18 The Goal of Good Management is to Create Value Cost Management is applying the value criteria to every decision we make, every activity we perform, and every process we complete.Modern accounting systems do not just evaluate good stewardship but must provide managers with the information managers need to improve value.Management accounting systems are used to enhance both decision making and management control.Management accounting systems do not need to be perfect, only ‘good enough’ to increase value.We think it is fair to explain our definition of value. We limit our definition of value to the creation of current and future cashflows. This ignores value to owner stakeholders that may not create cashflows. We expand this idea later in the text to discuss and define stakeholders as groups of individuals that can influence the value of an organization. This is an opportunity for the instructor to discuss the influence of personal value or preferences on the costs of operations. For example ‘If you like your job, you will work for less’.You may wish to use as a discussion question the following.What kinds of value to you think are important for managers to consider because they will influence future cashflows?Any of these activities will influence value (cashflows).Cashflows from customers.Cashflows paid for wages and materials.The image of the company will influence customer loyalty, thereby increasing or decreasing revenue.The training and working conditions of employees will influence the wages they demand, and their productivity levels.
19 New Management Trends to Create Value Encourage Management Accounting Systems Redesign, for example.Customer focusQuality focusDelivery focusOutsourcing and the virtual companyCommunicationsShortening product life cyclesTeam developmentDeregulation in the service sector1. CUSTOMER FOCUS: Companies try to provide differentiated products that have unique value. Information on the cost and value of unique features are needed.2. QUALITY FOCUS: Means companies provide goods and services as specified to both internal and external customers. This requires information on the costs of quality and progress towards total quality management.3. DELIVERY FOCUS: Means delivering goods and services as promised. The performance and costs of this goal needs to be monitored.4. OUTSOURCING AND THE VIRTUAL COMPANY: Companies need to identify their ‘core’ competencies and outsource things they do not do well to other companies. This requires activity based measurement systems based upon quality, delivery and value-chain costs.5. COMMUNICATIONS: This refers to the dramatic improvement in communications technology. Information is much more timely and available.6. SHORTENING PRODUCT LIFE CYCLES: Short product life cycles force companies to manage product lines from the initial design stage more often. This requires new accounting systems to provide the support for this activity.7. TEAM DEVELOPMENT: Teams working across functional groups are needed to efficiently and effectively manage dynamic environments. Accounting information is needed to establish priorities and communicate among functional groups.8. DEREGULATION IN THE SERVICE SECTOR: With deregulation service industries need to make cost effective decisions that reflect the value of services to customers.

