Although today some companies have characteristics of the broken systems in Stage I, most are operating with Stage II systems. Even with excellent design, standard Stage II cost systems can have serious limitations for costing processes, products, customers, and providing timely feedback to front-line employees. Focusing on these Stage II systems, this chapter provides a baseline for the improvements documented in the remainder of the book for making systems more relevant and useful for managerial purposes. It also includes an appendix on the GPK cost system.
