Many manufacturing facilities rely on highly inaccurate plant-wide burden rates or outdated costing systems. In this course you will learn how to rapidly upgrade your ability to increase the accuracy of your costing process. Real-world experts will train management staff in the hands-on and how-to of setting up highly accurate costing systems.
You’ll be shown examples and real-life cases based on the types of costing typically encountered in the manufacturing setting.
The Manufacturing Costing – Transitioning to a More Accurate Costing System course provides key insights into the crucial elements for maximizing accuracy of costing systems, including machine-specific burden rate development, volume impact and a transition to a machine standard hour vs. labor standard hour application.
Participants in the course will understand how to:
- Generate machine-specific burden rates
- Apply volume impact to parts and to the plant as a whole
- Properly separate SGA from plant burden
- Apply a more accurate costing system to parts and quotes
- Be equipped with takeaway tools to implement the knowledge gained
