Cost analysis and performance measurement is fundamentally an important process. In most cases, to measure performance, cost analysts begin by measuring resources consumed (cost items). Next, they match (assign) cost items to cost objects. Finally, they account for the prices paid (historical cost) to acquire cost items and adjust those prices to reflect economic reality. Based on real case studies, this 5-day course covers the fundamentals of costing in order to accumulate and assign cost elements to units produced or service rendered and finally evaluate the performance.
