Hi., I ma back :). I have done your assignment and let me know if you have questions :)
Due Date…..June 29, 2018
Fan’s managerial accountant, Yi-Fan, is classifying the company’s costs according to their
behaviour to prepare next year’s budget. Therefore, the cost object is the entire company. Fan
produces and sells aluminum beverage cans, such as those used for soft drinks. You may find
the following facts about Fan’s operation useful in responding to this problem:
Production machines must be cleaned monthly, regardless of the amount of use.
The more cans produced, the more lubrication is needed.
Chen’s monthly production and sales volume is usually at least 1,000 cans, but
can be as much as 5,000 cans depending on demand.
Material handling costs include depreciation on equipment and fuel for loaders.
Cans are packaged into 100-unit groups prior to sale.
Research and development costs vary between $10,000 and $10,500 per month
The factory maintenance costs vary between $6,000 and $6,500 monthly.
Chen’s staff level is constant at 25 people, who are all paid salaries.
Raw materials are purchased based on expected production levels.
Sales commissions (based on a per-case amount) are included in marketing
Yi-Fan has classified the costs into three categories: fixed, variable, and mixed.
Place an X in the appropriate column of the table below to indicate the most likely
behaviour of each cost:
Oil to lubricate the machines
Salary of the plant manager
Annual subscription to a trade journal
Vacation pay for salaried production
