# Standard Costs and Operating

Performance Measures
Standard Costs
Standards are benchmarks or “norms” for
measuring performance. In managerial accounting,
two types of standards are commonly used.

## Quantity standards Price standards

## Examples: Firestone, Sears, McDonald’s, hospitals,

construction and manufacturing companies.
Standard Costs
Deviations from standards deemed significant
are brought to the attention of management, a
practice known as management by exception.

Price and Quantity Standards

## Price and quantity standards are

determined separately for two reasons:

##  The purchasing manager is responsible for raw

material purchase prices and the production manager
is responsible for the quantity of raw material used.

##  The buying and using activities occur at different times.

Raw material purchases may be held in inventory for a
period of time before being used in production.

A Graphic Approach

Let’s look at a

use ColaCo’s

In a standard
cost system:

Unfavorable Favorable
variances are equivalent variances are equivalent

## The sum of the overhead variances

equals the under- or overapplied

## Variable manufacturing overhead rate variance

VMRV = (AH × AR) – (AH × SR)
= \$100,000 – (88,000 hours × \$1.00 per hour)

= \$12,000 unfavorable

## Variable manufacturing overhead efficiency variance

VMEV = (AH × SR) – (SH × SR)
= \$88,000 – (84,000 hours × \$1.00 per hour)
= \$4,000 unfavorable

We will use information from the Glacier Peak Outfitters
example presented earlier in the chapter to illustrate journal
entries for standard cost variances. Recall the following:

Recording Labor Variances
Cost Flows in a Standard Cost System

## Inventories are recorded at standard cost.

Variances are recorded as follows:
 Favorable variances are credits, representing
savings in production costs.
 Unfavorable variances are debits, representing
excess production costs.
Standard cost variances are usually closed out
to cost of goods sold.
 Unfavorable variances increase cost of goods sold.
 Favorable variances decrease cost of goods sold.
