Activity Cost Pools
The number of meals served is the measure of activity for the Preparing Meals activity cost pool. The number of functions catered is used as the activity measure for the Arranging Functions activity cost pool.
Management would like to know whether the company made any money on a recent function at which 130 meals were served. The company catered the function for a fixed price of $11.00 per meal. The cost of the raw ingredients for the meals was $6.90 per meal. This cost is in addition to the costs of wages, supplies, and other expenses detailed above.
For the purposes of preparing action analyses, management has assigned ease of adjustment codes to the costs as follows: wages are classified as a Yellow cost; supplies and raw ingredients as a Green cost; and other expenses as a Red cost.
