|Key features|| |
NEW--The Activity-Based Costing chapter has been completely rewritten to emphasize decision-making in both service and manufacturing companies. This content is now placed in Chapter 8. The previous edition's chapter on ABC (Ch. 5)covered how to compute unit product costs for external reporting using an ABC approach. The new ABC chapter focuses on how to develop and use ABC costing data for decision-making. The chapter order was changed from 5 to 8 because the new ABC chapter fits naturally after the variable costing chapter. Variable costing is a valuable tool for making decisions that do not involve changes in capacity. ABC is a tool that can be used for making decisions that involve changes in capacity. Further, students need a better understanding of cost behavior and of Cost-Volume-Profit analysis before covering ABC from a decision-making perspective. The Cost of Quality material has been moved to an appendix at the back of the book.
NEW--Chapter 10, Standard Costs and the Balanced Scorecard, has integrated coverage of the balanced scorecard with the material on operating performance measures. This coverage is up-to-date content that is important because many companies are using the balanced scorecard to evaluate their performance.
NEW--Spreadsheet Integration. Budgeting is a function for which most managerial accountants use spreadsheets. Therefore, to help students recognize the importance of spreadsheets as a budgeting tool and to assist them in understanding how budgets look in a spreadsheet, all exhibits pertaining to the budgeting chapters will appear in actual Microsoft Excel spreadsheet screen captures. This is a unique feature for the managerial accounting market.
NEW--Chapter openers help students relate chapter concepts with the real world.
NEW--Technology including Presentation Manager CD-ROM (includes Instructor's Manual, Test Bank, Transparency Acetates, PowerPoint Presentation and video clips), FREE student CD-ROM (includes the tutorial and selected video clips), Online Learning Center, and telecourse (produced in conjunction with the LeCroy Center, part of the Dallas County Community College District, and the McGraw-Hill Learning Architecture.
