    Cost Flow in a Process Costing Environment

    1) Juman Company makes magnets all of the same size and shape. The materials and costs flow through 2 departments: Mixing and Forming. In the Mixing Department, the metal is melted in huge vats. The fully mixed metal is then siphoned off to the Forming Department, where the molten metal is poured into molds and allowed to cool.

    In the Mixing Department, the following material and cost flows were recorded in February:

    Units
    Beginning inventory, in pounds: 40,000

    Ending inventory 20,000
