 Synopsis:

The subject presents an introduction to the problems of value management as the enterprise on the whole and its parts  centres  by means of budgeting (expected cost), so the individual achievements (intermediate products, products, services)  by means of preliminary costing (expected costs) and actual costing (actual costs). Emphasis is laid on the relation of costs on the whole  enterprise costs  to the costs of individual achievements and the understanding of the transformation from costs in the budgeting and accounting structure (individual cost items) into the costing structure (direct and overhead costs), and fixed and variable costs. There are taught conventional and also modern approaches in costing. The subject Cost
Accounting is connected directly with the subject Accounting and represents an introduction to the problems of cost allocation to separate products, which are compared with the market price and finding out as their profitability, so their acceptability or unacceptability manufacturing program.
