Activity based costing:

No more dubious overhead surcharges

Most companies are clear about  their “productive” costs:

material usage, external services, machine hourly rates, employee hourly rates.

But what about the “unproductive” costs such as administration, distribution, research & development? How should they be offset against the products and services? In most companies, this only happens in the form of less or more dubious overheads.

In 3 steps to 100% truth about the costs and 10 to 30% more productivity

Do you want to get rid of the dubious overheads? And achieve a 100% accurate information about the costs – even the fixed one? Would you like to exploit this knowledge to selectively and effectively increase your productivity by up to 30%?

Why are you satisfied with only partial information about the costs?

Many entrepreneurs are still having the classic overhead surcharge of around 15% in their heads today. But this approach, created in  the 1990s, does no longer work today. Today, when the fixed costs can reach the level of 50% and more.

Fixed costs: Today's productivity lever

Hardly any company knows the productivity of the employees in their individual work steps. Overall, this results in a relatively low average productivity of 61.6%. A simple announcement of the productivity of the individual work steps can increase the employee’s motivation and lead to the productivity raise.
