Budgeted costs of the operating the plant
for 10,000 to 20,000 hours:
Fixed operating costs per year $240,000
Variable operating costs $10 per hour
Practical capacity 20,000 hours per year
Budgeted long-run usage per year:
Lamp Division 800 hours × 12 months = 9,600 hours per year
Flashlight Division 450 hours × 12 months = 5,400 hours per year
Assume that practical capacity is used to calculate the allocation rates. Further assume that actual usage of the Lamp Division was 700 hours and the Flashlight Division was 400 hours for the month of June.
