Exercise 17-1
Wilkins Inc. has two types of handbags: standard and custom. The controller has decided to use a plantwide overhead rate based on direct labor costs. The president has heard of activity-based costing and wants to see how the results would differ if this system were used. Two activity cost pools were developed: machining and machine setup. Presented below is information related to the company’s operations.

Standard Custom
Direct labor costs \$48,200 \$114,000
Machine hours 1480 1120
Setup hours 110 440

Total estimated overhead costs are \$309,500. Overhead cost allocated to the machining activity cost pool is \$199,000, and \$110,500 is allocated to the machine setup activity cost pool.