28 The Strategic Approach to Teaching Management Accounting Topics —An Introduction
29 Strategic Cost Management: Basic Concepts Strategic decision making is choosing among alternative strategies with the goal of selecting a strategy, or strategies, that provides a company with reasonable assurance of long-term growth and survivalThe key to achieving this goal is to gain a competitive advantage.Strategic cost management is the use of cost data to develop and identify superior strategies that will produce a sustainable competitive advantage.
31 Competitive Advantage Competitive advantage is the process of creating better customer value for the same or lower cost than that of competitors or creating equivalent value for lower cost than that of competitors.Customer value is the difference between what a customer receives (customer realization) and what the customer gives up (customer sacrifice).The total product is the complete range of tangible and intangible benefits that a customer receives from a purchased product.
32 Michael Porter: Strategic Positioning Cost Leadership—outperform competitors by producing at the lowest cost, consistent with quality demanded by the consumerDifferentiation—creating value for the customer through product innovation, product features, customer service, etc. that the customer is willing to pay for
34 Strategic Positioning There are three general strategies that have been identified:cost leadershipproduct differentiationfocusing
35 Strategic Positioning A cost leadership strategy happens when the same or better value is provided to customers at a lower cost than a company’s competitors.Example: A company might redesign a product so that fewer parts are needed, lowering production costs and the costs of maintaining the product after purchase.
36 Strategic Positioning (continued) A product differentiation strategy strives to increase customer value by increasing what the customer receives (customer realization).Example: a retailer of computers might offer on-site repair service, a feature not offered by other rivals in the local market.
37 Strategic Positioning (continued) A focusing strategy happens when a firm selects or emphasizes a market or customer segment in which to compete.Example: Paging Network, Inc., a paging services provider, has targeted particular kinds of customers and is in the process of weeding out the nontargeted customers.
38 Consequences of Lack of Strategic Cost-Management Information Decision-making based on guess and intuitionLack of clarity about direction and goalsOver time, lack of a clear and favorable perception of the firm by customers and suppliersIncorrect decisions: choosing products, markets, or manufacturing processes that are inconsistent with the organization’s strategyFor control purposes, cannot link performance effectively to strategic goals…
39 Tools for Integrating Strategy into Management Accounting -- The Value Chain-- Strategy Maps & the Balanced Scorecard (BSC)
41 For a manufacturing firm these include the following: Value ChainRefers to all activities associated with providing a product or serviceFor a manufacturing firm these include the following:LO 8 Identify trends in management accounting.
42 Industrial Value Chain The industrial value chain is the linked set of value-creating activities from basic raw materials to the disposal of the finished product by end-use customers.Fundamental to a value-chain framework is the recognition that there exist complex linkages and interrelationships among activities both within and external to the firm.
43 Value Chain Analysis: A Detailed Look at Strategy… The Value Chain is a linked set of value-adding activities used by an organization to deliver its value proposition to its customers. It consists of:“Upstream” ActivitiesManufacturing/Operations“Downstream” Activities
44 Value-Chain Analysis Develop competitive advantage by: Identify value-chain activitiesDevelop competitive advantage by:Identifying opportunities for adding value for the customerIdentifying opportunities for eliminating non- value added activities and reducing costUnderstand linkages among suppliers, the entity, and customers
45 Internal and External Linkages There are two types of linkages that must be analyzed and understood: internal and external linkages.Internal linkages are relationships among activities that are performed within a firm’s portion of the value chain.External linkages describe the relationship of a firm’s value-chain activities that are performed with its suppliers and customers. There are two types: supplier linkages and customer linkages.
46 Strategy Maps & the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) The BSC and Strategy Map are used to align the organization’s activities with achieving strategic goals, using the four perspectives:FinancialCustomerInternal ProcessesLearning and Growth

52 Organizational Activities and Cost Drivers Organizational activities are of two types: structural and executional.Structural activities are activities that determine the underlying economic structure of the organization.Executional activities are activities that define the processes and capabilities of an organization and thus are directly related to the ability of an organization to execute successfully.
53 Organizational Activities and Drivers Structural Activities Structural Cost DriversBuilding plants Number of plants, scale, degree of centralizationManagement structuring Management style and philosophyGrouping employees Number and type of work unitsComplexity Number of product lines, number of unique processes, number of unique partsVertically integrating Scope, buying power, selling powerSelecting and using process Types of process technologies, technologies experience
55 Operational Activities Operational activities are day-to-day activities performed as a result of the structure and processes selected by the organization.Examples:Receiving and inspecting incoming parts, moving materials, shipping products, testing new products, servicing products, and setting up equipment.

