I have answered part A and B, but I am lost as to what I need to put on part C and D. Thanks

28. Natural Gardens make recyclable pots for plants and uses JIT to manage inventories and production. The following are standards for a typical one-gallon pot:

__Annual Material Standards __

32 ounces of Component X x $0.02 $0.64

2 ounces of Component Y x $0.05 __$0.10__

__$0.74__

__ __

__Current Material Standards __

27 ounces of Component X x $0.02 $0.54

4 ounces of Component Y x $0.05 __$0.20__

__$0.74__

In-house experiments indicated that changing the material standard would make the pots stronger, so the company issued an engineering change order for the product in February; this ECO established the current material standards. March production was 8,000 pots. Usage of raw material (all purchased at standard price) in March was 220,000 ounces of Component X and 31,000 ounces of Component Y.

- a. Calculate the material quantity variance. Annual standard Component X (32 ounces x 0.02) 0.64 Component Y (2 ounces x 0.05)
__0.10____0.74__Current standard Component X (27 ounces x 0.02) 0.54 Component Y (4 ounces x 0.05)__0.20____0.74__Production during month__8,000__Usage during month Component X (220,000 x 0.02) 4,400 Component Y (31,000 x 0.05)__1,550__Total cost of material used__5,950__Material quantity variance Component X (8,000 x 27 x .02) 4,320 Component Y (8,000 x 4 x .05)__1,600__Material cost at current standard 5,920 Actual material cost__(5,950)__Material quantity variance__$ 30 F__ - b. Calculate the ECO variance.Engineering change variance for material Component X (8,000 x 32 x .02) 5,120 Component Y (8,000 x 2 x .05)
__800__Material cost at annual standard 4,320 Material cost at current standard__(5,920)__ECO variance__1,600 U__ - c. Summarize the company?s effectiveness in managing March production costs.
- d. Comment on the circumstances in which a company would institute an ECO that results in the expected product cost being unchanged.

Part C:

If company follow exact current material standard then its use of Component X would have been

216,000 ounces (27 x 8,000) and 32,000 ounces of Component Y (4 x 8,000) with a total cost of...
