Product cost information is used by man- agers to (1) establish product prices, (2) control operations, and (3) develop financial statements. 2. a. Job order cost system and process cost system. b. The job order cost system provides a separate record of each quantity of product that passes through the factory. c. Process cost systems accumulate costs for each department or process within a factory. 3. Job order costing is used by firms that sell custom goods and services to customers. The job order system is frequently associ- ated with firms that will produce a product or service specifically to a customer order. 4.
