Posson Catering uses two measures of activity, jobs and meals, in the cost formulas in its budgets and performance reports. The cost formula for catering supplies is $210 per month plus $96 per job plus $20 per meal. A typical job involves serving a number of meals to guests at a corporate function or at a host's home. The company expected its activity in March to be 20 jobs and 162 meals, but the actual activity was 17 jobs and 164 meals. The actual cost for catering supplies in March was $4,990.
