Besides, the direct labor cost allocation should be calculated from the production employees’ wage, since theoretically the direct labor cost consists of production employees’ wage, namely the employees engaging directly in production process.

2. Component of BOP calculation should consist of overall indirect production cost. The machine engineer salary should be included in the component of BOP calculation but not in the indirect labor salary cost.
