TDABC exploits these rich data sets online and inexpensively. In summary, the synergistic combination of new theory, streamlined and standardized processes, and new systems has provided the platform on which accurate and inexpensive timedriven cost and profitability models can be built. ESTIMATING TIME CONSUMPTION The key input into a TDABC model is the time (capacity) required to perform an activity, such as processing an order, performing a production run, or servicing a customer. For more than a century, industrial engineers have estimated standard times for the work performed by direct labor or machines.

We start with the numerator by discussing how to aggregate costs within a department. We consider when to measure the capacity cost rate at the departmental level or at a process level within the department. We then turn to measuring practical capacity, the denominator, including the treatment of peak and seasonal capacity and the assignment of capacity supplied for particular customers segments. Finally, we discuss the trade-offs between budgeted and actual costs in a period, and the role of variance analysis when a company uses budgeted (standard) cost rates.

Operations people, knowing how meticulous this individual was, accepted his sign-off as a guarantee of model accuracy. ASSIGNING COSTS DIRECTLY ON THE BASIS OF PERCENTAGE OF TIME CONSUMED Many of the early implementations of TDABC, including several case studies described in part II of this book, used an expedited and simplified approach when the companies built their models. These companies assigned actual monthly departmental costs directly to transactions, products, and customers on the basis of the proportion of actual time used by each transaction.
