COMPANY

MMK

This problem has a value of 10% of the final grade
Objective: Demonstrate application of Process Costing of a manufacturing company
including the following:
Determine Department WIP inventory
Calculation of Equivalent Units
Determine Finished Goods Inventory
Calculation of COGS
Determination of Gross Profit
The company uses a FIFO process cost system. The process starts in the Kettle Room where
apples are cored, cut and added to the Kettles along with Grandma’s special spices. After
several hours of slow simmering, the sauce is cooled as it moves to the Canning department
where the sauce is poured into jars and sealed. After the jars are sealed they move to the
packing department where they are placed into boxes and moved to finished goods where
they are ready for sale. During the month of March the company sold 5,000 boxes of sauce
with each box holding a dozen jars. A jar of sauce sells for \$4.00.
1. Create the WIPs for each department indicating the Cost of each jar as it moves
through the process.
2. Using the following information, determine the Gross Profit for the month of
March.
