Job Order Cost Flow The flow of costs (direct materials, direct labor, and manufacturing overhead) in job order cost  accounting parallels the physical flow of the materials as they are converted into finished goods. As  shown in Illustration  15-3 , companies assign manufacturing costs to the Work in Process Inventory  account. When a job is completed, the company transfers the cost of the job to Finished Goods  Inventory. Later when the goods are sold, the company transfers their cost to Cost of Goods Sold.  Illustration 15-3    Flow of costs in job order costing Illustration  15-3  provides a basic overview of the flow of costs in a manufacturing setting. A more  detailed presentation of the flow of costs is shown in Illustration

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
