As part of its cost control program, Tracer Company

As part of its cost control program, Tracer Company uses a standard costing system for all manufactured items. The standard cost for each item is established at the be- ginning of the fiscal year, and the standards are not revised until the beginning of the next fiscal year. Changes in costs, caused during the year by changes in direct materials or direct labor inputs or by changes in the manufacturing process, are recognized as they occur by the inclusion of planned variances in Tracer’s monthly operating budgets.The following direct labor standard was established for one of Tracer’s products, effective June 1, 2007, the beginning of the fiscal year:Assembler A labor (5 hrs. @ $10)$ 50Assembler B labor (3 hrs. @ $11)33Machinist labor (2 hrs. @ $15)30Standard cost per 100 units$113The standard was based on the direct labor being performed by a team consisting of five persons with Assembler A skills, three persons with Assembler B skills, and two persons with machinist skills; this team represents the most efficient use of the company’s skilled employees. The standard also assumed that the quality of direct materials that had been used in prior years would be available for the coming year.For the first seven months of the fiscal year, actual manufacturing costs at Tracer have been within the standards established. However, the company has received a significant increase in orders, and there is an insufficient number of skilled workers to meet the increased production. Therefore, beginning in January, the production teams will consist of eight persons with Assembler A skills, one person with Assembler B skills, and one person with machinist skills. The reorganized teams will work more slowly than the normal teams, and as a result, only 80 units will be produced in the same time period in which 100 units would normally be produced. Faulty work has never been a cause for units to be rejected in the final inspection process, and it is not expected to be a cause for rejection with the reorganized teams.Furthermore, Tracer has been notified by its direct materials supplier that lower quality direct materials will be supplied beginning January 1. Normally, one unit of direct materials is required for each good unit produced, and no units are lost due to defective direct materials. Tracer estimates that 6 percent of the units manufactured after January 1 will be rejected in the final inspection process due to defective direct materials.Required:1. Determine the number of units of lower-quality direct materials that Tracer Company must enter into production in order to produce 47,000 good finished units.2. How many hours of each class of direct labor must be used to manufacture 47,000 good finished units?3. Determine the amount that should be included in Tracer’s January operating budget for the planned direct labor variance caused by the reorganization of the direct labor teams and the lower-quality direct materials.

Herzing ANATOMY sc 205 This week’s lessons took us on a tour of the Digestive

This week’s lessons took us on a tour of the Digestive System and helped us get familiar with central concepts in Nutrition. We know that many diseases have a nutritional / dietary component. We’ll use this week’s discussion to explore these conditions and the evolution of their treatment. 1. Select a disease with a significant nutritional component. How has the treatment of your selected disease changed in the modern medical office? Remember to be creative and look beyond just Obesity and Diabetes. 2. How can medical personnel assist patients who suffer from diseases with a nutritional component? 3. Consider the treatment protocols for diseases with nutritional components or complications. Would you try to treat the symptoms, disease processes, or nutritional components first? Explain your decision. At least one external source is required with information researched, summarized, and cited using APA format.
