Discuss how a time driven ABC cost system can be implemented in thecompany you researched and the benefits that the use will yield to the business performance

First, this service company uses a hub and spoke concept so they are always in the right place to assist their partners.This tells me that HMS has already looked at TDABC and understands that moving services closer to their partners saves time and money.  Even with this concept in place, there is always room for improvement, and this is how HMS can design TDABC to improve their services.

After you have buy-in from management, the ABC team will need to be selected.  Exhibit 1 from the article “Implementing Activity-based Costing” tells us the typical ACB project team consists of the following members:

  1. Service manager who has the knowledge of the service area being researched
  2. Service engineer who has the knowledge of the service design
  3. Management/cost accountant who has knowledge of information sources and needs

Service management who has the knowledge of vendors and material requirements
