Class, week four will cover chapters nine (Introduction to Managerial Accounting and Cost Savings), ten (Cost Estimation and Cost-Volume-Profit Relationships), and eleven (Product Costing: Attaching Costs to Patient Services) in the textbook. This week you will describe how management accounting is a value added discipline in determining product and business segment costs; interpret how cost behavior, operating leverage, and profitability work; define how costs are accumulated and assigned to products and services; and determine relevant factors affecting business decision making.
Research and select the journal articles you will use as sources for your Case Study. Summarize the articles and prepare an annotated bibliography. These sources will be used in support of the final assignment (Case Study). Websites are not Journal articles.
