This amount is based on the number of sheets in a 4,200-pound bundle of sheet metal, which is the usual purchase quantity.

The foam pad that is put in the case costs $0.06, based on the number of pads that can be cut from a large roll of foam.

Production standards, based on engineering analysis recognizing attainable performance, provide for the manufacture of 1,000 pads by two workers in an eight-hour shift. The standard direct labor pay rate is $15 per hour.

Manufacturing overhead is applied to units produced using a predetermined overhead application rate of $16 per direct labor hour, of which $6 per hour is fixed manufacturing overhead.
