...Isa becoming more and more popular [3-7] ABC aims to provide accurate costing information to managers to allocate activity costs to products and services by applying cost drivers [8]. Academics who advocate ABC, such as, Cooper and Kaplan [9], and Swenson [10] argue that it provides more accurate cost data needed to make appropriate strategic decisions about product mix, sourcing, pricing, process improvement, and evaluation of business process performance. These claims have led many firms to adopt ABC systems [8]. The benefits of ABC and its positive impact on firm’s performance motivated a numerous studies which examined various aspects of ABC. Among such studies are McGowan [11] who assessed the integrity of ABC success, Innes and Mitchell [4, 12] and Yanren [13] who conducted research on factors affecting ABC adoption, and Shield [3], Shields and McEwen [14], Gosselin [15] and Baired et al.[16, 17]who concentrated on factors influencing ABC success especially at the implementation stage. However, there is mounting evidence that suggests most of firms are experiencing problems in implementing ABC and, in some extreme cases, ABC implementation is not successful [3], which later resulted in abandoning the ABC systems altogether [15]. Questions arise as to why ABC implementation is successful in certain companies and fails in others. Based on the contingency theory, researchers have argued that the reasons for different degrees of ABC success could be due to the different......

...Activity Based Costing (ABC) over other costing systems. Also identify at least one company that uses ABC and describe how it benefits the company. Introduction This paper has been formulated in order to determine the basic nature of Activity Based Costing, its advantages and disadvantages. These points are further elucidated by a case study of a Taiwanese hot spring country inn’s implementation of the ABC system. What is Activity Based Costing The Activity-Based Costing theory started in 1987 by Robert S. Kaplan and W. Bruns as a better alternative to the traditional costing method. It has activities as the fundamental cost objects and assumes that activities cause costs and that cost objects create demands for the activities. A traditional costing system uses a single, volume based cost driver. In most cases the traditional system assigned the overhead cost to products on the basis of their usage of direct labor. For this reason traditional cost systems often yields inaccurate product costs and becomes inadequate in terms of calculating true cost to produce specific products for specific customers. ABC system was developed to overcome the shortcomings of the traditional method by using many cost drivers to allocate a indirect costs instead of just using one cost driver such as machine hours. ABC system uses a different approach and allows improvement on the control of overheads by cost/cause relationships that are activity and cost. This flexible system is able to......

A DBMS includes: Data models: A modeling language to define the schema of each database hosted in the DBMS, according to the DBMS data model.  The four most common types of organizations are the hierarchical, network, relational and object models. Inverted lists and other methods are also used. A given database management system may provide one or more of the four models. The optimal structure depends on the natural organization of the application's data, and on the application's requirements (which include transaction rate (speed), reliability, maintainability, scalability, and cost).  The dominant model in use today is the ad hoc one embedded in SQL, despite the objections of purists who believe this model is a corruption of the relational model, since it violates several of its fundamental principles for the sake of practicality and performance. Many DBMSs also support the Open Database Connectivity API that supports a standard way for programmers to access the DBMS. Data structures:......

...substitute product of the same thing that gives the same output and has the same quality and same life span and is cheaper than that of the brand. If this substitute does happen to give the same output as expected from the branded product, there is a higher chance of the substitute to sell more than the brand. Weird part is, the product is the same and since it's the same, it is obvious that the production cost should have been similar so how is it possible to know whether the substitute company was actually making a profit or a loss. Have they forgotten to consider a few things, or is the big brand trying to rip customers off? Well in order to sort out such a dilemma, we use Activity Based Costing. Activity Based Costing (also known as ABC) is a  is a costing methodology that identifies activities in an organization and assigns the cost of each activity with resources to all products and services according to the actual consumption by each. This model assigns more indirect costs (overhead) into direct costs compared to conventional costing. Activity-based management (ABM) is a method of identifying and evaluating activities that a business performs using activity-based costing to carry out a value chain analysis or a re-engineering initiative to improve strategic and operational decisions in an organization. Activity-based costing establishes relationships between overhead costs and activities so that overhead costs can be more precisely allocated to products, services, or...

