Process Costing System
Learning Goal: I’m working on a accounting multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Mirror Products manufactures mirrors and uses a standard process costing system.
The following production and cost data are based on June 2022. This information represents the standard cost of one unit:
|Total manufacturing cost||19.00SAR|
|Beginning WIP||20,000 units (100% DM; 80% conversion)|
|Started in June||180,000 units|
|Completed in June||140,000 units|
|Ending WIP||??? (100%DM 60% conversion)|
|Actual costs for June:|
|Total actual cost||3,500,000SAR|
1. Prepare an equivalent unit of production schedule.
2. Prepare a cost of production report and assign costs to goods transferred and to inventory.
3. Compute the direct material variance and conversion cost variance. Show all work. What is the total amount to be booked against the cost of goods sold?
4. Based on your analysis above, does this product appear to be a good source of income for the firm? Should it continue operations? Why or why not?
Answers should be in excel sheet
