# Presenting costing information | Accounting homework help

Using what you have learned this week about activity-based costing and effective communication, you will put together a brief presentation, responding as a business manager to a hypothetical scenario.

In your initial post, imagine that you are a business manager. Your board of directors has requested that you report on the significance and impact of utilizing activity-based costing (ABC) over a single plant-wide predetermined overhead rate (POHR). Using your required readings this week, you will create a brief presentation for your investors analyzing the pros and cons of using ABC, including a comparison of at least two of the activity rates versus the single plant-wide POHR with calculations.

Here is the relevant information you need:

The product that you produce requires four different activities to complete.

The single plant-wide POHR is \$25 per unit, and we produced 10,000 units.

Activity 1: Design Team – The estimated time spent on new ideas is 15,000 hours; we have 4 members of the design team that are paid \$40,000 each.

Activity 2: Production Team – The estimated time spent producing the item is 30,000 hours, with 100,000 machine hours with associated costs of \$150,000, and we have 8 employees who work 40 hours a week, 52 weeks a year, and they are paid \$12 an hour.

Activity 3: Finishing Team – The estimated time spent finishing the product is 15,600 hours, with 20,000 machine hours with associated costs of \$75,000, and we have 10 employees who work 30 hours a week each and are paid \$20 an hour.
