The organizational chart includes total uses budget, general fund contribution (GFC), and fulltime equivalent (FTE) employees at the department level, and then cascades down through the cost center
structure (division, subdivision, and program).
Managerial accounting influences the decisions of management regarding strategies from the beginning, cost type accounting and primary cost centers
that determine a low price as possible, secondary cost centers
influence the differentiation using IT and HR, to the end by profitability management that shows how successful a management strategy is.
Differences in cost center
practices between Germany and the United States can be divided into four categories: differences in the definition of a cost center
, differences in output and activity measures used in the cost centers
, differences in the way in which costs are classified in cost centers
, and differences in the responsibilities assigned to the heads of cost centers
In addition, under a common approach to cost accounting in Germany known as Grenzplankostenrechnung (GPK), the manager of a cost center
typically has a much narrower responsibility than the manager of a U.
accounting with reference to a high number of cost centers
is a distinguishing characteristic of German cost accounting, so expectations about the future development of this method are of interest.

The total costs associated with a particular cost center
include administrative wages including fringes, mechanics' wages including fringes, and operating costs (utilities, supplies, tools, data processing, purchasing fees, attorney fees) for a total cost.
Of course, generating accurate contribution margin statements is contingent upon accurate segmentation of variable and fixed costs at the cost center
These include using variable costing, separating variable and fixed costs for each cost center
, transferring costs from support cost centers
to primary cost centers
while maintaining the distinction between fixed and variable costs, estimating consumption for each resource cost center
, and using planned or standard costs for most costing purposes.
With this information the facility is prepared to define the cost centers
and develop the total cost of providing each service.
If the cost center
actually realizes a cost savings of $115,000, the financial performance index earned is 4, which now can be combined with the above nonfinancial performance index of 4.