57 Internal Value ChainDesignServiceDevelopDistributeProduceMarket
58 Exploiting Internal Linkages An Example:Assume that design engineers have been told that the number of parts is a significant cost driver and that reducing the number of parts will reduce the demand for various activities downstream in the value chain. They plan to reduce the price by per-unit savings. Currently 10,000 units are produced. The data of the new design and its effects on demand are given below:Current ExpectedActivity Cost Driver Capacity Demand DemandMaterial usage # of parts 200, ,000 80,000Labor usage Labor hours 10,000 10,000 5,000Purchasing # of orders 15,000 12,500 6,500Warranty repair # of defects 1,
60 Activity-Based Customer Costing An Example:Suppose that the Thompson Company produces precision parts for 11 major buyers. An activity-based costing system is used to assign manufacturing costs to products. The company prices each customer's order by adding order-filling costs to manufacturing costs and then adding a 20% markup (to cover any administrative costs plus profits). Order-filling costs total $606,000 and are currently assigned in proportion to sales volume (measured by number of parts sold). Of the 11 customers, one accounts for 50% of sales, with the remaining ten accounting for the remainder of sales. Orders placed by the smaller companies are also about the same size. Data concerning Thompson’s customer activity are given on PPT 13-22:
61 Exploiting External Linkages (continued) Large Ten Smaller Customer CustomersUnits purchased 500, ,000Orders placedManufacturing cost $3,000,000 $3,000,000*Order-filling cost allocated 303, ,000Order cost per unit $0.606 $0.606*Order-filling capacity is purchased in blocks of 45 (225 capacity), each block costing $40,400; variable order-filling activity costs are $2,000 per order; thus, the cost is [(5 x $40,400) + ($2,000 x 202)]
62 Exploiting External Linkage (continued) Assume that ordering costs are allocated using a new driver:Large Customer Ten Smaller CustomersUnits purchased 500, ,000Orders placedManufacturing costs $3,000,000 $3,000,000*Orders-filling costs 6, ,000Order cost per unit $.012 $1.20*Order-filling capacity is allocated using number of orders. The allocationrate is $3,000 pre order ($606,000/202 orders).Implications:By using a new driver, we are drastically reducing the ordering-cost per unit of the high volume customer (50% of our business). This information could assist Thompson in establishing a new strategy for pricing.

66 A Life Cycle Costing Example Suppose that engineers are considering two new product designs for one of its power tools. Both designs reduce direct materials and direct labor content over the current model.

69 Target Costing - Example Assume that a company is considering the production of a new trencher. Current product specifications and the targeted market share call for a sales price of $250,000. The required profit is $50,000 per unit.The target cost is computed as follows:Target cost = $250,000 - $50,000= $200,000

71 Resource Consumption Accounting (RCA) Resource consumption accounting (RCA) is an adaption of ABC that emphasizes resource consumption by greatly increasing the number of resource cost pools, which allows more direct tracing of resource costs to cost objects than an ABC system with fewer cost centers.RCA is particularly appropriate for large organizations with repetitive operations and high-level information systems such as those provided by SAP, Oracle, and SAS.
72 Time-Driven ABC (TDABC) When a substantial amount of the cost of a company’s activities are in a highly repetitive process (much like in the RCA example above), the cost assignment can be based on the average time required for each activity. Time-Driven Activity-Based Costing assigns resource costs directly to cost objects using the cost per time unit of supplying the resource, rather than first assigning costs to activities and then from activities to cost objects.
73 TDABC ExampleTDABC computes the cost per minute of the resources performing the work activity. Assume 2 clerical workers paid $45,000 annually perform a certain activity that is expected to require 17 minutes. TDABC calculates the total cost as $45,000 x 2 = $90,000; TDABC then calculates the total time available for the activity as 180,000 minutes (assuming 30 hours per week with two weeks vacation: 2 workers x 50 weeks x 30 hours x 60 minutes per hour = 180,000 minutes per year). The TDAC rate for the activity is $0.50 per minute ($90,000 / 180,000).The cost of a unit of activity is $0.50 x 17 min = $8.50; if the activity required 20 min, then the allocation would be $.50 x 20 = $10.

82 Customer Equity What is it? The economic value of ALL customer relationships.The MeasureThe sum of the CLVs for all customers.How UsedProvides a measure of the value of the company from the perspective of customer profitability.
83 The Management & Control of Quality (including Six-Sigma and Lean)
84 Relationship between TQM & Financial Performance
86 Lean ManufacturingAt the heart of lean manufacturing is the Toyota Production System (TPS):a long-term focus on relationships with suppliers and coordination with these suppliers;an emphasis on balanced, continuous flow manufacturing with stable production levels;continuous improvement in product design and manufacturing processes with the objective of eliminating waste ; andflexible manufacturing systems in which different vehicles are produced on the same assembly line and employees are trained for a variety of tasks
87 Accounting for LeanThere are three reasons why the improvements in financial results typically appear later than the operating improvements from implementing lean.Customers will benefit from the improved manufacturing flexibility by ordering in smaller, more diverse quantities.Improvements in productivity will create excess capacity; as equipment and facilities are used more efficiently, some will become idle.The decrease in inventory that results from lean means that, using full cost accounting, the fixed costs incurred in prior periods flow through the income statement when inventory is decreasing.
88 Accounting for LeanLean accounting uses value streams to measure the financial benefits of a firm’s progress in implementing lean manufacturing.Each value stream is a group of related products or services.Accounting for value streams significantly reduces the need for cost allocations (since the products are aggregated into value streams) which can help the firm to better understand the profitability of its process improvements and product groups.

