Chapter 4 ± Systems Design: Process Costing
Processing department ± any location in an organization where work is performed on a product
and where materials, labour, or OH costs, are added to the product (one company could have
more than one ± sequential/parallel processing[after certain points some unites go through diff.
processing depts.- e.g. Coca-Cola])
- 2 essential features:
o activity performed in the dept. must be performed uniformly on all the units
passing through
o output of processing dept. must be homogeneous
- costs are traced to processing departments, NOT specific jobs
- separate WIP accounts for each processing department
- materials, labour, and OH can be added to any processing department
Transferred-in cost ± cost attached to products that have been received from a prior processing
dept.
JE:
Material costs ±
Dr. WIP ± dept 1 XXX
Cr. RM XXX
Dr. WIP ± dept 2 XXX
Cr. RM XXX
Labour costs ±
Dr. WIP ± Dept 1 XXX
Dr. WIP ± Dept 2 XXX
Cr. Salaries/wages payable XXX
OH ± (if production = stable and incurred uniformly over the year, actual OH costs can be
charged to products, if production = fluctuates or not incurred uniformly, POR used ± each dept.
has its own rate)
Dr. WIP ± dept 1 XXX
Dr. WIP ± dept 2 XXX
Cr. Manu. OH XXX
Completing cost flows ± (after processing)
1) Dr. WIP ± dept 1 XXX
Cr. WIP - dept 2 XXX
2) Dr. Finished Goods XXX
Cr. WIP ± dept 2 XXX
3) Dr. COGS XXX
Cr. Finished Goods XXX
1. FIFO Method (of computing equivalent units of production) ± method of accounting for cost
flows in a process costing process system in which equivalent units and unit costs relate only to
work done during the period (units/costs of prior periods are separated from units/costs of current
period)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
