Questions about Inventory Control? 92
What is the work order/plant accounting system? 93
Do you have in-house construction projects, like water and sewer main extension, where you need to keep track of the cost? 94
And when the project is complete, you need to transfer the final cost out of Construction in Progress to an Asset account? 95
The Work Order system will keep track of these projects. It can also be used to track and report the cost of routine projects, like taps and service line installations. 96
The Work Order system will calculate the cost of overhead and other expenses associated with the project. 97
When the job/project is complete, the order is closed and entries are posted to General Ledger and Fixed Assets, if the item should be capitalized. 98
