Conversion Cost
Most of the times during solving the problems direct labor cot and factory overhead costs are not
given, instead an amount named as conversion cost appears in the question. Conversion cost is
combination of these two costs i.e. Conversion Cost = Direct labor + Factory overhead cost.
These are the two costs which converts the raw material into the finished goods therefore these are
named as conversion cost.
Production Cost
Direct Material Cost
Conversion cost
It consists of both direct labor cost
It represents heavy proportion in product
and FOH cost. It is used to convert

Valuation of Closing Finish Goods inventory
Another problem that students often face while solving questions of cost of goods sold is non
availability of cost of finished goods inventory.
Cost of finished goods inventory is calculated by multiplying units of finished goods inventory
with the cost per unit. So to calculate cost of closing finished goods inventory following formula is
used:
Closing finished goods units x cost per unit
Some times cost per unit is not given in the question, the question becomes more complex. In this
situation some information will be given that can be used to find out the cost per unit.
Cost per unit is calculated through the following formula:
Cost of goods manufactured = cost per unit
Number of units manufactured
This is also known as per unit manufacturing cost. There are two components to this formula
which need to be determined before its application.
1. Cost of goods manufactured
2. Number of units manufactured
Cost of goods manufactured is calculated in the way as we have already discussed. Where as
number of units manufactured will be obtained through the following working:
Units sold
****
Add  Units closing finished goods inventory
****
Less  Units opening finished goods inventory
****
Units manufactured

This can also be understood through the following algebraic manner:

This can also be understood through the following algebraic manner:
Opening finished goods units + Units produced ­ Closing finished goods units = Units sold
300 + X ­ 420 = 3880
Units produced = Units sold + Closing finished goods units - Opening finished goods units
X = 3,880 + 420 ­ 300 = 4,000

Value of Closing Finish Goods Inventory
Closing finish goods = Closing finish goods units X Cost Per unit
= 420 x  150
= 63,000
