Activity based costing (ABC) often revalues existing costing systems by looking at specific activities that drive costs. Through this identification of the key activities, we define the cost objects as these activities. In order to first achieve ABC in a business, we need to do the following:
- Identify the key activities performed.
- Realize the costs associated with these activities.
- Assign these activities to cost objects.
Select two examples of processes that exist in a business and specify each of the above three elements for each process in order to create an ABC model for the examples. Share the process you undertook to do this and why you chose it.
Please make this 1-2 paragraphs and in APA format.
Please include a reference page and site sources within the paper.
