order could be fulfilled using the company’s existing capacity without
affecting any other order.
Required:
a. What effect would accepting this order have on the company’s net
operating income if a special price of $368.00 per bracelet is offered
for this order?
b. Should the special order be accepted at this price?

• Question 3 Award: 6 out of 6.00 points
Barlow Company manufactures three products: A, B, and C. The
selling price, variable costs, and contribution margin for one unit of
each product follow:
Product
A B C
Selling price $240 $
320 $ 300

Total variable expenses 192 224
255
Contribution margin $ 48
$ 96 $ 45
Contribution margin ratio 20%
30% 15%
The same raw material is used in all three products. Barlow Company
has only 4,900 pounds of raw
material on hand and will not be able to obtain any more of it for
several weeks due to a strike in its
supplier’s plant. Management is trying to decide which product(s) to
concentrate on next week in filling its
backlog of orders. The material costs $9 per pound.
Required:
1. Compute the amount of contribution margin that will be
obtained per pound of material used in each product.
2. a. Compute the amount of contribution margin on each
product.
b. Which orders would you recommend that the company
work on next week—the orders for product A,product B, or product
C?
3. .A foreign supplier could furnish Barlow with additional
stocks of the raw material at a substantial premium over the usual
price. If there is unfilled demand for all three products, what is the
highest price that Barlow Company should be willing to pay for an
additional pound of materials?
• Question 4. Award: 6 out of 6.00 points
Imperial Jewelers is considering a special order for 24 handcrafted
gold bracelets to be given as gifts to members of a wedding party. The
normal selling price of a gold bracelet is $408.00 and its unit product
cost is $268.00 as shown below:
Direct materials $ 147
Direct labor 81
Manufacturing overhead 40
Unit product cost $ 268
Most of the manufacturing overhead is fixed and unaffected by
variations in how much jewelry is produced in any given period.
However, $11 of the overhead is variable with respect to the number
of bracelets produced. The customer who is interested in the special
bracelet order would like special filigree applied to the bracelets. This
filigree would require additional materials costing $10 per bracelet
and would also require acquisition of a special tool costing $457 that
would have no other use once the special order is completed. This
order would have no effect on the company’s regular sales and the
order could be fulfilled using the company’s existing capacity without
affecting any other order.
Required:
What effect would accepting this order have on the company’s net
operating income if a special price of $368.00 per bracelet is offered
for this order?
Should the special order be accepted at this price?

Q-1
Lehner Corporation has provided the following data from its activity-
based costing accounting system:
Indirect factory wages $552,000
Factory equipment depreciation $332,000
Distribution of Resource Consumption across Activity Cost Pools:
The "Other" activity cost pool consists of the costs of idle capacity

not assigned to products.
How much indirect factory wages and factory equipment depreciation
cost would NOT be assigned to
products using the activity-based costing system?
Q-2
For years, Worley believed that the 6% markup covered its selling
and administrative expenses and
provided a reasonable profit. However, in the face of declining profits
Worley decided to implement an
activity based costing system to help improve its understanding of
customer profitability. The company
broke its selling and administrative expenses into five activities as
shown below:
Activity Cost Pool (Activity Measure)
Customer deliveries (Number of deliveries)
Manual order processing (Number of manual orders)
Electronic order processing (Number of electronic orders)
Line item picking (Number of line items picked)
Other organizationsustaining costs (None)
Total selling and administrative expenses
Worley gathered the data below for two of the many hospitals that it
serves—University and Memorial
(both hospitals purchased a total quantity of medical supplies that had
cost Worley $36,000 to buy from its manufacturers):
Q-3
SecuriCorp operates a fleet of armored cars that make scheduled
pickups and deliveries in the Los
Angeles area. The company is implementing an activitybased
costing system that has four activity cost
pools: Travel, Pickup and Delivery, Customer Service, and Other. The
activity measures are miles for the
Travel cost pool, number of pickups and deliveries for the Pickup and
Delivery cost pool, and number of
customers for the Customer Service cost pool. The Other cost pool
has no activity measure because it is
an organization sustaining
activity. The following costs will be assigned using the activitybased
Costing
system:
Driver and guard wages
Vehicle operating expense
Vehicle depreciation
Customer representative salaries and expenses
Office expenses
Administrative expenses
Total cost
Q-4
Reasons a company may decide not to use ABC include
ABC tends to be more expensive to implement and maintain than the
traditional method.
ABC does not conform to external reporting requirements.
Some arbitrary allocations will still occur and managers who are not
knowledgeable in the limitations of an ABC system may make
mistakes in pricing and other critical decisions.
When a company shifts from a traditional cost system in which
manufacturing overhead is applied based on direct labor-hours to an
activitybased
costing system with batch-level and product-level costs, the unit
product costs of low volume products typically decrease whereas the
unit product costs of high volume products typically increase.
in traditional costing some manufacturing cost may be excluded from
product cost
Q-5
Which of the following would probably be the most accurate measure
of activity to use for allocating the costs associated with a factory's
Machine-hours
Direct labor-hours
Number of orders processed
Cost of materials purchased

