In 2014, Schultz manufactured25,000 units of the Royale and10,000 units of the Majestic. The overhead rate of $38 per direct labor hour was determined by dividing total expected manufacturing overhead of $7,600,000 by the direct labor hours 200,000 for the two models

 

 

Under traditional costing, the gross profit on the models was: Royale $552 or ($1,600 – $1,048) and Majestic $590 or ($1,300 – $710)  Because of this difference, management is considering phasing out the Royale model and increasing the production of the Majestic model.

 

 

Before finalizing its decision, management asks Schultz’s controller to prepare an analysis using activity-based costing (ABC). The controller accumulates the following information about overhead for the year ended December 31, 2014.
