Similarities between job order and process costing

Both systems assign material, labor and overhead costs to products and they provide a mechanism for computing unit product costs.

Both systems use the same manufacturing accounts, including Manufacturing Overhead, Raw Materials, Work in Process, and Finished Goods.

The flow of costs through the manufacturing accounts is basically the same in both systems.

Similarities Between Job-Order and Process Costing


Differences between job order and process costing

Process costing is used when a single product is produced on a continuing basis or for a long period of time. Job-order costing is used when many different jobs having different production requirements are worked on each period.

Process costing systems accumulate costs by department. Job-order costing systems accumulated costs by individual jobs.

Process costing systems compute unit costs by department. Job-order costing systems compute unit costs by job on the job cost sheet.

Differences Between Job-Order and Process Costing


Quick Check a continuing basis or for a long period of time. Job-order costing is used when many different jobs having different production requirements are worked on each period.

Process costing is used for products that are:

a. Different and produced continuously.

b. Similar and produced continuously.

c. Individual units produced to customer specifications.

d. Purchased from vendors.

Processing departments
Processing Departments a continuing basis or for a long period of time. Job-order costing is used when many different jobs having different production requirements are worked on each period.

Any unit in an organization where materials, labor or overhead are added to the product.

The activities performed in a processingdepartment are performed uniformly on allunits of production. Furthermore, the output ofa processing department must be homogeneous. Products in a process costing environment

typically flow in a sequence from one departmentto another.

Equivalent units of production
Equivalent Units of Production (in journal entry form)

Equivalent units are the product of the number of partially completed units and the percentage completion of those units.

We need to calculate equivalent units because a department usually has some partially completed units in its beginning and ending inventory. These partially completed units complicate the determination of a department’s output for a given period and the unit cost that should be assigned to that output.


Equivalent units the basic idea

Equivalent Units – The Basic Idea

Two half completed products are equivalent to one complete product.

So, 10,000 units 70% completeare equivalent to 7,000 complete units.


Quick check
Quick Check (in journal entry form)

For the current period, Jones started 15,000 units and completed 10,000 units, leaving 5,000 units in process 30 percent complete. How many equivalent units of production did Jones have for the period?

a. 10,000

b. 11,500

c. 13,500

d. 15,000


Quick check1

a. 10,000

b. 11,500

c. 13,500

d. 15,000

10,000 units + (5,000 units × 0.30) = 11,500 equivalent units


Calculating equivalent units
Calculating Equivalent Units (in journal entry form)

Equivalent units can be calculatedtwo ways:

The First-In, First-Out Method – FIFO is covered in the appendix to this chapter.

The Weighted-Average Method – This method will be covered in the main portion of the chapter.


Learning objective 2
Learning Objective 2 (in journal entry form)

Compute the equivalent units of production using the weighted-average method.


Equivalent units of production weighted average method
Equivalent Units of Production (in journal entry form)Weighted-Average Method

The weighted-average method . . .

Makes no distinction between work done in prior or current periods.

Blends together units and costs from prior and current periods.

Determines equivalent units of production for a department by adding together the number of units transferred out plus the equivalent units in ending Work in Process Inventory.

Weighted average an example
Weighted-Average – An Example (in journal entry form)

Smith Company reported the following activity in the Assembly Department for the month of June:


Weighted average an example1

The first step in calculating the equivalent units is to identify the units completed and transferred out of Assembly Department in June (5,400 units)


Weighted average an example2

The second step is to identify the equivalent unitsof production in ending work in processwith respect to materialsfor the month (540 units) and adding this to the 5,400 units from step one.

Fifo vs weighted average method
FIFO vs. Weighted-Average Method (in journal entry form)

The FIFO method (generally considered more accurate than the weighted-average method) differs from the weighted-average method in two ways:

  • The computation of equivalent units.

  • The way in which the costs of beginning inventory are treated.

A Comparison of Costing Methods (in journal entry form)

In a lean production environment, FIFO and weighted-average methods yield similar unit costs.

When considering cost control, FIFO is superior to weighted-average because it does not mix costs of the current period with costs of the prior period.

Learning objective 11
Learning Objective 11 (in journal entry form)

To allocate service department costs to operating departments using the step-down method.


Step down method

Once a service (in journal entry form)department’s costsare allocated, other servicedepartment costsare not allocatedback to it.

Step-Down Method

Service Department

(Cafeteria)

Operating Department

(Machining)

Service Department

(Custodial)

Operating Department

(Assembly)


Step-Down Method (in journal entry form)

There are three key points to understand regarding the step-down method:

In both the direct and step-down methods, any

amount of the allocation base attributable to the

service department whose cost is being allocated is

always ignored.

 Any amount of the allocation base that is attributable to a service department whose cost has already been allocated is ignored.

Each service department assigns its own costs to operating departments plus the costs that have been allocated to it from other service departments.


Step-Down Method – An Example (in journal entry form)

We will use the same data used in the direct method example.


Step-Down Method – An Example (in journal entry form)

Allocate Cafeteria costs first sinceit provides more service than Custodial.
