Complex cost modelling made clear and reliable
Gain Insight in your cost structure and strengthen your decision making
Top-Down cost modelling types
Historical, current and LRIC
Historical cost accounting – fully allocated costing: all historical costs are 100% distributed over all end products or services accounted for in the model.
Current cost accounting – fully allocated costing: all current costs are 100% distributed over all end products or services accounted for in the model.
Long run incremental costing: all incremental fixed and variable costs for subsets of end-products are identified based on cost/volume relationships of source costs.
