During week five we will be focused on activity based costing and management. For your discussion board post this week I would like you to read about activity based costing in chapter five of our textbook. Then I would like you in your post to summarize what is meant by this concept. Then I would like you to go to page 229-230 in your textbook. Read case 5-70 and answer the three questions. 1. Is the controller, Erin Jackson, acting ethically? 2. Is the production manager, Alan Tyler, acting ethically? 3. What are Jackson’s ethical obligations? To the president? To her friend?
Attached the case: 5-70
