The Allbright BrickWorks, in Winnipeg, manufactures high-quality bricks used in residential and commercial construction. The firm is small but highly automated and typically produces about 300,000 bricks per month. A brick is created in a continuous production operation. In the initial step, the raw material, a mixture of soils and water, is forced into a brick mould moving along a conveyer belt. No other materials are required in the manufacture of a brick. Each brick takes about three days to complete. They spend the last 36 hours or so on the conveyor belt in an oven that removes moisture from the product. The conveyor belt speed is monitored and controlled by computer. The firm uses a process costing system based on actual costs in three cost pools-direct materials, direct labour, and factory overhead-to assign production costs to output. Cost and production data for October 2020 follow: Production Data Beginning work in process inventory (100% complete in terms of direct materials; 60% complete in terms of direct labour; 36% complete in terms of factory overhead) Started this period Ending work in process inventory (100% complete in terms of direct materials; 50% complete in terms of direct labour; 40% complete in terms of factory overhead) 35,000 bricks 292,900 bricks 36,000 bricks Cost Data Beginning inventory Cost in October Materials \$1,340 11,716 Direct Labour Overhead \$470 \$810 14,445 17,622 Determine the cost of bricks transferred to finished goods inventory and the cost of bricks in ending work in process inventory for October 2020.
