The total direct materials mix variance can also be computed as the sum of the direct materials mix variances for each input:

= × ×

Echol=(0.28 – 0.30)× 86,000 × \$0.20  =  – 0.02 × 86,000 × \$0.20= \$344 F

Protex=(0.18 – 0.20)× 86,000 × \$0.45  =  – 0.02 × 86,000 × \$0.45=  774 F

Benz=(0.42 – 0.40)× 86,000 × \$0.15  =     0.02 × 86,000 × \$0.15=  258 U

CT40=(0.12 – 0.10)× 86,000 × \$0.30  =     0.02 × 86,000 × \$0.30=  516 U

Total direct materials mix variance\$344 F

3.Energy Products used a larger total quantity of direct materials inputs than budgeted, and so showed an unfavorable yield variance.  The mix variance was favorable because the actual mix contained more of the cheapest input, Benz, and less of the most costly input, Protex, than the budgeted mix.  The favorable mix variance offset some, but not all, of the unfavorable yield variance––the overall efficiency variance was unfavorable. Energy Products will find it profitable to shift to the cheaper mix only if the yield from this cheaper mix can be improved.  Energy Products must also consider the effect on output quality of using the cheaper mix, and the potential consequences for future revenues.
