In managerial accounting and cost accounting, the cost of goods manufactured is a schedule, statement, or calculation of the production costs for the products that were completed in an accounting period. In other words, the cost of goods manufactured is the manufacturing costs associated with the products that moved from the manufacturing area to the finished goods inventory during the period.

The formula for the cost of goods manufactured is the costs of: direct materials used + direct labor used + manufacturing overhead assigned = the manufacturing costs incurred in the current accounting period + beginning work-in-process inventory - ending work-in-process inventory.

AccountingCoach PRO includes a form for preparing a schedule of the Cost of Goods Manufactured.

A manufacturer's cost of goods sold is computed by adding the finished goods inventory at the beginning of the period to the cost of goods manufactured and then subtracting the finished goods inventory at the end of the period.
