Work Center Burden Rates


(system) #1
I would like to thank those people that responded to my poll re Work
Center Burden rates. I received only a few responses this time. Here
are the results:

* How often to you up-date (or review the numbers) the Burden Rates
on your Work Centers?

1 – Annually
2 – Semi-Annually
2 – Monthly

* How seasonal is your production. For instance, our production hours
will vary by a factor of greater than 2 to 1 between our heaviest and
lightest months.

Most everyone indicated that they were not "seasonal"
although they
could expect brief periodic slow downs.

Another poll for the accounting types...

1) How often to you up-date (or review the numbers) the Burden Rates
on your Work Centers? Monthly, semi-annually, annually?

2) Also, how seasonal is your production. For instance, our
production hours will vary by a factor of greater than 2 to 1 between
our heaviest and lightest months.

Thanks in advance for your input, feel free to respond off-list.
I will post a summary of results when finished.
