Hi All

I have got answer for PEV section 1, could anybody tell me, are they right?

5000 Kg
5000 Kg
100 Sq Metre
£15000
£7500
£1000
£6500

B

£800 A
£2250F
£600F
£1875 A
£550F
£150A

C

Standard cost of actual material for 9500 one KG Packs= £22325
Actual Cost of actual material for 9500 one KG Packs = £21750

D

Fixed Overhead Expenditure Varience = £1000 Adverse

Fixed Overhead Volume Varience = £ 1325A

Some detail report writing

a) £1400 £1500 £1600
b) £1500 £1400 £1750
C) £1.50 Kg £1.4 Kg 1.75 Kg index numbers 66.6 71.42 57.14

A) Production engineer talking about idel standard

Which is not possible in this situation because in a week long trail production per labour was 800 jars and if somthing happen like machine broke down, disruption etc production was only 600 jars.

Labour may think 600 jars target easy to achieve and it could be lost of labour time and afact their effiiciency and if they achieved 800 jars target than it could be a favourable capacity. so company sould make practical standar so that it does not effact labour efficiency and capacity and profitable for company s interst.

The only thing here i dont agree with is Task 1.3b as they gave you new seasonal variations to work to.

1750 is the differrence

That will be balance on material alone 30000-6500(budget fixed overhead)=23500
29250-7500(fixed overhead)= 21750 and the difference this 2 is 1750

Tell me how you balance

i got 325a for the volume variance - should it have been 1325a?
• Registered Posts: 123 Dedicated contributor 🦉
Options
I did 4750kgs x 3
4750kgs x 1.50
95sqmtrs x £15

That totals to £22325. Standard material cost for 9500 units

Surely the index numbers are wrong.. they should have all been above 100??
• Registered Posts: 465 Dedicated contributor 🦉
Options
I thought that with the index, but the lower index was the only one which would give the current figures values
anywhere near the march price.

You thought what I said or agree with the earlier posts?

How can you guys remember every answer you put!!!?
• Registered Posts: 465 Dedicated contributor 🦉

Sorry I mean thought index should be over 100. But I thought they wanted to compare the recent price to the March 09 one so I went for the below 100 figure.
