Activity Based Costing
The main reason for the rise of overheads on value adding functions of an organization is the increase of activities such as planning control and performance monitoring on many business processes such as sales, service, R&D, purchasing, logistics, production planning , quality control, order processing etc.
This shows that the percentage of overheads in total of cost in an organization is increasing gradually. In other words, the proportion of total of direct labor and direct material costs to total cost is decreasing.
As a result of that, it is getting more difficult to relate the overhead to direct labor. The cost analysis data shows too general information which is not appropriate for analysis.
Today’s competitive business environment requires “correct” cost information.
