In your initial post, imagine that you are a business manager. Your board of directors has requested that you report on the significance and impact of utilizing activity-based costing (ABC) over a single plant-wide predetermined overhead rate (POHR). Using your required readings this week, you will create a brief presentation for your investors analyzing the pros and cons of using ABC, including a comparison of at least two of the activity rates versus the single plant-wide POHR with calculations.
