The basis of one load rate is used at the level of the company as a whole, namely the productive unit, ie the total indirect industrial costs of the centers Marketing and management services) after direct exclusion whether variable or fixed as easy to track. The most important findings of the study are that the method of ABC is more accurate in measuring and determining the cost of production and the cost of a meter than the traditional method. This is reflected in the control, planning and decision making. This method provides more accurate and objective data for management.
