variable costing as a basis of additional compensation, accounting homework help

Question description

Stellar Packaging Products uses absorption costing to compute additional compensation eligibility for managers.  In December, Stellar Packaging Products’ controller, Robin Simmons, noted that a considerable production overrun was experienced, resulting in increased ending inventories for its major customer, Estrella Coffee Company. Simmons approached Frank Moses, the production manager, regarding these facts. Moses indicated that indeed, the production overrun was deliberate and completed in order that more overhead application would occur in December, and “everyone would make their year-end bonus.”Would the situation have changed if the company used variable costing as a basis of additional compensation? Why or why not?For this discussion:Support your position.Select two peer posts and comment on the content of their posts. Does your selection differ from that of your peers? If so, how does that response contrast to your own?Peer Post !:Absorption Costing is a GAAP compliant method of accumulating costs involved in a production process and assigning the costs to an individual product (Garrison, Noreen, & Brewer, 2015).  A given product has many fixed and variable costs, but under absorption costing, they are not expenses when the company pays for them (Garrison et al, 2015).  Instead, they remain in inventory as a tracked asset until the product is sold; then it is listed as cost of goods sold (Garrison et al, 2015).  The advantages of absorption costing is that it given a more accurate view of net profitability and is especially helpful when a company manufactures product during a time frame but does not sell them (Maverick, 2015).  It is also the most standardized format and used by the most companies because the IRS requires its use and if companies use variable costing, they still have to comply with the IRS requirements of filing in a absorption costing format as well (Maverick, 2015).  The main disadvantage would be that the company has a tendency to “carry” fixed costs if the products are not sold in real time (Maverick, 2015).  This can lead to the company appearing to be more profitable that it actually is.Variable Costing is a non-GAAP compliant method of accumulating costs that varies with the output of production (Garrison et al, 2015).  These costs are more variable because they depend of the outcome of the company’s production volume for a given timeframe (Garrison et al, 2015).  Variable costs will go up if production volume rises and go down if production falls (Garrison et al, 2015).  The advantages to the variable costing method is that it allows a company to get an accurate break even and use cost value profit analysis (CVP) (Garrison et al, 2015).  This knowledge of break even can be helpful as companies are figuring out the profitability of a given line of production vs. a different line.  It provides an apples-to-apples comparison of profitability (Maverick, 2015).Based on the example question, it appears that by using absorption method alone, it had a net operating profit loss of $11,009.  It appears that having an element of variable costing methods would not allow the numbers to be worked to get to a bonus that Moses does not deserve.References:Garrison, G. H., Noreen, E. W., & Brewer, P. C. (2015). Managerial accounting (15th ed.). New York City, NY: McGraw-Hill Education.Maverick, J. B.
