Question Accounting is an art of recording, classifying &

Correct Answer True
Your Answer True
CHAP MATERIAL COST

1) EOQ = root (2AO) where


C*i

A = annual requirement
O = cost of placing an order
C = unit purchase price
i = carrying cost expenditure as a % of unit purchase price

2) No of orders = A
Order size
3) Carrying cost = (Order size) * (cost price) * (carrying cost in %)
2
4) Total cost = carrying cost + Ordering cost
5) Re-order level = Maximum lead time * Maximum usage
6) Maximum level = Reorder level + Reorder quantity – (Minimum Usage * Minimum
lead time )
7) Minimum level = Reorder level – (Normal lead time * Normal Usage)
8) Average level = (Max. level + Min. level)
2
Or
Safety stock + (Max. level or EOQ)
2
9) Danger level = Normal Usage * lead time for emergency purchases

CHAP LABOUR COST

A] Time Rate System:


1) High Wage Plan
2) Differential Time rate
Efficiency Normal day rate
Upto 80% Re 1 (Normal rate)
Between 80% - 90% Rs 1.25
Between 90% - 100% Rs 1.40
Between 100% - 125% Rs 1.50

B] Payment by Results
a) Straight Piece Rate System
b) Piece Rate with Guaranteed Time Rate
c) Differential Piece Rate System:

Efficiency Piece rate


Upto 83.% Normal piece rate
Between 83% - 100 % 10% above normal piece rate
Above 100% 30% above normal piece rate

The above is again differentiated into


1) Taylor Differential Piece Rate
2) Merrick Differential Piece Rate:
Efficiency Piece rate
Upto 83.% Normal rate
Between 83% - 100 % 110% above normal rate
Above 100% 130% above normal rate

3) Gantt Task Bonus System –


It is a combination of time rate and piece rate and provides for minimum time rate payment.
The wage structure may be fixed as below:

Output below standard Minimum time rate payment


Output at standard Time wages + some increase in wage rates
Output above standard High piece rate for entire output

C] Individual Incentive Systems:

1) Halsey Premium System –


(AR * HR) + {(SH – AH) * HR} (assuming 50% - 50% sharing between the
2 worker and employer)

2) Halsey – Weir Premium System -


1/3:2/3 ratio between worker and the employer

3) Rowan Premium System –


(AH * HR) {1 + SH – AH}
SH

D] Other methods of Premiums:


1) Barth Premium System –

Wages = HR * root (SH * AH)


Applicable only for beginners or apprentices

2) Emerson’s Efficiency Bonus System –

Wages = {AH * HR + Bonus % of AH * HR}


Efficiency Bonus
Upto 63.333% No bonus
66.333% - 100% Increases from 20% to 100%
Above 100% 20% + 1% bonus increase in every  in
efficiency
Eg. 101%  21% bonus
120%  30% bonus
120%  40% & so on

Suitable for non- efficient workers for improving their efficiency


Calculation for efficiency % :
On Time basis - On Output basis –
SH * 100 AH * 100
AH SH

3) Bedaux Point System –


SH is divided into standard minutes & each standard minute is called Bedaux point or B.

Wages = AH * HR + 75% of Bs * HR (B’s = no of Bs’ saved)


60

4) Accelerating Premium System –


Here incentive increase in a faster rate with an increase in output.
Y = 0.8 X 2 where
Y = earnings and X = efficiency
Now Earnings = (Basic wages + bonus) in % [for eg. If earnings = 1.25 then 125% =
100 % basic wages + 25 % bonus]
Basic wages = AH * HR
Bonus = % of basic wages

5) Baum Differential Plan –


Also called Milwankee Plan. It is a combination of Taylor Differential Piece rate + Halsey
System

6) Diemer System –
It is a combination of Halsey System + Gantt System

Measurement of Labour Turnover:


1] Separation Method:
No. of separations * 100
Average no of workers

2] Replacement Method:
No. of replacements * 100
Average no of workers

3] Flux Method:
No. of separations + No of replacements * 100
Average no of workers

Treatment of Idle time:


(Read all the cases)
case III
When idle time is normal and uncontrollable then, if attended time = x, time booked = y and
labour cost = l then
Idle time = lx /y
CHAP OVERHEAD COSTS
1] Direct Material Cost % Rate:
Amount of overheads to be absorbed * 100
Direct Material Cost

2] Direct Wages Cost % Rate:


Amount of overheads to be absorbed * 100
Direct wages Cost

3] Prime Cost % Rate:


Amount of overheads to be absorbed * 100
Prime Cost

4] Labour Hour Rate:


Amount of overheads to be absorbed * 100
Labour hours required for production

5] Machine Hour Rate:


Amount of overheads to be absorbed * 100
No. of Machines hours

Eg. period Overheads Actual Remarks


Absorbed (Rs) Overheads (Rs)

I 7500 9000 Under absorption

II 10000 8000 Over absorption
