Equivalent units of production in the first quarter Under the Weighted average units Cost inventory valuation method

1) Complete the equivalent units of production
2) Compute the unit cost of production
3) Apply the equivalent units to the ending inventory
Units completed+ Completed portion of WIP


Under FIFO method

Under FIFO method The equivalent units is compromised of three parts:
The completion of units of hand at the beginning of the period
The units started and completed during the period and the units partially completed at the end of the period.


The basic assumption of ABC costing is

Products or services require the performance of activities, and activities consume resources


Cost of goods sold for November is

Beginning blance of finished goods
Plus goods transferred to finished goods
Finished Goods Available
Ending finished goods


Goods Transferred to Finished goods

Beginning bal of WIP
Plus total manufacturing cost
Goods available to transfer
Goods transferred to finished goods(Squeeze)
Ending Balance of WIP


Under Weighted Average method what are the equivalent units

Units completed+ Ending WIP*Percentage completed


Treatment of normal and abnormal spoilage

Normal spoilage is inventoriable cost that is add to cost of inventory and abnormal spoilage is period cost that is expense it


ABC Costing

Multiple cause and effect releationships


To calculate the equivalent Units of production

The difference is how you treat the opening inventory and closing inventory opening inventory if they ask just the Total equivalent units of production
Work in process if given 60% then take 40% for calculation
Work in process
Given * 40 % to complete
Units started and completed:
Units completed and transferred out-
Units in beginning inventory ()
Add workin process at end
Equivalent units of production


Conversion cost unit of inventory

In the closing inventory take the percentage of COnversion cost inventory


Engineered cost

Fixed cost that bears an observable and known releationship to a quantifiable activity base


Target Cost

Is carefully predetermined standard cost


process costing

is a method of allocating production costs to products and services by averaging the cost over the total units produced. Costs are usually accumulated by department rather than job


Operation costing

is a hybrid system that allows the company to use job order product costing for some costs of production process costing for others


Activity costing

ABC costing is a system that accumulates all costs of overhead for each of the activities for the organization then allocate those activity cost to the cots objects that caused the activity
Activity based costing is an accounting system that collects financial and operating data on the underlying nature and extent of cost drivers.


Revolution occurring in cost accounting

Using cost drivers as application bases to increase the accuracy of reported product costs.
Using throughput time as an application base to increase awareness of the costs associated with legthned throughput time
Using several machine cost pools to measure product costs on the basis of time in a machine center


Overapplied overhead

overhead overapplied occurs when the amount of overhead applies exceeds the actual amount of overhead incurred


Plant wide rate

plant wide rates will propably be used if manufacturing operations are all automated, basically labor based, if manufacturing overhead is the largest component of the product


Direct costing or variable or marginal costing

capitalizes only the variable production costs to inventory when fixed cost are expensed


relevant cost

Relevant costs are costs which are relevant to a particular decision


product cost

Product cost is assigned to goods that were either purchased or manufactured for resale


period cost

period costs are costs that are expensed during a period.
