equivalent units

equivalent units
= effective units
Unfinished units of production that remain in a process at the end of a period as work in progress (or process). Degrees of completion are assigned to each cost classification, which, when applied to the number of units in work in progress, give an equivalent number of completed units. The equivalent units have an impact on the valuation of opening and closing work in progress.
