  • Golding Manufacturing, a division of Farnsworth Sporting Pty Ltd, produces two different models of bows and eight models of knives. The bow-manufacturing process involves the production of two major subassemblies: the limbs and the handles. The limbs pass through four sequential processes before reaching final assembly: layup, moulding, fabricating and finishing. In the layup department, limbs are created by laminating layers of wood. In the moulding department, the limbs are heat-treated, under pressure, to form strong resilient limbs. In the fabricating department, any protruding glue or other processing residue is removed. Finally, in the finishing department, the limbs are cleaned with acetone, dried and sprayed with the final finishes. The handles pass through two processes before reaching final assembly: pattern and finishing. In the pattern department, blocks of wood are fed into a machine that is set to shape the handles. Different patterns are possible, depending on the…

    Scribners Corporation produces fine papers in three production departments—Pulping, Drying, and Finishing. In the Pulping Department, raw materials such as wood fiber and rag cotton are mechanically and chemically treated to separate their fibers. The result is a thick slurry of fibers. In the Drying Department, the wet fibers transferred from the Pulping Department are laid down on porous webs, pressed to remove excess liquid, and dried in ovens. In the Finishing Department, the dried paper is coated, cut, and spooled onto reels. The company uses the weighted-average method in its process costing system. Data for March for the Drying Department follow:     Units Percent Completed Pulping Conversion Work in process inventory, March 1 4,000 100% 80% Work in process inventory, March 31 8,000 100% 75% Pulping cost in work in process inventory, March 1     $ 2,860 Conversion cost in work in process inventory, March 1     $ 800 Units transferred to the next production…

  • Springsteen Company manufactures guitars. The company uses a standard, job-order cost-accounting system in two production departments. In the Construction Department, the wooden guitars are built by highly skilled craftsmen and coated with several layers of lacquer. Then the units are transferred to the Finishing Department, where the bridge of the guitar is attached and the strings are installed. The guitars also are tuned and inspected in the Finishing Department. The diagram below depicts the production process.   Each finished guitar contains seven pounds of veneered wood. In addition, one pound of wood is typically wasted in the production process. The veneered wood used in the guitars has a standard price of $14 per pound. The other parts needed to complete each guitar, such as the bridge and strings, cost $17 per guitar. The labor standards for Springsteen’s two production departments are as follows:Construction Department: 5 hours of direct labor at $21 per hourFinishing…
    Kota Toy Corporation manufactures lizard dolls in two departments, Molding and Assembly. In the Molding Department, plastic is injected into a lizard-shaped mold. The dolls that come out of the molds are then transferred to the Assembly Department where hair is applied. Kota uses a weighted-average process cost system to collect costs in both departments. On January 1, the Molding Department had 4,000 dolls in process. These dolls were 100% complete with respect to direct materials and 70% complete with respect to conversion cost. During January, Molding completed 79,000 dolls. On January 31, Molding had 7,000 dolls in work in process. These dolls were 100% complete with respect to direct materials and 25% complete with respect to conversion cost. What are the Molding Department's equivalent units related to materials for January? 86,000 93,000 79,000 89,000
