Anthony Research. A cost accounting exercise

An interactive exercise which encourages students to explore alternative designs for a job cost system. After studying the current cost system of a company, students will simulate alternative approaches and monitor the affects on costs and profits. The case is based around four exercises: - cost behaviour and the classification of costs - job cost systems - tracing of additional costs - alternative allocation bases Through a series of questions (with feedback), students are encouraged to explore tracing different costs and allocation bases to make comparisons on the validity of different job cost systems.
