Question

Lake Bound uses three processes to manufacture lifts for personal watercrafts: forming a lift’s parts from galvanized steel, assembling the lift, and testing the completed lift. The lifts are transferred to finished goods before shipment to marinas across the country. Lake Bound’s Testing Department requires no direct materials. Conversion costs are incurred evenly throughout the testing process. Other information follows for October 2016:
Units
Beginning Work-in-Process Inventory............. 2,100 units
Transferred in from Assembling Department during the period.... 7,300 units
Completed during the period................ 4,300 units
Ending Work-in-Process Inventory
(40% complete for conversion work) .............. 5,100 units
Costs
Beginning Work-in-Process Inventory (transferred in costs, $93,200;
conversion costs, $18,300) ................. $ 111,500
Transferred in from the Assembly Department during the period.... 687,000
Conversion costs added during the period............ 76,800
The cost transferred into Finished Goods Inventory is the cost of the lifts transferred out of the Testing Department. Lake Bound uses weighted-average process costing.
Requirements
1. Prepare a production cost report for the Testing Department.
2. What is the cost per unit for lifts completed and transferred out to Finished Goods Inventory? Why would management be interested in this cost?
