Mini-Practice Set One - Instructions Job Order Cost Accounting

 

You have learned how to account for the basic elements of manufacturing costs. This practice set combines these various techniques and principles in a practical application for Storage Solutions, Inc. You will be required to perform the duties not only of the cost accountant but also of the storeroom clerk, voucher clerk, and other factory personnel.

 

Storage Solutions, Inc. Storage Solutions, Inc. is a manufacturer of modular storage and media units for the home and office. The components manufactured by the company include bookcases, entertainment centers, and shelving units. These products are popular because of their trendy design features and ability to be arranged in multiple configurations. Production is divided between custom orders and standard models manufactured for stock.

 

The Production Division consists of three producing departments and two service departments. The producing departments are Shaping, Assembly, and Finishing. The service departments are Building Services and General Factory. The production process begins in the Shaping Department, where wood, glass, and plastic are shaped into the component parts that make up the finished units. These parts are transferred to the Assembly Department where they are assembled. In the Finishing Department, a variety of finishes are applied and hardware is attached to the assembled units. The Building Services and General Factory departments perform activities similar to those described for Grand Slam Uniforms in the textbook. Finished products are sold to home furnishing stores across the country.

 

Cost Accounting System Storage Solutions' cost accounting system includes a number of journals, ledgers, and cost accounting forms. All forms are provided. Entries have been made on these forms where indicated.

 

Journals The seven journals used for making original entries are listed here, as are the initials to be used for posting references.

 

Voucher Register VR Materials Requisition Journal MR Returned Materials Journal RM Manufacturing Overhead Applied Journal MOA Completed Jobs Journal CJ Sales Journal S General Journal (vouchers) J

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

General Ledger The firm's chart of accounts includes the following accounts, relating to the flow of manufacturing costs. The balances as of June 1, 2006 are given and have been recorded for you in the general ledger accounts.

Subsidiary Ledgers Four subsidiary cost ledgers are used, and the necessary forms are provided for you. Storage Solutions uses the FIFO method of costing all inventories.

 

Materials Ledger In order to simplify the work in this project, the materials ledger, which actually contains several dozen materials ledger cards, has been condensed to four cards showing the activities up to the close of business on June 25. You will make detailed entries for Materials S-16 (shelves, 52" x 13"), T-23 (tempered glass panels), and P-42 (polishing cloths). All other materials are summarized in total on the fourth materials ledger card, and no entries are required on it.

 

Job Cost Ledger The job cost ledger currently consists of four job cost sheets. Job 211 was begun in May; Jobs 218, 219, and 220 were started in June. Various entries have been posted through June 25.

 

Departmental Overhead Analysis Sheets Overhead analysis sheet are provided for each of the five departments in the organization: Shaping, Assembly, Finishing, Building Services, and General Factory. The first entry on each sheet summarizes the postings of June 1 through June 25.

 

Finished Goods Ledger The finished goods ledger consists of three stock cards showing all postings through June 25. You will make entries involving two types of finished goods - bookcases (Stock 129) and shelving units (Stock 458) - as required during the remainder of the month. All other types of finished goods are summarized on the third card, and no entries are required on it.

Compare the total with the balance of Raw Materials 121. 2) Prepare a schedule of work in process. Compare the total with the balance of Work in Process 122. 3) Prepare a schedule of finished goods. Compare the total with the balance of Finished Goods 126.
