Berkeley Bag manufactures high end book bags. One product line is a shoulder bag designed for trade fairs and conferences that the company “seeds” with products specified by the customer. Final processing takes place in the finishing department where each item transferred in from the sewing department is thoroughly inspected and tested before high value promotional samples and products are inserted in the various special purpose pockets. The bags are then packaged in bulk for shipment to the customer.

Due to an increase in the number of contracts the company has expanded its workforce, causing an increase in spoilage due to worker inexperience combined with a more demanding production schedule. Accordingly, the company has increased the level of spoilage considered to be normal under current conditions to 10% of the production transferred from sewing to finishing.

Conversion costs are incurred (and allocated) uniformly throughout the process as are the material costs represented by the promotional items and final packaging. The company uses the weighted average process cost accounting method.
