7. The primary objective of activity-based management is:

  1. To develop more accurate product costs.
  2. To reduce and eliminate non-value added activities.
  3. To increase product quality.
  4. To identify instances of internal failure.

 

 

8. Target costing is directed toward:

  1. Increasing the activity costs associated with existing products.
  2. Identifying the amount by which the costs of existing products must be reduced to achieve a target profit margin.
  3. The creation and design of products that will provide adequate profits.
  4. The improvement of existing production processes by eliminating non-value adding activities.

 

 

 

9. The identification of a target price for a newly designed product or service is focused on:
