This addresses the weighted-average method of process acct.

Porter Handcraft is a manufacturer of picture frames for large retailers. Every picture passes through two departments: the Assembly Department and the Finishing Department. This problem focuses on the Assembly Department. The process-costing system at Porter has a single direct-cost category (direct materials) and a single indirect-cost category (conversion costs). Direct materials are added when the Assembly Department process is 10% complete. Conversion costs are added evenly during the Assembly Department process is 10% complete. Conversion costs are added evenly during the Assembly Department's process.

Porter uses the weighted-average method of process accounting. Consider the following data for the Assembly Department in April 2009 (see attached):

1) Summarize total Assembly Department costs for April 2009, and assign total costs to units completed (and transferred out) and to units in ending work in process.
