This methodology holds that the only direct cost is direct materials, with even direct labor costs being thrown out when making most cost-related management decisions.

Its main advantage is that it builds a direct correlation between the occurrence of an activity and related overhead costs, so that changes in the activity can be reliably expected to result in corresponding changes in the overhead costs. This results in valuable information for the management team, which uses it not only to gain some measure of control over its overhead costs, but also to gain an understanding of which products use more activities (and therefore overhead costs) than others. The downside of this methodology is that it requires a great deal of costing knowledge, time, and management commitment before a functioning ABC system becomes operational, and will henceforth require considerable upkeep to maintain.
