2. Identify each of the costs with one of the following:
(a) Unit-level activities. (c) Product-level activities.
(b) Batch-level activities. (d) Facility-level activities.
Organize these classifications by division: Operations, Sales, Administrative.
3. Specify an appropriate cost driver for tracing costs associated with the various levels of activities to the next cost
objective or products, whichever is appropriate.
4. Glaser Health Products is interested in using activity-based costing to identify as many costs as possible with the
products. These costs will be used for planning and control decisions rather than for inventory valuation. The
controller decided that all operation costs will be related to products but only those sales and administrative costs that
are classified as unit-level, batch-level, or product-level costs
should be related to products. Using preliminary stage cost drivers, explain how individual items of costs will be
traced to activity groupings.
5. Using primary stage cost drivers, show how the costs should be related to products.
6. Explain why it is necessary to use preliminary stage and primary stage cost drivers
