CORE Fitness Inc. is a high-end athletic gear manufacturer. The production of gear involves many complex and specialized activities that, before now, have lacked organization or procedural direction. The production manager has considered applying a systematic costing system to improve on efficiency of production, and he wants your advice about activity-based costing (ABC).
However, while the production manager wants your advice, he has argued that interrupting the existing costing system would be a detriment to the factory. In contrast, the entry-level accountant believes an ABC system would in fact assist the company more effectively in identifying the basis of costs and how to actually regulate the costs.
Role play as either the production manager or the entry-level accountant to convince the other person to agree with your stance.