105 Responsibility Accounting Responsibility accounting is a system that measures the results of each responsibility center and compares those results with some measure of expected or budgeted outcome.There are four major types of responsibility centers:Cost centerRevenue centerProfit centerInvestment center
106 Responsibility Accounting 10-10610-106Responsibility AccountingCostCenterProfitCenterInvestmentCenterCost, profit,and investmentcenters are allknown asresponsibilitycenters.Responsibility accounting systems link lower-level managers’ decision-making authority with accountability for the outcomes of those decisions. The term responsibility center is used for any part of an organization whose manager has control over, and is accountable for cost, profit, or investments. The three primary types of responsibility centers are cost centers, profit centers, and investment centers.ResponsibilityCenter

118 Breakevent PointSales (in dollars) = Fixed Costs / Contribution margin ratioSales (units) = Fixed Costs / Contribution margin per unitI will use a manufacturing example. This particular manufacturer was going to add a vending service to provide breaks for employees. This added an annual cost of $1,000. How much do sales have to increase to cover this additional cost? $1,000? $4,000? What additional information do we need to know? Assume 25% contribution margin ratio.Farm Example: Family member returns to farm adding additional fixed costs of ?Another example using a manufacture. Concrete company. I noticed a truck that had been wrecked. The owner she was very upset and I assumed it was because of the truck. In talking with her she said, “Look at these clamps in the garbage.” “I have 7 employees and they will each throw 7 per day away, forever. These are the costs I have a hard time controlling, the truck it is insured”. Watch the variable costs and watch the “escalators” costs that will continue to rise carrying cost higher and reducing the contribution margin. Now we will look at a break-even graph.

122 Vocabulary Differential costs and revenue The additional cost or revenue incurred when one alternative is chosen over another.Sunk cost.Costs that are already incurred & not reversible.Opportunity Costs.The benefit given up by selecting one alternative over another. i.e. Interest on stored grain.Incremental or Differential Analysis is the analysis of the incremental revenue and the incremental costs incurred when one alternative is chosen over another. Incremental revenue is the additional revenue received from one alternative over another. Incremental costs are the additional costs incurred as a result of selecting one alternative over the other. Incremental costs and revenues are also known as relevant costs or differential costs.
123 Responsibility Accounting Model The responsibility accounting model is defined by four essential elements:assigning responsibilityestablishing performance measures or benchmarksevaluating performanceassigning rewards
124 Types of Responsibility Accounting Management accounting offers the following three types of responsibility accounting systems.Functional-basedActivity-basedStrategic-based
125 Functional-Based Responsibility Accounting System A functional-based responsibility accounting system assigns responsibility to organizational units and expresses performance measures in financial terms.It is the responsibility accounting system that was developed when most firms were operating in relatively stable environments.

