  • 2. Activity based management is a logical technique of planning, controlling and improving labour and overhead cost.
  • 3. It hinges on the principle “activities consume costs”. Whereas traditional cost system focuses on the ‘worker’, activity based management focuses on ‘work’.
  • 4. Activity based management is a methodical analysis for improving operational systems and control so as to enhance value deliverables to clients and boost corporate profitability.
  • 5. Merits of Activity Based Management • It increases effectiveness of key business processes, activities and tasks by keeping costs at barest minimum while increasing value to clients. • It improves management focus through allocation of resources to value added activities, customers, products and continuous improvement system for maintaining competitive advantage.
  • 6. Activity Framework Input Activities Output
  • 7. Resources These are components required for performance of activities. Three categories of resources are as follows: • Labour • Physical • Material
  • 8. Resources Hierarchy Unit Level Batch Level Product Level Customer Level Facility Level
  • 9. Unit level resources are obtained for unit of product. Example of unit level resource is material or labour acquired for unit of product. Batch level resources are obtained for production of similar goods. Example of batch level resource is ten tins of ink which had been purchased for production of a group of similar products. Product level resources are obtained for manufacturing of a specific product. Example of product level resource is a special machine bought for producing only a specific product. Customer level resource is obtained due to decision to serve a particular customer. Example of customer level resource is a special equipment bought and installed for contract production programme of a customer. Facility level resource is obtained for utilization as common capacity within a company. Example of facility level resource is ‘top management’ of a company.
  • 10. Cost Object A cost object is an item for which costs are accumulated. It’s the reason for performing an activity and stands as the final point to which cost should be traced. Examples of cost objects are completed purchase orders, completed projects, customer, contract, finished products.
  • 11. Cost Driver A cost driver is a variable that demonstrates a logical and quantifiable cause and effect relationship between the use of resources, performance of activities and cost object. It’s a factor that can generate effect of changing the level of total cost for a cost object.
  • 12. Categories of Cost Drivers Structural Cost Driver Executional Cost Driver Resource Cost Driver Activity Cost Driver
  • 13. Structural Cost Driver These are decisions about the type of resources that an organisation should obtain. It determines and drives the overall makeup and structure of costs. Examples of Structural Cost Driver in your firm are ........................................... ………………………………………………………………………… ……………………………………………………………………… ……
  • 14. Executional Cost Driver They are decisions about the specific processes and activities that consume an organization's resources. Examples of Executional Cost Driver in your firm are …………………….. ………………………………………………………………………… ……………………………………………………………………… ……
  • 15. Resource Cost Driver Resource Cost Driver is a factor that determines the level of consumption of resources by activity. The Resource Cost Driver of a material input is decision about the percentage of that material per unit volume.
  • 16. Activity Cost Driver Activity Cost Driver is a factor which causes activity to be consumed by cost object. Purchase requisition is the activity cost driver of purchase order. Number of movement required is the activity cost driver of moving from one point to another in a production facility.
  • 17. Organizational Application of Activity Based Management • • • • • • Budgeting and Forecasting Performance Monitoring Process Improvement Controlling Shared Services Product Profitability Analysis Customer Profitability Analysis
  • 18. Problems of Traditional Budget System • • • • • • • It focuses on function instead of processes. It focuses on cutting costs instead of improvement. It does not classify wastage. It’s not designed to recognize work or workload. It focuses on input and not output. It does not focus on quality and time. The information it provides shows what happened, but does not demonstrate why and how it happened.
  • 19. Performance Monitoring Activity based management is used for performance monitoring through identification of performance goals, communication of targets to all employees, and controlling activities with the intention to achieve afore stated performance level.
  • 20. Process Improvement Activity Based Management can be applied in the analysis of business processes with the aim of discovering constraint points and non-value adding activities; after which improvement would be effected by optimizing activity work flow.
  • 21. Controlling Shared Services A shared service in an organisation shows the supply of service from one section to others, highlighting the role and consumption pattern of that service across the board. Activity Based Management shows the true picture of size, type and cost of service provided by each support unit in an organisation.
  • 22. Product Profitability Activity Based Management provides a system for determining actual product profitability level by capturing the resources consumption flow in the total activities for production of an output.
  • 23. Customer Profitability Analysis Activity Based Management identifies resources, activities, costs and profit involved in servicing various customers of an organisation, thereby enabling thorough analysis of customers.
