I'm sure you have standards, don't ya? Well I sure hope so. In this video, I show you what a standard is in a manufacturing settings. Companies must set standards for all the metrics to make sure they are hitting their mark. I show other basic terms you must know for this chapter: Variances, Favorable or Unfavorable and Output. Check it out!

What is a Standard?

Remember Variances? Well if you haven't seen my lesson on Standards, please watch that first. In this video, I show you how Direct Materials Variances work. We go through the Materials Price Variance and Materials Efficiency Variance (Quantity Variance.) How much are companies paying for their materials? Are they Wasteful? Start taking notes as we go through formulas and helpful examples for each. Take a look! P.S. I only go through the Formulaic method, not Tabular.

This video is a continuation of part 2 problem. In part 2, we go through from A to Z, Materials Price Variance, Materials Efficiency or Usage Variance, Labor Rate Variance and Labor Efficiency Variance. Now, in this video, I show you how to calculate total variances and there is a good hypothetical question at the end. Check it out!
