FPFM sample assessment 1

Hi all,

just wondering if anyone can help me with FPFM sample assessment question 1.3 © capacity variance

My calculation is some how wrong when I check the answers




3840000/480000=8 per hr

33500hrs* £8= £268000 adverse

I have figured that i must be doing calculation for the next part which is efficiency variance as the actual figure are the same but obviously favourable as it is efficiency.

please help :) thanks

    Well you've figured out the answer from the Q.B answers at the back, and I have just had a go as well and figured that Actual production of 67000 units*7.5hrs should have taken 502,500 hrs but may be the production staff were slow and perhaps took little longer to produce each unit ie. that is 8 hrs (536000hrs*67000units) therefore giving a variance of 33,500 hrs and if you times 33500@ std cost per hr of £8 it gives you an adverse variance of £268000. I also had to look at the answer at the back to try and work out. Hope this helps!
