  37. 37. Closing and Q&A 38
  38. 38. Does your company understand the true costs of its products or services? Are costing models transparent enough? Can you easily trace back the assigned costs to the activities and line item expenses that drive them? Do your costing methods operate at the right level of detail? Are you satisfied that you are allocating shared services (e.g. IT/HR) accurately? Are people spending too much time maintaining our costing models and other elements of our costing system? Can people in your company quickly test how changes to commodity, input costs, lower or higher volumes will affect our profitability? Are you getting answers from our costing systems fast enough to be actionable? Would reducing this process time improve our competitiveness or profitability? Is all of the data that you need to understand true costs available in a single ERP system? If not, what are the initial and ongoing costs of integrating that data into your ERP system? Self-Evaluation Questions 39