Read the following scenario below:
Leighton Beridon owns "Jeemp Farms", located near Weimar, TX.
The farm produces pecan trees and sod. He has so many orders from
the Houston metropolitan area that he is able to sell all his inventory
each year, but he is not netting as much as he has in past years. His
daughter, LieslBeridon, came home from college over Thanksgiving
and mentioned ABC costing, which she learned about in her cost
accounting class. Mr.Beridon does not really know what ABC costing
is and is skeptical as to whether it would be right for his business. He
has hired your company to educate him about ABC and whether or
not he should use an ABC system. Over the next few weeks, you will
work towards helping Mr.Beridon decide what is the best route for his
company to take.
Shortly after you get started, Mr.Beridon sends you an email stating
that he feels he needs to discontinue the sod portion of his business
and focus on his tree sector, as he can charge more per tree than he
can charge for a foot of sod. He sends you an email stating, "I can
charge so much more for a tree than a foot of grass. Therefore, I am
planning on discontinuing the sod portion of the business immediately
as I make so much more on the trees! I am going to plant all my sod
acres with trees".
Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper plan for your boss explaining how
you will analyzeJeemp Farms.
Include the following:
• Prepare an argument convincing him to hold off on his decision
and see the results of your analysis first. As you have not had
time to do any analysis yet, you need to convince Mr.Beridon to
wait on whether to discontinue his sod business.
• Project potential benefits Mr.Beridon could gain from using an
ABC system.
• Explain how ABC creates these benefits.
Your team is planning on conducting an analysis of whether ABC
would be beneficial to Mr.Beridon. Create a process for conducting
this analysis.
Include the following:
1. How could you apply the data in the company's general ledger?
2. Determine questions to ask Mr.Beridon.
3. Determine other information to gather.
4. Explain how this additional information could help you in your
analysis?
5. Explain how you would decide on a final recommendation.

Mr.Beridon received your requests for information and returned data
which you have compiled in an Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet (see
document template). He also said, "We grow sod and trees at Jeemp
Farms. We sell the sod mainly to home builders in the area, although
we sell to some individuals who are purchasing square footages to re-
sod their yard. Many home builders will purchase to sod an entire
subdivision. They then may come back to us to purchase trees for the
yards. It really is a package deal. For builders like that, we are a one-
stop-shop. In most cases, however, we sell the trees to orchards and
some individuals. The purchaser is responsible for all shipping costs
related to their product.
"Our production process is different for each product. For sod, we
plant the seed, irrigate, cut, and roll the sod and then transport it. For
the trees, we plant the root stock, graft the tree, water until a particular
maturity and then dig it up and sell it. We inspect the plants as needed
to make sure we are producing a quality product that is disease-free.
"We have delayed purchasing some machinery that reduces time
for the planting of the trees because it is a large up-front cost and we
don't want to have a huge outlay of cash if our profits keep going
down".
"The grass does not require as much irrigation as the trees, as it is
at a lower elevation than the tree acres and is closer to the creek; it
gets a lot of the run off".
"Historically, we have always been able to sell everything we
produce. Hopefully, that will continue since Houston is expanding
rapidly".
Compute the product costs for the sod and trees under traditional and
ABC costing using the Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet.
Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper analyzingJeemp Farms and what
data and information you will consider.
Include the following:
• Describe any factors that could skew your results. In other
words, explain if there is one method of costing that could make
a product look more favorable than it really is.
• Justify whether Mr.Beridon should cut the sod portion of his
company.
• Justify whether Mr.Beridon should cut the tree portion of his
company instead.
• Describe other methods of analysis you could use to help you
come to a decision.
• Describe any other qualitative or quantitative factors or changes
to Mr.Beridon's business that might be relevant to Jeemp Farms
as they make the decision as to whether to use ABC and whether
to cut sectors.
• Determine any additional information you would need to have
before making a recommendation.

However, $11 of the overhead is variable with respect to the number of bracelets produced. The customer who is interested in the special bracelet order would like special filigree applied to the bracelets. This filigree would require additional materials costing $10 per bracelet and would also require acquisition of a special tool costing $457 that would have no other use once the special order is completed. This order would have no effect on the company’s regular sales and the order could be fulfilled using the company’s existing capacity without affecting any other order. Required: What effect would accepting this order have on the company’s net operating income if a special price of $368.00 per bracelet is offered for this order? Should the special order be accepted at this price? ******************************************************** * ACC 349 Week 2 Team Assignment Case Study BYP 2-2

He has so many orders from the Houston metropolitan area that he is able to sell all his inventory each year, but he is not netting as much as he has in past years. His daughter, LieslBeridon, came home from college over Thanksgiving and mentioned ABC costing, which she learned about in her cost accounting class. Mr.Beridon does not really know what ABC costing is and is skeptical as to whether it would be right for his business. He has hired your company to educate him about ABC and whether or not he should use an ABC system. Over the next few weeks, you will work towards helping Mr.Beridon decide what is the best route for his company to take. Shortly after you get started, Mr.Beridon sends you an email stating that he feels he needs to discontinue the sod portion of his business and focus on his tree sector, as he can charge more per tree than he can charge for a foot of sod.

He also said, "We grow sod and trees at Jeemp Farms. We sell the sod mainly to home builders in the area, although we sell to some individuals who are purchasing square footages to re- sod their yard. Many home builders will purchase to sod an entire subdivision. They then may come back to us to purchase trees for the yards. It really is a package deal. For builders like that, we are a one- stop-shop. In most cases, however, we sell the trees to orchards and some individuals. The purchaser is responsible for all shipping costs related to their product. "Our production process is different for each product. For sod, we plant the seed, irrigate, cut, and roll the sod and then transport it. For the trees, we plant the root stock, graft the tree, water until a particular maturity and then dig it up and sell it. We inspect the plants as needed to make sure we are producing a quality product that is disease-free. "We have delayed purchasing some machinery that reduces time for the planting of the trees because it is a large up-front cost and we don't want to have a huge outlay of cash if our profits keep going down". "The grass does not require as much irrigation as the trees, as it is at a lower elevation than the tree acres and is closer to the creek; it gets a lot of the run off".
