The appropriate valuation and analysis of manufacturing costs have been for years a key factor in a successful business management. One of these approaches, Absorption Costing allocates all possible variable costs to the output units. Since indirect costs are usually known periodically, companies following absorption cost approach usually valuate inventory on a periodic cost basis.
In this context of periodic costing, the right sequence in which the cost of the items rollup of the raw materials cost into subassemblies and then from the subassemblies into the assembly item cost could be very complex in the case of scenarios where the same item is in different levels of different bills of materials and also when transfers between different manufacturing plants occur from these items.
For skilled users wanting to know how Absorption Costing works when using Periodic Average Costing (PAC).
