Unformatted text preview: CHAPTER 17 PROCESS COSTING TRUE/FALSE 1. Examples of industries that would use process costing include the pharmaceutical and semiconductor industry. Answer : True Difficulty : 1 Objective : 1 Terms to Learn : process-costing system 2. The principal difference between process costing and job costing is that in job costing an averaging process is used to compute the unit costs of products or services. Answer : False Difficulty : 2 Objective : 1 Terms to Learn : process-costing system The averaging process is used to calculate unit costs in process costing. 3. Process-costing systems separate costs into cost categories according to the timing of when costs are introduced into the process. Answer : True Difficulty : 2 Objective : 1 Terms to Learn : process-costing system 4. Estimating the degree of completion for the calculation of equivalent units is usually easier for conversion costs than it is for direct materials. Answer : False Difficulty : 2 Objective : 1 Terms to Learn : equivalent units Estimating the degree of completion is easier for the calculation of direct materials since direct materials can be measured more easily than conversion costs. 5. Process costing would be most likely used by a firm that produces heterogeneous products. Answer : False Difficulty : 1 Objective : 1 Terms to Learn : process costing Process costing would be most likely used by a firm that produces homogeneous products. 17-1 6. The last step in a process-costing system is to determine the equivalent units for the period. Answer : False Difficulty : 2 Objective : 2 Terms to Learn : process costing The last step in a process-costing system is to assign the costs incurred to completed units and to units in ending work in process. 7. Equivalent units are calculated separately for each input. Answer : True Difficulty : 2 Objective : 3 Terms to Learn : equivalent units 8. In a process-costing system, there is always a separate Work-in-Process account for each different process. Answer : True Difficulty : 2 Objective : 3 Terms to Learn : process costing 9. Process-costing journal entries and job-costing journal entries are similar with respect to direct materials and conversion costs. Answer : True Difficulty : 2 Objective : 4 Terms to Learn : process-costing system 10. The accounting (for a bakery) entry to record the transfer of rolls from the mixing department to the baking department is: Work in Process-Mixing Department Work in Process-Baking Department Answer : False Difficulty : 2 Objective : 4 Terms to Learn : process-costing system The correct accounting entry is the opposite of the entry shown here. 11. The weighted-average process costing method does not distinguish between units started in the previous period but completed during the current period and units started and completed during the current period....
