Study Unit 1 – Ethics for Management Accountants and Cost Management Concepts
Page 32, Subunit 1.6, 3.c.: This edit clarifies allocation of manufacturing costs using activity-based
costing.
c. Activity-based costing (ABC) attaches costs to activities rather than to physical goods first
assigns resource costs to activities. These activity costs are then assigned to physical
goods.
1) ABC is a response to the distortions of product cost information brought about by
peanut-butter costing, which is the inaccurate averaging or spreading of costs like
peanut butter over products or service units that use different amounts of resources.
a) A major cause of the problems associated with peanut-butter costing is the
significant increase in indirect costs brought about by the increasing use of
technology.
