A job cost record forms part of a job cost system, and is used to accumulate manufacturing costs of direct materials, direct labor, and applied overhead for a particular job.
Direct materials and direct labor are actual values taken from material requisitions documents and time sheets.
Applied overhead is allocated to the job on a predetermined basis (e.g. labor hours) and rate.
