Acct 102 – Chap 1 Average Cost is the total cost of making products divided by the total number of products made. Cost allocation is the process of dividing a total cost into parts and assigning the parts to relevant objects. Cost-plus-pricing strategy sets the price at cost plus a markup equal to a percentage of cost. Direct labor includes wages paid to production workers whose efforts can be easily and conveniently traced to products. Direct Materials is the costs of raw materials used to make products that can be easily and conveniently traced to those products. Finished Goods are completed products resulting from the manufacturing process; measured by the accumulated cost of raw material, labor, and overhead. General, Selling and Administrative Costs are all costs not associated with obtaining or manufacturing a product; sometimes called period costs because they are normally expensed in the period in which the economic sacrifice is incurred. Indirect costs are costs that cannot be easily traced to a specific product.
