Abstract:

A data processing chargeback system is one of the most important tools for management control of computer resources. Users are coordinated and controlled through the impact of life cycle budgets and transfer prices on demand for computer products and services. Computer resource decisions concerning configuration and magnitude are also impacted by life cycle prices. This concept is used to explain some current chargeback accounting systems and to provide the foundation for development of preferred chargeback objectives and measurement criteria or standards. Evaluation of data processing management performance requires setting user understandable criteria. To that end, emphasis must be shifted form a purely inward looking perspective to a user oriented perspective. Using the initial concept as a foundation, the author leads the reader through a step-by-step process that introduces, develops, and expands the above points and culminates in a suitable environment for this user oriented perspective.
