Larsen Corp manufactures car seats in its Sarnia plant Each
Larsen Corp. manufactures car seats in its Sarnia plant. Each car seat passes through the Assembly department and the Testing department. This problem focuses on the Assembly department. The process-costing system at Larsen Corp. has a single direct cost category (direct materials) and a single indirect cost category (conversion costs). Direct materials are added at the beginning of the process. Conversion costs are added evenly during the process. When the Assembly department finishes work on each car seat, it is immediately transferred to Testing. Larsen Corp. uses the weighted-average method of process costing. Data for the
Assembly department for October 2012 are:
1. For each cost category, compute equivalent units of work done in October 2012 in the Assembly department. Show physical units in the first column of your schedule.
2. For each cost category, summarize total Assembly department costs for October 2012 and calculate the cost per equivalent unit.
3. Assign total costs to units completed and transferred out and to units in ending work in process.
Prepare a set of summarized journal entries for all October 2012 transactions affecting Work in Process—Assembly. Set up a T-account for Work in Process—Assembly, and post the entries to it.
