P10-20 SecuriDoor Corporation


You have just been hired by SecuriDoor Corporation, the manufacturer of a revolutionary new

garage door opening device. The president has asked that you review the company’s costing system

and “do what you can to help us get better control of our manufacturing overhead costs.” You

find that the company has never used a flexible budget, and you suggest that preparing such a

budget would be an excellent first step in overhead planning and control.

After much effort and analysis, you determined the following cost formulas and gathered the

following actual cost data for April:
