Cost accounting Project

Cost accounting ProjectProject Introduction:In this project, you will be required to attempt a number of problems. The concepts, including cost-volume-profit (CVP) analysis, decision making, job costing with focus on service industry, and budgeting, and flexible budget variances will be applied in separate problems.Course Objectives Tested:1. Analyze how cost accounting supports management.2. Make decisions using cost-volume-profit (CVP) analysis.3. Evaluate methods to accurately determine job costs.4. Evaluate the advantages of a budget in managing operations and developing a strategic plan.5. Compute price variances and efficiency variances for direct-cost categories.6. Analyze variable and fixed overhead cost variances.PROJECT SUBMISSION PLANDescription/Requirements of ProjectEvaluation CriteriaAssessment Preparation Checklist:To prepare for this project, you should:Read through this weeks online lesson, which will help you review the important concepts covered in Weeks 16.Read the following chapters from your textbook, Cost Accounting:o Chapter 1, pp. 219o Chapter 2, pp. 2651o Chapter 3, pp. 6286o Chapter 4, pp. 98126o Chapter 5, pp. 138164o Chapter 6, pp. 182211o Chapter 7, pp. 226249o Chapter 8, pp. 262289Did you show step-by-step calculations for each problem requirement assigned?Did you provide detailed professional analysis with numbers as required?BU315Project2Description/Requirements of ProjectEvaluation CriteriaTitle: Cost AccountingMixed BagProblem 1:AquaPure produces two models of water filters.Model 1 attaches to the faucet and cleans all water that passes through the faucet. This model is sold for $80 and has variable costs of $20.Model 2 is a pitcher-cum-filter that only purifies water meant for drinking. This model is sold for $90 and has variable costs of $25.AuqaPure sells two faucet models for every three pitchers sold. Fixed costs equal $945,000.Task:1. What is the breakeven point in unit sales and dollars for each type of filter at the current sales mix?2. AquaPure is considering buying new production equipment. The new equipment will increase fixed cost by $181,400 per year and will decrease the variable cost of the faucet and the pitcher units by $5 and $9 respectively. Assuming the same sales mix, how many of each type of filter does AquaPure need to sell to break even?3. Assuming the same sales mix, at what total sales level would AquaPure be indifferent between using the old equipment and buying the new production equipment? If total sales are expected to be 30,000 units, should AquaPure buy the new production equipment?Problem 2:Books n Books Inc. schedules book signings for science fiction authors and creates e-books and books on CD to sell at each signing. The company uses a normal-costing system with two direct cost pools, labor and materials, and one indirect cost pool, general overhead. General overhead is allocated to each signing based on 80% of labor cost. Actual overhead equaled allocated overhead in March 2010. Actual overhead in April was $1,980. All costs incurred during the planning stage for a signing and during the signing are gathered in a balance sheet account called Signings inBU315Project3Description/Requirements of ProjectEvaluation CriteriaProgress (SIP). When a signing is completed, the costs are transferred to an income statement account called Cost of Completed Signings (CCS).

Calculate under/overallocated overhead at the end of April.4. Calculate the ending balances in SIP and CCS if the under/overallocated overhead amount is as follows:a. Written off to CCSb. Prorated based on the ending balances (before proration) in SIP and CCSc. Prorated based on the overhead allocated in April in the ending balances of SIP and CCS (before proration)5.