136 Learning Objectives Explain why firms choose to decentralize Explain the role of transfer pricing in a decentralized firm.Discuss the methods of setting transfer prices.
137 Decentralization: The Major Issues The degree of decentralizationPerformance measurementManagement compensationThe setting of transfer prices
138 Reasons for Decentralization There are many reasons to explain why firms decide to decentralize, including:1. better access to local information2. cognitive limitations3. more timely response4. focusing of central management5. training and evaluation6. motivation7. enhanced competition
139 Decentralization in Organizations 10-139Decentralization in Organizations10-139Advantages ofDecentralizationTop managementfreed to concentrateon strategy.Lower-level managersgain experience indecision-making.Decision-makingauthority leads tojob satisfaction.A decentralized organization does not confine decision-making authority to a few top executives; rather, decision-making authority is spread throughout the organization. The advantages of decentralization are as follows:It enables top management to concentrate on strategy, higher-level decision-making, and coordinating activities.It acknowledges that lower-level managers have more detailed information about local conditions that enable them to make better operational decisions.It enables lower-level managers to quickly respond to customers.It provides lower-level managers with the decision-making experience they will need when promoted to higher level positions.It often increases motivation, resulting in increased job satisfaction and retention, as well as improved performance.Lower-level decisionsoften based onbetter information.Lower level managers can respond quickly to customers.
140 Decentralization in Organizations 10-140Decentralization in Organizations10-140May be a lack ofcoordination amongautonomousmanagers.Lower-level managersmay make decisionswithout seeing the“big picture.”Disadvantages ofDecentralizationThe disadvantages of decentralization are as follows:Lower-level managers may make decisions without fully understanding the “big picture.”There may be a lack of coordination among autonomous managers. The balanced scorecard can help reduce this problem by communicating a company’s strategy throughout the organization.Lower-level managers may have objectives that differ from those of the entire organization. This problem can be reduced by designing performance evaluation systems that motivate managers to make decisions which are in the best interests of the company.It may difficult to effectively spread innovative ideas in a strongly decentralized organization. This problem can be reduced through the effective use of intranet systems, which enable globally dispersed employees to electronically share ideas.Lower-level manager’sobjectives may notbe those of theorganization.May be difficult tospread innovative ideasin the organization.
141 Decentralization and Segment Reporting 10-14110-141Decentralization and Segment ReportingQuick MartAn Individual StoreA segment is any part or activity of an organization about which a manager seeks cost, revenue, or profit data.A Sales TerritoryA segment is a part or activity of an organization about which managers would like cost, revenue, or profit data. Examples of segments include divisions of a company, sales territories, individual stores, service centers, manufacturing plants, marketing departments, individual customers, and product lines.A Service Center

144 Keys to Segmented Income Statements 10-14410-144Keys to Segmented Income StatementsThere are two keys to building segmented income statements:A contribution format should be used because it separates fixed from variable costs and it enables the calculation of a contribution margin.There are two keys to building segmented income statements.First, a contribution format should be used because it separates fixed from variable costs and it enables the calculation of a contribution margin. The contribution margin is especially useful in decisions involving temporary uses of capacity, such as special orders.Second, traceable fixed costs should be separated from common fixed costs to enable the calculation of a segment margin.Traceable fixed costs should be separated from common fixed costs to enable the calculation of a segment margin.
145 Identifying Traceable Fixed Costs 10-14510-145Identifying Traceable Fixed CostsTraceable costs arise because of the existence of a particular segment and would disappear over time if the segment itself disappeared.No computerdivision means . . .No computerdivision manager.A traceable fixed cost of a segment is a fixed cost that is incurred because of the existence of the segment. If the segment were eliminated, the fixed cost would disappear. Examples of traceable fixed costs include the following:The salary of the Fritos product manager at PepsiCo is a traceable fixed cost of the Fritos business segment of PepsiCo.The maintenance cost for the building in which Boeing 747s are assembled is a traceable fixed cost of the 747 business segment of Boeing.
146 Identifying Common Fixed Costs 10-14610-146Identifying Common Fixed CostsCommon costs arise because of the overall operation of the company and would not disappear if any particular segment were eliminated.No computerdivision but . . .We still have aCEO.A common fixed cost is a fixed cost that supports the operations of more than one segment, but is not traceable in whole or in part to any one segment. Examples of common fixed costs include the following:The salary of the CEO of General Motors is a common fixed cost of the various divisions of General Motors.The cost of heating a Safeway or Kroger grocery store is a common fixed cost of the various departments – groceries, produce, and bakery.
147 Traceable Costs Can Become Common Costs 10-14710-147Traceable Costs Can Become Common CostsIt is important to realize that the traceable fixed costs of one segment may be a common fixed cost of another segment.For example, the landing fee paid to land an airplane at an airport is traceable to the particular flight, but it is not traceable to first-class, business-class, and economy-class passengers.It is important to realize that the traceable fixed costs of one segment may be a common fixed cost of another segment. For example, the landing fee paid to land an airplane at an airport is traceable to a particular flight, but it is not traceable to first-class, business-class, and economy-class passengers.
148 10-148Segment Margin10-148The segment margin, which is computed by subtracting the traceable fixed costs of a segment from its contribution margin, is the best gauge of the long-run profitability of a segment.A segment margin is computed by subtracting the traceable fixed costs of a segment from its contribution margin. The segment margin is a valuable tool for assessing the long-run profitability of a segment.Segment MarginTime

