When companies accumulate costs, they generally use either a job-order or a process costing system. The type of system used often varies based on the type of product or service provided.
Using the module readings, Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, locate an article on how a company utilized a cost accumulation system.
Respond to the following:
- Identify and describe the type of cost accumulation system that was used.
- Explain how the system was used and, specifically, how overhead was allocated.
- Discuss how the use of cost accumulation enhanced the company’s operations.
By the due date assigned, post your response to the Discussion Area. Through the end of the module, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses.
