Factory overhead In a process company, factory overhead represents those costs not directly assigned to one function.  For example, the depreciation expense of a machine used solely by the preparation function would  be assigned to work-in-process inventory for the preparation department while depreciation expense  for the plant (the factory building) would be assigned to factory overhead as all functions occupy the  plant. The journal entries that follow illustrate the accounting for general overhead costs.
