overhead rate in a process-costing system?

Predetermined overhead rates are not used in a process-costing system.

If direct labor hours is the cost driver, direct labor and manufacturing overhead may be combined into the single element of conversion cost.

If direct material cost is the cost driver, direct labor and direct materials may be combined into the single element of prime cost.

Cost drivers are irrelevant in process-costing systems.

If direct labor cost is the cost driver, direct labor and manufacturing overhead may be combined into the single element of conversion cost.
50. Many traditional costing systems:

write off manufacturing overhead as an expense of the current period.

use a host of different cost drivers (e.g., number of production setups, inspection hours, orders processed) to improve the accuracy of product costing.

trace manufacturing overhead to individual activities and require the development of numerous activity-costing rates.

combine widely varying elements of overhead into a single cost pool.

produce results far superior to those achieved with activity-based costing.
