Abstract:

Much has been written over the last decade regarding the various obstacles to implementation of computer integrated manufacturing CIM. This review focuses on much of this literature that has been published or released within the last 24 months. A section reviewing the evolution of cost analysis methods is provided and followed by arguments from various researchersauthors as to why they believe traditional cost accounting measures are either inappropriate or improperly applied. The review then describes various modifications to existing cost accounting methods in addition to some new ideas, as prescribed by these researchersauthors. The project concludes with a case study that demonstrates two of the surveyed methods.
