Solution:
To calculate textile finishing cost and finishing rate, below formula has to apply.
Finishing cost per kg,
Direct labor + Direct material + Direct expense + Direct overhead
= …………………………………………………………………....………… .... (1)
Total finishing production
Total Finishing Production Calculation:
Total production,
= Fabric input
= 400kg
Total Finishing Production Time Calculation:
Total finishing production time,
= Finishing process time
= 4 hours
= (4/8) shift
= 0.5 shift
Direct Labor Cost Calculation:
Operator wages,
= Number of labor × No. of shift × labor wage per shift
= 3×0.5× Rs. 200
= Rs. 300
Direct Material Cost Calculation:
Finishing chemical cost = Amount of chemical consumed × chemical price = 5× Rs. 250 = Rs. 1250
Chemical A cost = Amount of chemical consumed × chemical price = 4× Rs. 25 = Rs. 100
Chemical B cost = Amount of chemical consumed × chemical price = 2× Rs. 60 = Rs. 120
So,
Direct material cost is,
= (Rs. 1250 + Rs. 100 + Rs. 120)
= Rs. 1470
Direct Expense Cost Calculation:
Compacting,
= Fabric quantity × compacting rate per kg
= 400 × Rs. 8
= Rs. 3200
Overhead Cost Calculation:
In steam cost calculation,
= (Cost × 0.5 shift) / (30days × 3 shifts in a day) = {(30000 × 0.5)/90} = Rs. 167
In transport cost calculation,
= (Cost × 0.5 shift) / (30days × 3 shifts in a day) = {(20000 × 0.5)/90} = Rs. 112
In power cost calculation,
= (Cost × 0.5 shift) / (30days × 3 shifts in a day) = {(10000 × 0.5)/90} = Rs. 56
In other expenses cost calculation,
= (Cost × 0.5 shift) / (30days × 3 shifts in a day) = {(40000 × 0.5)/90} = Rs. 224
In salary cost calculation,
= (Cost × 0.5 shift) / (30days × 3 shifts in a day) = {(50000 × 0.5)/90} = Rs. 279
So,
Total overhead cost stands at,
= Rs. 167 + Rs. 112 + Rs. 56 + Rs. 224 + Rs. 279
= Rs. 838
Now, from equation01, we get,
Textile finishing cost per kg,
(Rs. 1470 + Rs. 300 + Rs. 3200 + Rs. 838)
= …………………………………………………………..
400
= Rs. 14.50
After adding 15% profit, textile finishing rate stands at
= {14.50/ (115%)}
= Rs. 17.10
