I just Bought a Question but there is no answer, I really need the answer now
This is the question:
Sue Jaski, supervisor of the Karaki Corporation’s Machining Department, was visibly upset after being reprimanded for her department’s poor performance over the prior month. The department’s cost control report is given below:
Karaki Corporation—Machining Department
Cost Control Report
For the Month Ended June 30
Machine-hours 45,000 47,000
Direct labor wages $ 78,750 $ 80,150 $ 1,400 U
Supplies 13,500 14,800 1,300 U
Maintenance 21,100 21,100 0
Utilities 17,550 17,750 200 U
Supervision 43,000 43,000 0
Depreciation 63,000 63,000 0
Total $ 236,900 $ 239,800 $ 2,900 U
“I just can’t understand all the red ink,” Jaski complained to the supervisor of another department. “When the boss called me in, I thought he was going to give me a pat on the back because I know for a fact that my department worked more efficiently last month than it has ever worked before. Instead, he tore me apart. I thought for a minute that it might be over the supplies that were stolen out of our warehouse last month. But they only amounted to a couple of hundred dollars, and just look at this report. Everything is unfavorable.”
Direct labor wages and supplies are variable costs; supervision and depreciation are fixed costs; and maintenance and utilities are mixed costs. The fixed component of the budgeted maintenance cost is $12,100; the fixed component of the budgeted utilities cost is $12,600.
