NASHVILLE, Tenn.-September 1, 2004- Point Balance Publishing, a leading provider of executive education materials and related resources to the printing, publishing, and converting industries, today announced the publication of Activity-Based Costing at CMYK Communications written by G. David Dodd and William K. Lavelle. Activity-Based Costing at CMYK Communications is an important new resource for graphic communications company managers who want to gain the profit-enhancing benefits of activity-based costing.
Co-author G. David Dodd noted that Activity-Based Costing at CMYK Communications is an important supplement to his and Lavelle’s first book, Activity-Based Costing for Printers: An Implementation Guide, published in May 2003. "In the fifteen months since Activity-Based Costing for Printers was published," observed Dodd, "we have received numerous requests from owners and managers of graphic communications companies for a more in-depth and detailed treatment of several aspects of the ABC implementation process. Activity-Based Costing at CMYK Communications is our response to those requests."
This valuable implementation resource focuses on the most critical task in any ABC implementation-constructing the ABC cost model. In Activity-Based Costing at CMYK Communications, Dodd and Lavelle explain the model-building process by using a hypothetical graphic communications company-CMYK Communications, Inc. The authors describe why the leaders of CMYK decided to implement activity-based costing, and they follow the CMYK implementation team as it makes the decisions and performs the tasks required to construct the company’s first ABC cost model. Activity-Based Costing at CMYK Communications also contains copies of the documents and spreadsheets created by the CMYK implementation team during the model-building process.
Activity-Based Costing at CMYK Communications retails for $39.00 and can be ordered online at www.pointbalance.com.
