Allocation of Costs
Analyze the following scenario: Jump Hospital currently allocates all maintenance department costs based on departmental square feet. However, the manager of the pharmacy department has suggested that an ABC approach be used for the portion of the maintenance department costs that relate to repairing equipment. Her contention is that the pharmacy has relatively little equipment that breaks. However, it must subsidize many high-tech departments that require expensive equipment repairs. Using the tables below, calculate the maintenance cost assigned to the pharmacy using the existing method and using an ABC approach. Clearly label your calculations in your analysis.

Volume (Square Feet) 100,000 800
Labor Hours 10,000 4000 14,000
Labor Cost/Hour $12.00 $18.00 $13.71
Supplies $20,000 $80,000 $100,000
Administration $15,000