150 Activity-Based Costing 10-150Activity-Based Costing10-150Activity-based costing can help identify how costs shared by more than one segment are traceable to individual segments.Assume that three products, 9-inch, 12-inch, and 18-inch pipe, share 10,000 square feet of warehousing space, which is leased at a price of $4 per square foot.If the 9-inch, 12-inch, and 18-inch pipes occupy 1,000, 4,000, and 5,000 square feet, respectively, then ABC can be used to trace the warehousing costs to the three products as shown.Activity-based costing can help identify how costs shared by more than one segment are traceable to individual segments.For example, assume that three products, a 9-inch, a 12-inch, and an 18-inch pipe, share 10,000 square feet of warehousing space, which is leased at a price of $4 per square foot.If the 9-inch, 12-inch, and 18-inch pipes occupy 1,000, 4,000, and 5,000 square feet, respectively, then activity-based costing can be used to trace the warehousing costs to the three products as shown.When using activity-based costing to trace fixed costs to segments, managers must still ask themselves if the traceable costs that they have identified would disappear over time, if the segment disappeared. In this example, if the warehouse was owned rather than leased, perhaps the warehousing costs assigned to a given segment would not disappear if the segment was discontinued.
151 Levels of Segmented Statements 10-15110-151Levels of Segmented StatementsWebber, Inc. has two divisions.Webber, Inc.Computer DivisionTelevision DivisionAssume that Webber, Inc. has two divisions – the Computer Division and the Television Division.Let’s look more closely at the Television Division’s income statement.
152 Levels of Segmented Statements 10-152Levels of Segmented Statements10-152Our approach to segment reporting uses the contribution format.Cost of goodssold consists ofvariable manufacturingcosts.The contribution format income statement for the Television Division is as shown. Notice that:Cost of goods sold consists of variable manufacturing costs; andFixed and variable costs are listed in separate sections.Fixed andvariable costsare listed inseparatesections.
153 Levels of Segmented Statements 10-153Levels of Segmented Statements10-153Our approach to segment reporting uses the contribution format.Contribution marginis computed by taking sales minus variable costs.Also notice that:Contribution margin is computed by subtracting variable costs from sales; andThe divisional segment margin represents the Television Division’s contribution to overall company profits.Segment marginis Television’scontributionto profits.
154 Levels of Segmented Statements 10-154Levels of Segmented Statements10-154The Television Division’s results can be rolled into Webber, Inc.’s overall results as shown. Notice that the results of the Television and Computer Divisions sum to the results shown for the whole company.
155 Levels of Segmented Statements 10-155Levels of Segmented Statements10-155The common costs for the company as a whole ($25,000) are not allocated to the divisions. Common costs are not allocated to segments because these costs would remain even if one of the divisions were eliminated.Common costs should not be allocated to the divisions. These costs would remain even if one of the divisions were eliminated.
156 Traceable Costs Can Become Common Costs 10-15610-156Traceable Costs Can Become Common CostsAs previously mentioned, fixed costs that are traceable to one segment can become common if the company is divided into smaller segments.The Television Division’s results can also be broken down into smaller segments. This enables us to see how traceable fixed costs of the Television Division can become common costs of smaller segments.Let’s see how this works using the Webber, Inc. example!

