Scenario: Davis Skaros has recently been promoted to production manager. He has just started to receive various managerial reports, including the production cost report you prepared. It showed his department had 2,000 equivalent units in ending inventory. His department has had a history of not keeping enough inventory on hand to meet demand. He has come to you, very angry, and wants to know why you credited him with only 2,000 units when he knows he had at least twice that many on hand.

Prepare a maximum 700-word informal memo and explain to Mr. Skaros why his production cost report showed only 2,000 equivalent units in ending inventory. Using a professional tone, explain to him clearly why your report is accurate.

Format the assignment consistent with APA guidelines.

misunderstanding of the inventory units that were listed. It is essential to think about the benefits
of the stock management to clarify the debate from the division in the production. Also, taking
care of the inventory is an essential step as it helps in the process of decision making on topics
such as what should be bought, amount to be purchased and where the extra amount should be
In other cases, there exist several conflicting interests within the stock management
