Accounting Chapter 11 Notes Decentralized organization • decision-making authority is spread throughout the organization rather than being confined to a few top executives Responsibility center • used for any part of an organization whose manager has control over and is accountable for cost, profit, or investments o Cost center – has control over costs, but not over revenue or the use of investment funds o Profit center – has control over both costs and revenue, but not over the use of investment funds o Investment center – has control over cost, revenue, and investments in operating assets Return on Investment (ROI) • Defined as net operating income divided by average operating assets: ROI = Net Operating Income Average operating assets • Net operating income – income before interest and taxes and is sometimes referred to as EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) • Operating assets – includes cash, accounts receivable, inventory, plant and equipment, and all other assets held for operating purposes ROI can be expressed in terms of margin and turnover: Ex: ROI = Margin × Turnover Margin = Net operating income Sales Turnover = Sales Average operating assets Residual Income • Net operating income that an investment center earns above the minimum required return on its operating assets Residual Income = Net operating income – (average operating assets × minimum required rate of return) Economic Value Added (EVA) • An adaptation of residual income that has been adopted by many companies • Under EVA, companies modify their accounting principles in various ways • When residual income or EVA is used to measure performance, the objective is to maximize the total amount of residual income or EVA, not to maximize ROI Delivery Cycle Time • The amount of time when a customer order is received to when the completed order is shipped Delivery cycle time = Wait time + Throughput time Throughput time • The amount of time required to turn raw materials into completed products Process time • The amount of time work is actually done on the product Inspection time • The amount of time spent ensuring that the product is not defective Queue time • The amount of time a product spends waiting to be worked on, to be moved, to be inspected, or to be shipped Throughput (manufacturing cycle) time = Process time + inspection time + move time + queue time Manufacturing Cycle Efficiency (MCE) • Process (value-added) time as a percentage of throughput time MCE = Value-added time (Process time) Throughput (manufacturing cycle) time Balanced Scorecard • Consists of an integrated set of performance measures that are derived from and support a company’s strategy • Strategy – essentially a theory about how to achieve the organization’s goals • Characteristics of a balanced scorecard o Financial o Internal business processes o Learning o Growth • If the balanced scorecard is correctly constructed, the performance measures should be linked together on a cause-and-effect basis • Incentive compensation for employees, such as bonuses, can and probably should, be tied to balanced scorecard performance measures