Abc Online Campus Management System (Abc-Cms)

... ABC Online Campus Management System (ABC-CMS) 1. Introduction ABC campus management system is an online system which will be used to manage and facilitate the educational activities of ABC University. The system will help the university to maintain student’s details as well as staff. In addition to this, the system will work as a platform communication where lectures, non-academic staff and students can communicate. Resource, announcements and other important materials will be uploaded on the system. On the other hand, student will use the system to register online and check their grades without going to the registry office. By using this online computerized system, the university will be able to save a lot of time and money since tedious and manual work is eliminated. 1.1. Problem Statement It is very time consuming and expensive to handle large number of students and doing things manually will exponentially increase time and money spent on it. More staff will be needed and the workflow will be very slow thus making it very inefficient and tedious. The ABC University has realized the benefits of computerized system to manage such a large number of students and staff. It is expected that this new system will cater all the needs of the university and enable it to save more money and time. In addition to the previous two advantages, the main goal of the system is to make the university day to day operations and functions faster, more efficient and reliable. 1.2. Purpose......

An Automated Hostel and Room Allocation System.

...ABSTRACT AN AUTOMATED HOSTELS AND ROOMS ALLOCATION SYSTEM (CASE STUDY OF YABA COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY) This Project work intends to address some of the problems encountered in the allocation of hostels and rooms to students manually in Yaba College of Technology. The growing number of students in higher institutions posed a lot of accommodation problems on the part of students and School Management. Some of the problem caused includes, few hostels that exist in the College are not properly managed, Statistic of rooms required to match the growing numbers of students are farfetched, Student pays fee for hostel and may end up not getting rooms because of lack of bed space, Hostel administrators cannot give accurate information of the occupancy of a particular room. In respect to all these existing problems, a system will be designed to manage a database for allocating hostel and room to student. The system designed will keep track of all the available rooms, their occupants and funds generated from hostel fees. The New system will be implemented using Visual Basic 6.0 and Ms Access Database. CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY In 1912, in Altena Castle in Germany, Richard Schirrmann created the first permanent Jugendherberge or "Youth Hostel". These first Youth Hostels were an exponent of the ideology of the German Youth Movement to let poor city youngsters breathe fresh air outdoors. The youths were supposed to manage the......

...trained professional to manage the business. The management business billing of a hotel system was virtually left in the hands of the front officers. The front office in hotels is the department responsible for the scale of hotel rooms through systematic method of reservation, followed by registration and assigning of rooms to customers, it was usually done manually. This was boring and cumbersome in hotels that still operate manually today. This development in hotel business billing system continued gradually until recently when computer was invented as an electronic method of processing data, computer can be defined as an electronic device that accept input, manipulated data and produces information which is the output, as required. Computerization of hotel business billing system: a focus on the lodging system of a hotel, therefore, the application of computer in the lodging system of a hotel. A hotel which operated a computerized system will ensure that the program carries provision for different tariffs, locations and individual guest preferences. Details of each room are stored within the memory and as a guest registers the guest list is immediately updated while that particular room is removed from the list of those which are available for letting. Because the system is so accurate, there is little chance of two people being given same room. 1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY The lodging system of Capital Hotel started when this hotel was established in 2012 at its......

Identify key factors for successful ABC/M implementation PART I Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship. Benjamin Franklin This chapter has a lot to do with implementing the spirit of Benjamin Franklin’s observation—in cost management terms—that it really does matter how accurately you calculate a cost. Why? Having accurate costs is important for a variety of reasons: a company might find that it has a difficult time determining which of its products is most profitable. Alternatively, it finds its sales increasing but profits declining and cannot understand why. Perhaps the company keeps losing competitive bids for products and services and does not understand why. In many cases, accurate cost information is the answer to these questions. Accurate cost information provides a......
