CAM-I Deliverables 2017 - 2018

Cost Management and Target Costing Group

This group is working on or investigating the following areas –

  • Finalizing publication of the results of a study regarding the implementation of shared services
  • Linking value analysis to target costing applications.
  • Identifying how to make design decisions without mature cost models.
  • Bill of Materials (BOM) change control - Pre design changes affect estimated costs ahead of the required change board discussion, and catching those changes early are a key to a successful target costing approach as iterative changes can accumulate well ahead of estimates.
  • Examining predictive analytics models and build templates for certain applications.
  • Target costing for service model.

Performance Management Interest Group

The group is focused on these Phase III initiatives:

Phase III Key Deliverables:

  • PMF Awareness Training for members and guests at quarterly meetings
  • PMF Implementation Workshop facilitated in-house for member companies
  • PMF Instructor Certification Process and Program (“Train-The-Trainer”)
  • On-line Readiness Assessment tools and analytics
  • Guidance on integrating PMF concepts with other IGs’ methodologies

Current research and development includes:

  • Creating an updated Executive Overview with a more graphical explanation of the methodology
  • Providing high level guidance on improving organizational readiness
  • Packaging PMF instructor materials into a practical Implementation Guidebook
  • Documenting business success stories in the use of the Framework
  • Developing an approach to providing more detailed guidance on specific improvement techniques and accessing associated reference materials

Integrated Risk and Value Management Special Interest Group

The Integrated Risk and Value Management interest group is currently working on the development of the risk-value continuum, value-analysis matrix, and risk-analysis tool. These tools will be combined into a user-guide which identifies where an organization is currently in terms of risk taking and will help lead the organization to their optimal point to maximize organizational value. This will help lead an organization through a well-rounded risk-value discussion at any level of the organization.

Intelligent Data Quality Management Group

The Intelligent Data Quality Group seeks to develop a framework or equation that can put a dollar value on any record of data in any data system.
Plans are in progress to align and tie the output of this group to other CAM-I Initiaves.

Environmental Sustainability Interest Group

To continue driving its mission, ESIG is currently developing a pilot activity-based greenhouse gas (GHG) management model at Weber State University to validate the 2012 whitepaper: Measuring and Managing Environmental Sustainability: Using Activity-Based Costing/Management (ABC/M). The group intends to demonstrate that the activity-based information generated by the model will help identify the relative cost- and environmental-intensity of activities at Weber St., and help university managers make more informed decisions to focus on activities, products and services which are high-value and low-environmental intensity.
