Lecture 6 – Decision Making

AYB225 - management accounting

15 Pages University of Southern Queensland Partial Study Notes Year: 2016

INTRODUCTION TO DECISION MAKING Characteristics of Decision Information • Information accumulated for decision-making will include many characteristics, but also some that are specifically relevant to the decision-needs of managers. Cost Behaviour • Many of the decision-making techniques rely on a clear understanding of the behaviour of costs. o For example, CVP analysis is based entirely on the separation of costs into their fixed and variable categories. o Also review the pitfalls of incorrectly using unit costs. If the cost we are dealing with is a fixed cost, then for most decision-making issues (product pricing is an exception) per unit fixed costs should not be used - the total amount of the fixed costs is the appropriate item. Opportunity Cost • Opportunity cost is the revenue/profit foregone by not choosing its next-best alternative. • Opportunity cost is the contribution to income that is foregone (rejected) by not using a limited resource in its next-best alternative use. • Sunk Costs • These are costs which have been incurred in the past. They do not affect future costs and cannot be changed by any current or future action. • Sunk costs are never relevant costs. A common error when doing decision-making problems is to include sunk costs in the analysis.
