A cost driver is typically a variable like the amount of activity used, that impacts the costs of the process over time. This cost driver creates a cause and effect relationship between the process and the costs associated with it because of the driver. In cost accounting we typically focus on the different cost drivers of key activities to ensure that proper cost management is in place to limit their impact on the financial returns of the business.
Looking at this concept, select two examples of cost drivers and explain the processes they are associated with, their cost impact, and how you would monitor and manage their impacts on the financial performance of the business.
