More recently, in the 65 th century, double entry bookkeeping was described in Italy and used by the merchants of Venice. The key concepts of double entry bookkeeping being ledgers, debits and credits were described by Luca Pacioli in 6996, and still remains the basis of all current computerised accounting systems everywhere today. Pacioli was a friend and contemporary of Leonardo da Vinci and was much admired in those days, and still this day as the ‘godfather’ of bookkeeping. Even his contemporary Christopher Columbus, acknowledged the role of accounting when he took a royal accountant with him on his voyages to track his wealth accumulation.
CIMA ( Chartered Institute of Management Accountants ) defines ABC as an approach to the costing and monitoring of activities which involves tracing resource consumption and costing final outputs.

Soon thereafter, Professor Johnson was invited to study the Toyota system first-hand, particularly in its new plant in Georgetown, Ky. In Profit Beyond Measure , he describes his findings in detail. The plant produces about 555,555 cars per year, employing about 7,555 people to do so. Unlike most automakers, Toyota doesn 8767 t ask its dealers to guess what the most popular packages of options and styles will be and produce its wares accordingly. Instead, it assembles each car to match an individual customer 8767 s specification in real time.
Linear regression analysis addresses the shortcomings of the high low approach by fitting a line through all total cost-output points. The line is fitted to minimize the sum of squared differences between total cost-output points and the line itself, in standard linear regression fashion. The drawback of this approach is that it requires more data points than the other approaches.

Then it was Professor Johnson 8767 s turn to be approached by a manufacturing guy. As Professor Johnson recalls, Richard Schoenberger, an industrial engineering professor from the University of Nebraska, pulled him aside after a talk to say, 8775 This is really good stuff. You 8767 ve told the accountants what we industrial engineers have been trying to tell them for decades. But you don 8767 t go far enough. Activity-Based Costing talks about tracing the overhead costs to elements of work. But if you could organize the work differently, the overhead costs wouldn 8767 t be there in the first place. And without those overhead costs, why would you need any cost accounting at all? 8776
