Order Essay

Manufacturing overhead is applied to production by multiplying actual direct labor or machine hours worked during the year and predetermined overhead rate computed at the beginning of the year. It is shown as follows:

Predetermined Overhead Rate = (Estimated Manufacturing Overhead cost / Estimated total units in the allocation base)

Predetermined Overhead rate = $900,000 / 150,000 machine hours

Predetermined Overhead rate = $6 per machine hour

Manufacturing overhead applied to production = Actual machine hours * Predetermined overhead rate

Manufacturing overhead applied to production = 160,000 hours * $6 per hour

Manufacturing overhead applied to production = $960,000
