Activity-Based Costing vs. Traditional Cost Accounting
The different approaches and outcomes from ABC and traditional costing are most accessible for illustration in the context of a product manufacturing example. However, the principles appearing here extend readily to a wide range of other business settings.
Example: Traditional Cost Accounting vs. ABC

For example, consider a firm that manufactures automobile parts through a sequence of machine operations on a metal stock. In such settings, traditional cost accounting views "product production costs" as either direct costs or indirect costs (or overhead).
