    Which one of the following will precede “FEEDBACK” in the financial planning process?
    ► Choosing a strategy
    ► Implementation of the plan
    ► Comparing budgeted and actual results
    ► Taking corrective measures

    The Control Process:
    When plans are finalized and put to action or implemented, then the actual performance is compared with the budgeted numbers. The difference between the actual and budgeted numbers is called variance. This variance is investigated as to know the real causes of the difference. The investigation leads to initiate the corrective action and to adjust the budget of future periods. The investigation result is known as feedback.
    There are three types of feedback emerging from investigation of variance.
    1. Change The Strategy or Course of Action – If something went wrong with strategy, the course of action is fine tuned or changed to ensure future actual results conform to original plan. For example, if sales was less than the budgeted and variance investigation revealed that sales force could not be motivated then some incentives and bonuses can be offered to motivate the sales force. The future period budgets will be adjusted for the proposed incentive expenses.
    2. Do Nothing – if the results are in line with the planned, no action is required.
    3. Change The Plan – Targets or plan itself is revised rather than changing strategy. For example the targeted profit is scaled down.

    Question # 13 of 20 ( Start time: 10:37:08 PM ) Total Marks: 1

    Select correct option:

    Work in Process inventory
    Finished goods inventory
    Balanced goods inventory
    Raw materials inventory

    Different Types of Inventory

    Inventory of materials occurs at various stages and departments of an organization. A manufacturing organization holds inventory of raw materials and consumables required for production. It also holds inventory of semi-finished goods at various stages in the plant with various departments. Finished goods inventory is held at plant, FG Stores, distribution centers etc. Further both raw materials and finished goods those that are in transit at various locations also form a part of inventory depending upon who owns the inventory at the particular juncture. Finished goods inventory is held by the organization at various stocking points or with dealers and stockiest until it reaches the market and end customers.

    Besides Raw materials and finished goods, organizations also hold inventories of spare parts to service the products. Defective products, defective parts and scrap also forms a part of inventory as long as these items are inventoried in the books of the company and have economic value.

    Work in Process inventory

    Raw material is 1st stage in manufacturing the material once taken from store to manufacturing department and processed is no more raw material. . and he is talking about various stages of production and raw material is not between the stages its the 1st and beginning stage. .in all further stages inventory is called work in process inventory till finished goods. . .

    Production Inventory Management and Work-in-Process

    Work-in-process is unfinished goods or products that are between raw materials and finished goods. Raw materials that are currently being used somewhere in the production process would qualify. The actual value of inventory can vary depending on what stage the unfinished product is at. For this reason putting a value on work-in-process inventory is much more difficult than the valuation of raw materials
