types of cost classification13
Types of Cost Classification
  • Direct cost – traceable to a cost object
      • Material
      • Labor
  • Indirect cost – are incurred for the benefit of more than one cost object
      • Maintenance
      • Utilities
  • Direct –
    • cost of materials that are an integral part of the product
  • Indirect –
    • Cost of materials that are not a significant portion of the total product cost
  • Direct
    • Cost of wages of employees who are directly involved in the converting materials into the manufactured product
  • Indirect
    • Labor that do not enter directly into the manufacture of a product
factory overhead
Factory Overhead
  • Costs other than direct materials cost and direct labor costs
    • Manufacturing overhead
    • Factory burden
    • Depreciation
    • utilities
manufacturing formulas
Manufacturing Formulas:
  • Prime Costs

= Direct Material + Direct Labor

  • Conversion Costs

= Direct Labor + Factory Overhead

  • Example: Suppose that direct materials are $5,000, direct labor is $4,000 and factory overhead is $3,000, what are prime costs and conversion costs?
  • Prime costs = direct material + direct labor
  • = $5,000 + 4,000
  • = $9,000
  • Conversion costs = direct labor + factory overhead
  • = $4,000 + $3,000
  • = $7,000
  • Example: Suppose the direct materials are $3,000, prime costs are $5,000, conversion costs are $9,000, and factory overhead is $7,000. What are direct labor costs?
  • Prime costs = Direct materials + Direct Labor
  • $5,000 = $3,000 + DL
  • $2,000 = DL
  • Conversion costs = Direct labor + Factory overhead
  • $9,000 = $2,000 + FO
  • $7,000 = FO
Product costs

Direct materials, direct labor, and factory overhead
