a. Why must overhead be considered a product cost under generally accepted accounting principles?

b. Ryan Company makes plastic dog carriers. The manufacturing process is highly automated and the machine time needed to make any size crate is approximately the same. Ryan’s management decides to begin producing plastic lawn furniture and, to do so, two additional pieces of automated equipment are acquired. Annual depreciation on the new pieces of equipment is $38,000. Should the new overhead cost be allocated over all products manufactured by Ryan? Explain.
