Problem 7 – Job Order Costing Jessica Company started operations on January 2, 20x6. The company manufactures custom products and uses a job order system. Overhead is allocated to jobs based on direct labour costs. The budgeted manufacturing overhead for 20x6 was $396,900 and the direct labour costs were budgeted at $567,000. At the end of 20x6, there were two jobs in work in process: Direct material cost Direct labour cost Job A605 $20,000 12,000 Job A608 $36,000 38,000

Actual manufacturing overhead for the year amounted to $350,000 and total direct labour charges for the year amounted to $550,000. The year-end finished good inventory balance was $175,000 and included direct labour costs of $48,000. Cost of goods sold for the year amounted to $1,750,000. Required 1. 2. 3.

The Process Costing System: Bread

...manufactured by continuous processing or by mass production methods, then the process costing system is used. For example, A bakery is an example of a manufacturer that uses this system Homogenous or identical products are used by this costing systems. And instead of using individual costs, it uses all cost of the units to average it out to per unit cost. Another example that the bakery uses the cost processing system is that the bakery has several departments that the product has to go through before it is released for sale. For example in the bread manufacturing industry the two main departments that the bread has to go through are the “Baking” or mixing and then the processing department. In the baking department, the ingredients of the bread are being mixed together to form the bread. In the processing department, the bread is placed in different molds to form the shape of the bread, cut and placed into packaging and then are ready for delivery. For instance direct materials are the costs in the first department. The direct materials would be the yeast, flour, mixers and ovens. In the second department, the costs are in the direct materials like the molds, blades, and packaging plastics. And costs such as labor, power, indirect materials etc. are processed between both departments. The process costing systems works like this in certain bread manufactures by accumulating the costs of each process, or “departments”. A day’s, weeks or years average unit cost is calculated......

Activity- Based Costing & Process Costing

...Activity- Based Costing & Process Costing Job Order Costing: 1. Many different jobs are worked on during each period, with each job having different production requirements. 2. Costs are accumulated by individual job. 3. Job cost sheet is the key document controlling the accumulation of costs by a job. 4. Unit costs are computed by job on the job cost sheet (Similarities between Job Order and Process Costing System, nd). Process Costing: 1. A single product is produced either on continuous basis or for long periods. All units of product are identical. 2. Costs are accumulated by departments. 3. The department production report is the key document showing the accumulation and disposition of costs. 4. Unit costs are computed by department on the department production report (Similarities between Job Order and Process Costing System, nd). The job order cost system is most suitable when the products differ in types of material and work performed. Thus, each product is made according to the customer's specifications and the price quoted is closely tied to estimated cost. Examples of types of companies which might use job order costing are printing companies and shipbuilding firms (Fletcher, nd). The process cost system is commonly used where products are manufactured under mass production methods or by continuous processing. Industries using process costs are paper, steel, chemicals, and textiles. Assembly-type processes such as washing machines and electrical......

Process Order Costing vs Job Order Costing

...Process Costing - The Hershey Company/ Kaiser Aluminum Process costing is used mostly in companies when converting raw materials into homogenous products. A single product is produced on a continuous basis and all units of the product are identical. Costs are computed by department where the materials, labor, or overhead costs are added to the product in the processing department. Our two companies, The Hershey Company and Kaiser Aluminum, convert raw materials to their finished products of chocolate and aluminum. The Hershey Company's main raw materials come from cocoa products such as cocoa liquor, cocoa butter and cocoa powder that is processed from cocoa beans. They continuously make certain chocolate products under their brand name or franchise. Under their annual report it states that their cost of sales represents the costs directly related to the manufacture and distribution of their products. These costs are the raw materials, packaging, direct labor, overhead, shipping and handling, and warehousing and distribution facilities. Their manufacturing overhead includes salaries, wages, utilities, maintenance and property taxes. This shows why The Hershey Company would use process costing because their costs are traced to only a few departments and there aren't significant differences among the costs of various products. They are continuously making large batches of chocolate products and use an assembly line of mixing, refining, molding and wrapping to do it. Kaiser......

