Cost Drivers examples



In activity based costing method, to identify cost drivers is very necessary for unit cost and total cost. We know that activity-based costing is based on the concept that products consume activities and activities consume resources. From activity pools, we can find cost drivers. Suppose, a company wants to produce several products. At that time, what will company do for calculating per unit cost? Just adding of raw material and labor cost and absorbing production overheads on direct labour hours or machine hours is not good way. There will be many activities where we have to spent money. All these activities will become cost drivers. Examples of these cost drivers are given below:

1st  : No. of Purchase Orders

When we have to make any product, we issue the order. This is a simple activity. Its cost can be calculated one the basis of no. of purchase orders. So, number of purchase order is an example of cost driver.

2nd : No. of Set Up of Machine

Setting up the machine is an activity of production. This activity will also consume certain expenses. To know machine set up rate, we need a cost driver. No. of set up will be cost driver. With this, we can calculate set up of machine overhead  rate per set up of the machine for production.

3rd : No. of Machine Hours

No. of Machine hours is different cost driver which can be used for calculating machine hour rate relating to depreciation, repair and maintenance of machines.

4th : No. of Parts or Weight of Material Handled

Suppose, a company is making 4 products. These 4 products need 16 parts to assemble with each other. different expenses may be spent for this activity. We can calculate rate of this overhead on the basis of no. of parts. So, number of parts is a cost driver.

5th : No. of Test or No. of Inspections

When any product is made, it is test for checking its quality. Specific experts are appointed for this. They consume money in the form of salary, electricity, travel and other depreciation of their specific equipments. Now, we need to calculate rate of these type of overheads. It can be calculated on the basis of no. of test. So, number of test is cost driver. Suppose, we need 5 test per unit of  A product and suppose we have made 1000 units. It means, we need 5000 tests for these units. If the accounts of inspection and test departments show the total cost Rs. 1,00,000. We can calculate rate of per unit test.

= 1,00,000 / 5000 = Rs. 20 per unit test

6th : No. of Direct Labour Hours

No. of direct labour hours is that cost driver which can be used for calculating supervising cost per unit.


8th : No. of Batches of Material

For calculating, storage cost per batch, we have to make a cost driver that will be no. of batches of material.

9th : No. of Machine Operators

No. of machine operators is better cost driver for calculating electricity rate per machine operation.

Above are just examples of cost drivers which are used but you can also different cost drivers which may be appropriate for calculating overhead cost of products under ABC method.
