Clear View usesnormal costing with two direct-cost categories (direct materialsand direct manufacturing labor) and two manufacturing overhead costpools (the machining department with machine-hours as theallocation base and the finishing department with directmanufacturing labor costs as the allocation base). The 2014 budgetfor the plant is as follows:


Machining Department Finishing Department
Manufacturing overhead costs $9,065,000 $8,181,000
Direct manufacturing labor costs $ 970,000 $4,050,000
Direct manufacturing labor-hours 36,000 155,000
Machine-hours 185,000 37,000

Prepare an overview diagram of Clear View’s job-costingsystem.

Direct materials used $13,000 $ 5,000
Direct manufacturing labor costs $ 900 $ 1,250
Direct manufacturing labor-hours 20 70
Machine-hours 140 20

Compute the total manufacturing overhead cost allocated to Job431.

Assuming that Job 431 consisted of 300 units of product, what isthe cost per unit?

Amounts at the end of 2014 are as follows:


Machining Department Finishing Department
Manufacturing overhead incurred $10,000,000 $7,982,000
Direct manufacturing labor costs $ 1,030,000 $4,100,000
Machine-hours 200,000 34,000

Why might Clear View use two different manufacturing overheadcost pools in its job-costing system?
