  18. Managing Costs • Be able to identify cost behavior & present costs in this manner in order to effectively plan & manage them • Activity-based management (ABM) requires understanding how the activities produce a product & affect its cost, therefore by managing the activities you can control its costs • Effective cost control requires an understanding of how producing a product involves activities & how those activities cause costs to be incurred • Activity-based management studies the need for activities & whether they are operating efficiently

  19. Value-Added Activities Value-added activities increase the product’s service to customers • Managers try to eliminate non-value-added activities to reduce costs without reducing the product’s service potential to customers The value chain describes the linked set of activities that add value to the products or services of the organization