...ch05.qxd 9/27/04 4:19 PM Page 174  CHAPTER Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q5 Q6 Job Costing In Brief Custom products and services, which are produced singly or in small batches, need to be valued for financial statements, tax reporting, and management monitoring. Job costing is an accounting method used to assign product costs to custom products or services. In job costing, direct costs are traced and overhead costs are allocated to individual jobs. Sometimes defects occur in custom products. Defective units can sometimes be reworked. The costs for both spoilage and rework need to be accounted for, as does the cost of scrap that arises from production. This Chapter Addresses the Following Questions: How are costs assigned to customized goods and services? How is overhead allocated to individual jobs? What is the difference between actual costing and normal costing? What are the uses and limitations of job cost information? How are spoilage, rework, and scrap handled in job costing? What are the quality and behavioral implications of spoilage? ch05.qxd 9/27/04 4:19 PM Page 175 BOMBARDIER: CUSTOM MANUFACTURING n 1942, the Canadian company L’AutoNeige Bombardier Limitée began manufacturing tracked vehicles for snow-covered terrain.

Target Costing Process profit margin is 32.26%. 4. Determine the target cost The target cost is arriving from subtracting the desired profit from the selling price. Management accounting can play important role in determining the target profit and target cost. Accountant can supply information needed to the management to support the analysis of the new product. After target cost is determined, functional cost analysis team is used to achieve the target cost. The team is a group activity typically involves employees from different department such as marketing, design, engineering, production, purchasing, and accounting. This requires them to bring together their knowledge and experience in the organisation to contribute to the cost reduction process. As an example:- Target cost = target selling price – desired profit = $20,740 – (32.26% x $20,740) = $20,740 – $6,898 Target cost = $13,842...

...different models for costing could be used in your company. It is important that you, at least, cover the following four models; process costing (batch costing), absorption costing, contribution costing, and ABC Process costing The company Danone doesn’t produce only one type of product but products lines. Thus, we can use this model if we take only one type of product that is produced in one local. For example, to produce bottles of water Volvic, there are variable costs (the raw material cost like plastic and caps, the energy cost) that depend on the volume and fixed costs (salaries cost, machine depreciation cost). If we know the production volume, all fixed costs and variable costs for a type of product (water bottles Volvic), we can calculate the price of a single product (one water bottle). Contribution costing This model can be used if we want to make a choice between two different products. For example, Danone wants to make a choice between yogurts of 50ml and yogurts of 75ml. What type of product must Danone choose to produce? The data about each bottle are: * Selling price: 1,5 Euros (50 ml) / 2 Euros (75 ml) * Variable relevant cost: 0,3 Euros (50 ml) / 0,5 Euros (75 ml) * Machine time per unit: 6 second (50ml) / 10 second (75ml) * Contribution : 1,2 Euros (50 ml) / 1,5 Euros (75 ml) * Contribution/sec: 0,2 yogurts of 50 ml per second and 0,15 yogurt of 75 ml per second Thanks to the contribution costing analysis, the......

Session 1 There is no one classification for all purposes: Cost Information is classified on the basis of Traceability for Cost Measurement. Variability for Decision making and Inventoriability for Inventory Valuation, again Cost Measurement. Other typical cost classifications in the context of Decision making are Relevant Costs, Sunk Costs, Opportunity cost, Incremental cost. Session 2 Methods of Costing are Industry Specific. Job Costing, Process Costing, Unit Costing, etc... Unit costing is generally used for large scale mass production products or services. Terms: Prime Cost,Works Cost, Cost of Productionr or Cost of Goods Manufactured, Cost of goods sold, Cost of Sale, etc...... Process costing determines the NORMAL PROCESS COST of a process in each period. Normal Process Cost = Total cost of process in excess of realisable value of Normal loss DIVIDED by Normal Output[which is Input less normal loss]!!! Abnormal loss and Abnormal gain output are always valued at the Normal Cost. Session 3 How do Volumes impact Revenues, Costs and Profit. Terminology to understand: BEP(single product and multiple product], MOS,PVR or CMR . the meaning, and application of these numbers to different Business applications..and may be in personal life too!

