About this event

Initially, Peanut-Butter Costing approach started to calculate and allocate costs to the product. It is the traditional approach of costing, under which a single indirect-cost rate to allocate cost to products often do not produce reliable cost data, the ripple effect is under-costing and over-costing. The problem needs a solution, which is called Activity Based Costing. It is one of the best tools for refining a costing system not only for Financial and Management accountants but also for Engineers associated with different projects.

Activity Based costing system is applied by focusing on individual activities as the fundamental cost objects. An activity is an event, or unit of work or a task with a specific purpose. Under ABC the cost of individual activities are calculated and assigned to the product. These activities are known as Cost Drivers, which are responsible to accumulate cost. Teaching to Engineering; in all professions and trades; ABC is applicable and it can create excellence in finding out the real cost of a project.
