Multi-dimensional cost & profitability

Better insights into true costs and profitability

Multi-dimensional Costing (MDC) is one of today’s most advanced and precise costing methods. This is how it works: by precisely allocating costs to dimensions like ‘Customer’, ‘Country’, ‘Sales channel’, ‘Client group’ and ‘Product’ and then allocating the costs of each dimension to the sales transactions, you end up with a significantly more precise cost allocation and better insights into the true costs and profitability of the combinations of all your dimensions.

For example, everybody can imagine that product X, produced and sold locally is cheaper than the same product sold 10.000 miles away from the factory. But even on your local market a similar trend can be seen: the same product X, sold to a low-volume high-demand client A can be more expensive than when you sell it to reliable, returning client B. This is because your biggest client B always orders in time, never changes the order and has no complaints, meaning that his ‘handling’ costs are lower than the small and difficult clients.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is encouraging agencies to adopt Technology Business Management (TBM) strategies by 2022. While some agencies are just beginning to take tentative steps to initiate TBM projects, the Small Business Administration (SBA) is a shining example of one farther along in its implementation and sustainment journey.
