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.