Fifo Method of Process Costing

...Process Costing: The First-In, First-Out Method 1 FIFO Method of Process Costing In this supplement to Managerial Accounting we will illustrate the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method of process costing using the data for MVP Sports Equipment Company, which was given in Exhibit 4–4 in Chapter 4 of the text. Unlike the weighted-average method, the FIFO method does not commingle costs from two or more accounting periods. As the illustration will show, the costs from each period are treated separately. Step 1: Analysis of Physical Flow of Units The physical flow of units is unaffected by the process-costing method used. Therefore, step 1 is identical under the weighted-average and FIFO methods. See Exhibit 4–5 in the text. Step 2: Calculation of Equivalent Units A table of equivalent units, under FIFO process costing, is presented in Exhibit 4–A.* It is identical to the table prepared under the weighted-average method except for one important difference. Under the FIFO method, the equivalent units of direct material and conversion represented by the March 1 work-in-process inventory are subtracted in the last row of the table. By subtracting the equivalent units in the beginning work in process, we are able to determine the new equivalent units of activity accomplished in March only. The 20,000 physical units in the March 1 work in process have all of their materials, so they represent 20,000 equivalent units of direct material. However, these units are only 10......

Siemens Emw Process Oriented Costing

...SIEMENS EMW (A) PROCESS – ORIENTED COSTING The case brings out the fact that traditional cost accounting methods are misleading where there is diversity in the no of products manufactured. The case highlights the importance of Process-Oriented Costing approach. The cost structure of the firm suggests that the production related and support related overheads form 33.0 and 26.0 percent of total costs. Since the firm manufactured almost 10,000 different types of motors, allocation of support related overhead costs can be crucial for the operation of the firm. Table 1.

Methods and techniques of with relevant industrial examples? COST The cost is defined as the amount which is paid or given up to get something or to achieve the objective of the business. In business the objective may be to make a product, to provide a particular service and so on. Cost is usually a monetary valuation of effort, material, resources, time and utilities consumed risks incurred, and opportunity forgone in production and delivery of a good or service. The costs incurred by a business may be classified in various ways and one important way is according to how they behave in relation to changes in the volume of activity. There are: Based on behavior two types of cost are there 1.FIXED COST: those are fixed when changes occur to the volume of activity. Ex: the salary of employees, rent… 2.VARIABLE COST: these are cost which vary according the volume of activity. Ex: cost of raw materials used in manufacturing a product. DIFFERENT TYPES OF COST WITH EXAPLES * SEMI-FIXED(SEMI-VARIABLE )COST: In some cases, particular costs have an element of both fixed and variable cost.

Abc & Process Costing Unit 3 (Ip) 05-11-2012

...Activity-based & Process Costing Unit 3 (IP) AIU Online Virtual Campus 05-11-2012 Abstract The discussion on this paper will be about a ski company that is considering branching out their company by either buying or producing some manufactured goods to boost their business during the winter months. This ski company produces and sells an exceedingly victorious profile of water skis, but are studying about the most current intersect-country skis. If this company decides on obtaining the strip wanted or they can produce the bindings for their skis to switch them into snow skis for the winter then they would need to know whether they are gaining or losing profits for the company. If gaining the profits then the company will need to expand the business, but if losing the profits then they will need to go back to step one and look to see if they did not jump before the gun on a much bigger step than they should have taken. Activity-based & Process Costing A collection of techniques and tools can identify with how management’s decisions can affect costs through a cost management system (CMS). The CMS computes the organizations activities in performance and by the costs of resources, in order to access the change in costs in the business activities. This system can provide to your business an aggregate measure of inventory value and the manufactured cost of goods on the external reports that are submitted to the investors, creditors, plus other external stakeholders that...
