"I think we goofed when we hired that new assistant controller," said Ruth Scarpino, president of Provost Industries. "Just look at this report that he prepared for last month for the Finishing Department. I can't understand it." Finishing Department costs: Work in process inventory, April 950 units; materials 100% complete; conversion 60% complete$8,578*Costs transferred in during the month from the preceding department, 2,450 units 26,210 Materials cost added during the month 10,430 Conversion costs incurred during the month 22,060 Total departmental costs$67,278 Finishing Department costs assigned to: Units completed and transferred to finished goods, 2,800 units at $24.030 per unit$67,278 Work in process inventory, April 30, 600 units; materials 0% complete; conversion 40% complete 0 Total departmental costs assigned$67,278 *Consists of cost transferred in, $4,288; materials cost, $2,030; and conversion cost, $2,260. "He's struggling to learn our system," replied Frank Harrop, the operations manager. "The problem is that he's been away from process costing for a long time, and it's coming back slowly." "It's not just the format of his report that I'm concerned about. Look at that $24.030 unit cost that he's come up with for April. Doesn't that seem high to you?" said Ms. Scarpino. "Yes, it does seem high; but on the other hand, I know we had an increase in materials prices during April, and that may be the explanation," replied Mr. Harrop. "I'll get someone else to accomplish this report and then we can see what's going on."
