The manufacturing process is compost of those parts which are done by the machines as well as those parts that are done by human beings. Due to complexity of the joining of parts, the work has to be done by human beings which land the factory in a labour intensive class.

The raw materials used for making the motorcycles are the different types of metals. They are cut by machines into the various desired shapes and sizes and then cleaned and joined by human beings. Human beings perform some tasks like joining the parts physically hence it is direct labour. During manufacturing of overheads, different types of metals and in different shapes are required, machinery for cutting and moulding and enough power supply is needed. Technology for manufacturer is also crucial at this stage.

Recommendation and conclusion

It demands therefore that the organization uses a hybrid of both the job order and process for costing it product because the product is not only labour intensive but also capital intensive especially during manufacture of overheads.
