Under full costing, these costs are included in unsold inventory, while under variable costing, these items are treated as period expenses. As a result, if more units are produced than sold, under full costing, some costs remain on the balance sheet, while under variable costing, fixed manufacturing overhead cost is expensed. If units produced exceed units sold: full costing and variable costing yield the same income. full costing yields a higher income than variable costing. full costing yields a lower income than variable costing. Self Study, Question 3 Correct! Since JIT management concepts minimize inventories at all levels, the effects of fixed manufacturing overhead are significantly reduced. Use of a just-in-time inventory management system is likely to: decrease the difference between variable and full costing income. have no effect on the difference between variable and full costing income....
