CAM-I Working Groups and Projects

Cost Management and Target Costing -

Understanding the root causes of costs is the foundation to all areas cost management. Target costing has historically been used in product development organizations. The process and fundamental philosophy holds benefits for both product development and service industries as well. In the past the group has focused on a target costing model for service industries. The group is now looking to focus on shared service models, value analysis that focuses on customers and the relationship to cost, cost management, customer profitability, and predictive analytics. The fundamental work that CAM-I has done on target costing for manufacturing will not be lost and any new areas of focus will incorporate past work. The group will also build on the existing CAM-I cost management base of tools and techniques. Chair: Anthony Pember, Phone (703) 637-2777 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Intelligent Data Quality Management -

Data is an asset, but is difficult to manage because of the unique characteristics of data that defy traditional asset management techniques. The Intelligent Data Quality Management group is developing a framework and equation for assigning a monetary valuation to any record of data. Knowing how much a record of data is worth will allow organizations to make more intelligent asset management decisions, such as when to cleanse the data, when to convert or migrate the data to a new system, and when to archive or purge the data.

Integrated Risk and Value Management –

To be in business is to face a constant stream of potential risks that can disrupt daily activity and put the future of the organization in jeopardy. However, what if the organization were able to assess their potential risks for enterprise value? Robust organizations know how to take on measured risks that boost returns to stakeholders. If handled properly, it may even be possible to increase stakeholders’ perceived value after a crisis. The goal of the Integrated Risk and Value Management interest group at CAM-I is to explore this risk-value continuum, modifying existing thought and proactively to enable organizations to maximize value by optimizing risk.

Environmental Sustainability Interest Group –

An environmentally sustainable organization balances its current strategic and financial objectives with long-term natural resource preservation and usage to meet the needs of the present without compromising those of future generations. There is an opportunity to leverage cost and performance management tools and techniques to improve the performance and efficacy of environmental sustainability initiatives within an organization. The CAM-I ESIG seeks to leverage CAM-I’s existing Body of Knowledge in cost and performance management to develop more effective and efficient management tools and techniques to support environmental sustainability initiatives.
