Kemps is making a strategy shift: from being focused on fulfilling customer requests to becoming the best cost dairy producer in the industry. Its existing manufacturing cost system, however, fails to capture the costs associated with handling special flavors, small production orders, and complex delivery and order processing options. The company introduces a new system--time-driven, activity-based costing--that captures the full complexity of its operations and gives managers new insights into the profitability of orders, products, and customers. The time equations feature simply and accurately represents the cost impact of all possible options from a particular production order. Managers use the information to enhance process efficiencies, negotiate new terms with customers, and attempt to win new business. The company now faces some crucial decisions about how to forge new relationships with key customers.
