/16000 = $37
