This course emphasizes contemporary topics in strategic cost management through an understanding of the underlying concepts and fundamental techniques involved in cost accounting for manufacturing and service companies. Job-order, process, and standard costing are examined to support an understanding of just-in-time and activity based systems, continuous improvement, quality measurements, and the theory of constraints, among others. Emphasis is on how cost management systems, with their performance evaluation and reward systems, encourage efforts to achieve an organization’s strategic goals.
