The production foreman reports that 300,000 units were put into production in Department 1. Of this quantity, 75,000, a normal number, were lost in production; and 180,000 were completed and transferred to Department 2. For the balance in process at the end of the month, all materials had been added, but only one third of the labor and factory overhead had been applied.
