Cost Management

...1: MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING Introduction: Accounting may be broadly classified into two categories – accounting which is meant to serve all parties external to the operating responsibility of the firms and the accounting which is designed to serve internal parties who take care of the operational needs of the firm. The first category which is conventionally referred to as financial accounting, looks to the interest of those who have primarily a financial stake in the organization’s affairs – creditors, investors, employees etc. On the other hand the second category of accounting is primarily concerned with providing information relating to the conduct of the various aspects of a business like cost or profit associated with some portions of business operations to the internal parties viz., management. This category of accounting is called as Management accounting. In order to perform the primary task of decision making managers of business enterprises need information about the past, present and future in the functional areas of management such as personnel, finance, marketing and production. Right decision making has to be based on quantitative and qualitative information. The management thus constantly needs accounting information to base its decisions upon. Thus management accounting provides the information needed by management personnel. Definition: The Institute of Chartered Accountants of England has defined management accounting as: “Any form of accounting......

How Inventory Can Be Managed?

... Inventory Management Meaning, concept and definition of Inventory: Inventory is stores of goods and stocks. In manufacturing, items in inventory are called stock keeping items, held at a stock [storage] point. Stock keeping items usually are raw materials, work-in progress, finished products and supplies. It is the stock of any item or resource used in an organization. Inventory control is activities that maintain stock keeping items at desired levels. In manufacturing, since the focus is on a physical product, inventory control focuses on material control. In the service sector, since the focus is on a service [often consumed as generated], inventory control focuses less on materials and more on supplies. For service organizations that are not highly labor-intense, inventories assume more importance. Transit systems maintain inventories of equipment and replacement parts. Local department stores maintain inventories of merchandise. Production/ operation management focuses on conversion of inputs into outputs of goods and services. This conversion process is reexamined to emphasize material input. Note that there may be stock points at the input [raw materials], conversion [work-in-progress], and output [product] stages. By convention, manufacturing inventory generally refers to items that contribute to or become part of a firm’s product output. Manufacturing inventory is typically classified into raw materials, finished products, components parts, supplies, and work in......
