Activity Based Costing / Management (ABC/M) is revolutionizing decision making in organizations around the world. ABC/M solves many of the shortcomings of cost accounting and provides organizations with the ability to understand what products, customers, services and channels are profitable. ABC differs from traditional cost accounting techniques as it accounts for all "fixed" and direct costs as variables, without allocating costs based upon a customer's unit volume, total days in production or percentage of indirect costs. ABC/M tracks an organization's flow of activities by linking the activity (resource consumption) to the cost object.
The decision making capabilities of any Activity Based Costing model can only be as good as the data collected.
