Nature of Manufacturing Business

includes cost of merchandise purchased including the transportation cost of bringing merchandise to the business place.

involves the conversion of raw materials into finished goods through the application of labor and various factory cost incidental to the production of products.

Manufacturing business makes major investments in physical facilities such as factory site, factory building and acquisition of various machinery and equipment to be use in the factory.

Operating Cycle of Manufacturing Business

Phase 1: Buy Raw Materials

Phase 4: Collect from customers

Phase 2: Processed raw materials to finished goods (Raw materials + direct labor + factory overhead)

Phase 3: Sell finished goods to customers

Cost Elements of Manufacturing Business

3 Types of Production Costs: 1. Raw Materials 2. Direct Labor 3. Factory Overhead

Raw Materials

Direct Labor

Factory Overhead
The cost of factory overhead is called as manufacturing overhead cost. It refers to all indirect materials, indirect labor and other miscellaneous items used in the making of a product. Examples are: used factory supplies salary of factory supervisors factory depreciation factory maintenance. As a rule, if a cost could not be classified as direct raw materials or direct labor, it is classified as factory overhead.

When the three elements of production cost are mixed, the following costs can be determined until a product is produced. 1.Manufacturing costs. This is the sum of the three (3) cost elements: direct materials, direct labor and factory overhead. This is sometimes referred to as production cost or factory cost. 2.Work-in-process. The portion of the total manufacturing costs that pertains to the goods under process which are not yet 100% completed at the end of the accounting period. 3.Cost of goods manufactured. The portion of the total manufacturing costs pertaining to the work which is 100% processed and completed, transferred to finished goods.

The unsold finished goods, unfinished goods-inprocess and unused raw materials at the end of the period are inventories, which should be reported as part of the current assets of the business. The ending inventories of each type of business are compared as follows:
1. Merchandise inventory (Unsold merchandise at the end of the period)

1. Finished goods inventory (unsold) 2. Work-in-process inventory (incomplete) 3. Raw materials inventory (unused) 4. Factory supplies inventory

The Cost of Sales can be described as Cost of Goods Sold for a merchandising business since the items purchased are already the final product sold. On the other hand, it is described as the Cost of Goods Manufactured and Sold for manufacturing firms because the items purchased are converted into finished products before they are sold.

Factory Overhead: Indirect Materials Indirect labor Factory depreciation and other factory expenses


Direct Labor

Cost of goods sold

Prime Cost and Conversion Cost

The cost elements of a manufacturing firm could be combined and formed as (1) prime costs and (2) conversion costs. 1. Prime Costs consist of direct materials and direct labor used to make the product . This cost is called prime cost or direct cost because the primary materials and main labor are combined in making the product.

2. Conversion Costs includes the costs of direct labor and all indirect costs.
This is called conversion cost because the direct labor and overhead costs transform the raw materials to finished goods. Indirect manufacturing cost is also called manufacturing overhead or factory overhead cost.

The Cost of Goods Manufactured and Sold The cost of goods manufactured and sold account is generally used to describe the merchandise sold by a manufacturing business. The schedule of cost of goods manufactured and sold is presented as follows (all amounts assumed):

Cost versus Non-Cost System

The accounting for manufacturing activities may be done using either Cost System or Non-Cost System.

1. Cost System maintains detailed perpetual records of the cost of raw materials, work-in-process and finished goods inventory. This system provides an updated information about manufacturing costs which serves as helpful guide for price decision-making.
2. Non-cost system determines the cost of goods manufactured based on the periodic actual physical count of ending inventory for materials, work-in-process, and finished goods, converting these into value using the adapted cost method (FIFO or weighted average). This chapter discusses the manufacturing accounting using the non-cost system.

Under the non-cost system, the manufacturing cost should be summarized in manufacturing account which basically includes the following postings:
Direct Raw Materials Debit Credit 1. Beginning 4. Purchase return Inventory 5. Purchase discounts 2. Purchases 6. Manufacturing 3. Freight-In Summary
Direct Labor Debit 1. Actual payroll paid 2. Accrued payroll Credit 3. Manufacturing summary
Manufacturing Summary Debit Credit 1. Work-in-process, 5. Work-in-process, beginning end (per account) 2. Direct raw materials used 3. Direct Labor 4. Factory overhead 6. Transferred to Finished goods (per account)

The debit to finished goods end represents the item to be reported in the SFP, while the credit to income summary is the finished goods end to the income statement representing a reduction of the cost of finished goods sold during the period.

Transactions Related to Manufacturing Process

Business transactions of manufacturing firms are generally similar to the merchandising firm except that a merchandising firm doest not produce goods. The accounting for the production of goods includes the following pro-forma entries ( comparing periodic non-cost accounting system from perpetual cost accounting system):

Cost Accumulation Procedures

Process Costing Job Order Costing

Process Costing
Is a system applicable to continuous process of production of the same or similar (i.e. homogenous) goods. There is no need to determine the costs of the different groups of products because the product is uniform. Thus, each processing department becomes a cost center.

