Thursday, January 28 , 2016 Review of last class o Total manufacturing costs o Tools used Materials requisition form Employee time ticket Applied MOH o POHR= estimated total MOH/estimated activity Flow of costs and journal entries and use of t-accounts o Review key terms from reading Raw materials Any materials that go into the final product. When used in production, costs are transferred to the Work in Process inventory account as direct materials Debit direct and indirect materials separately, then credit raw materials Work in process Units of product that are only partially complete and will require further work before they are ready for sale to the customer. Labor costs are added directly and don’t flow through raw materials Account that debits labor hours Direct labor= work in process Indirect labor= manufacturing overhead Finished goods Completed units of product that have not yet been sold to customers Cost of goods manufactured Includes the manufacturing costs associated with the goods that were finished during the period. Amount transferred from Work in Process to Finished Goods o Total manufacturing cost= direct materials + direct labor + manufacturing overhead