160 10-160External Reports10-160The Financial Accounting Standards Board now requires that companies in the United States include segmented financial data in their annual reports.Companies must report segmented results to shareholders using the same methods that are used for internal segmented reports.Since the contribution approach to segment reporting does not comply with GAAP, it is likely that some managers will choose to construct their segmented financial statements using the absorption approach to comply with GAAP.The Financial Accounting Standards Board now requires that companies in the United States include segmented financial data in their annual reports. This ruling has implications for internal segment reporting because:It mandates that companies report segmented results to shareholders using the same methods that are used for internal segmented reports.Since the contribution approach to segment reporting does not comply with GAAP, it is likely that some managers will choose to construct their segmented financial statements using the absorption approach to comply with GAAP. The absorption approach hinders internal decision making because it does not distinguish between fixed and variable costs or common and traceable costs.
161 10-161Omission of Costs10-161Costs assigned to a segment should include all costs attributable to that segment from the company’s entire value chain.Business FunctionsMaking Up TheValue ChainThe costs assigned to a segment should include all the costs attributable to that segment from the company’s entire value chain. The value chain consists of all major business functions that add value to a company’s products and services.Since only manufacturing costs are included in product costs under absorption costing, those companies that choose to use absorption costing for segment reporting purposes will omit from their profitability analysis all “upstream” and “downstream” costs. “Upstream” costs include research and development and product design costs. “Downstream” costs include marketing, distribution, and customer service costs. Although these “upstream” and “downstream” costs are not manufacturing costs, they are just as essential to determining product profitability as are manufacturing costs. Omitting them from profitability analysis will result in the undercosting of products.Product CustomerR&D Design Manufacturing Marketing Distribution Service
162 Inappropriate Methods of Allocating Costs Among Segments 10-16210-162Inappropriate Methods of Allocating Costs Among SegmentsFailure to tracecosts directlyInappropriateallocation baseCosts that can be traced directly to specific segments of a company should not be allocated to other segments. Rather, such costs should be charged directly to the responsible segment. For example, the rent for a branch office of an insurance company should be charged directly against the branch office rather than included in a companywide overhead pool and then spread throughout the company.Some companies allocate costs to segments using arbitrary bases. Costs should be allocated to segments for internal decision making purposes only when the allocation base actually drives the cost being allocated. For example, sales is frequently used to allocate selling and administrative expenses to segments. This should only be done if sales drive these expenses.Segment1Segment2Segment3Segment4
163 Common Costs and Segments 10-163Common Costs and Segments10-163Common costs should not be arbitrarily allocated to segments based on the rationale that “someone has to cover the common costs” for two reasons:This practice may make a profitable business segment appear to be unprofitable.Allocating common fixed costs forces managers to be held accountable for costs they cannot control.Common costs should not be arbitrarily allocated to segments based on the rationale that “someone has to cover the common costs” for two reasons:First, this practice may make a profitable business segment appear to be unprofitable. If the segment is eliminated the revenue lost may exceed the traceable costs that are avoided.Second, allocating common fixed costs forces managers to be held accountable for costs that they cannot control.Segment1Segment2Segment3Segment4

173 Transfer PricingThe transferred good is revenue to the selling division and cost to the buying division. This value is called transfer pricing.
174 Transfer Pricing: General Concerns Some Major IssuesImpact on divisional performance measuresImpact on firm wide profitsImpact on divisional autonomy
175 Transfer Pricing Approaches Market priceNegotiated transfer pricesCost-based transfer pricesFull costFull cost plus markupVariable cost plus fixed fee
176 A Transfer Pricing Problem Assume the following data for Division A:Capacity in units ,000Selling price to outside $15Variable cost per unitFixed costs per unit (based on capacity) 5Division B would like to purchase units for Division A. Division B is currently purchasing 5,000 units per year from an outside source at a cost of $14.
177 A Transfer Problem Example (continued) 1. Assume division A has idle capacity in excess of 10,000 units:Minimum transfer price = Variable cost + Lost contribution margin= $8 + $0= $82. Assume division A is working at capacity:Transfer Price = Variable cost + Lost contribution margin= $8 + $7= $15 (market price)3. Assume division A is working at capacity, but a negotiated $2 in variable costs can be avoided on intercompany sales.Transfer Price = Variable cost + Lost contribution margin= $6 + $7= $13 (negotiated price)