Job Order Costing

Is a system of allocating costs to group of unique products. It is applicable to the production of customers specified products. Each job becomes a cost center from which costs are accumulated. A subsidiary record called a JOB ORDER SHEET is needed to keep track of all unfinished jobs (work-in-process) and finished jobs (finished goods).

Distinction between Process Costing and Job Order Costing

Process Costing
1. Homogenous units pass through a series of similar process. 2. Costs are accumulated by processing department.

Job Order Costing

1. Unique jobs are worked on a time period. 2. Costs are accumulated by individual job order.

3. Unit costs are computed by dividing 3. Unit costs are determine by dividing the individual processing departments the total costs on the job cost sheet by costs by the equivalent units of the number of units on the job. production.

4. The cost of production report provides the detail for the work-inprocess account for each processing departments.

4. The job cost sheet provides the detail for work-in-process account.

Just-in-time is a manufacturing model based on the philosophy that storing inventory is a non-value added activity that a company should try to reduce or eliminate. Hence, the best decision is to maintain zero or minimal inventories. This manufacturing model implies that products should be produced when needed in the quantities needed by customers , so there is little need for workin-process or finish goods inventories. In addition, raw materials should arrive when needed, in the quantities needed for production.

a pull system, that is production is determined by customer demand , and the need for raw materials is determined by production. Accordingly, manufacturing firms that adopt this model use the backflush costing system, which is described as follows:

JIT is

1. The amount of raw materials purchased , direct labor used, and manufacturing overhead applied on the cost of goods sold account for the period will expensed during the same period.

2. At the end of the period, if any inventory remains on hand, it is

necessary to make an entry for the adjustment of the cost of goods sold account to reflect the cost of the remaining inventory. 3. The cost of the ending inventory , whether it is a raw material, work-in-process, or finished goods, is recorded in a current asset account called raw and in-process inventory. This accounting method eliminates the need for separate raw materials, work-in-process and finished goods inventory accounts, so is saves record-keeping time and cost.

Japan company incurs the ff. cost in connection with the production of a product named Kamukhamo:

Raw materials purchased Direct labor used Manufacturing overhead applied

P 100,000 150,000 50,000

At the end of the period the cost of Kamukhamo still-in-process is P10,000 and there are 5,000 raw material still unused. The journal entries of the above JIT production activities using backflush accounting would be:

Page Number 100

Date a)

Description Cost of goods sold Accounts payable To record the purchase of Inventory on acount Cost of goods sold Accrued wages payable To record the labor used in production. Cost of goods sold Factory overhead To record the overhead applied to production

Debit 100,000


The recording of raw materials, labor and overhead is eliminated because the products are presumed to be in accordance with the customers demand.

100,000 Accordingly, the cost of goods



sold account is immediately debited upon requisition of the basic manufacturing costs. This is accordance with the principle 150,000 that the cost of finished goods should be expensed at the period of production.
At the end of the production period, the raw material unused and the work-in-process are adjusted in the raw and inprocess inventory account. The cost of goods sold, net of raw and in-process inventory at the end of the period is actually the amount of the total cost of goods manufactured and sold.

Activity-Based Costing System


Activity-Based Costing (ABC) System

Activity-based costing uses more than one predetermined overhead rate to assign overhead costs for each activity utilized in production. Accordingly, this method ensures that the amount of overhead assigned represents the resources consumed. When companies use an activity-based costing(ABC) system, they first assign estimated manufacturing overhead costs to activity level called cost pools. A cost pool is a group of costs that change in response to the same cost driver. Cost Drivers measure activity in the conversion cycle and are assumed to cause the change of conversion cycle cost. A good example of cost driver is the number of hours used for a particular type of activity.

The following activity-based costing overview facilitates an understanding of the concept:

Types of Costs Depreciation Property taxes Utilities Insurance Activity Level Facility sustaining Types of Activities Owning buildings Occupying buildings Using buildings Maintaining buildings Example of Cost Drivers Number of square feet Number of square feet BTUs of heat produced Number of square feet

150 production runs 10,000 machine hours

P1,000 per test

P1,000 per production run P5 per machine hour

Assuming that during the period, the production of New Products Manufacturing Company actually required the following resources to produce Kamukhamo products: 3,000 square feet of building space 2,000 hours of development time 10 quality tests 150 production runs 1,000 machine runs Using the predetermined overhead rates, the manufacturing overhead is applied to the production, as follows:
Building costs: (P 4x 3,000 sq.feet) Development costs: (P10x 2,000 devt.hours) Product testing costs: (P1,0000x10 quality tests) Setup and inspection costs: (P1,000x150 production runs) Machine usage costs: (P5x1000) Total Manufacturing overhead applied in the period = P 12,000 = 20,000 = 10,000 = 150,000 = 5,000 = P 197,000
