Question: You re killing me exclaimed Myles Werntz product manager for Premium

"You're killing me!" exclaimed Myles Werntz, product manager for Premium products. "All along I've been told that the Premium line costs the company $125; we charge $225 and make a $100 profit. Now you're saying that costs have increased to $200. That's crazy."

As the company controller you were part of the team that implemented an activity-based costing (ABC) system. Explain to Myles what typically happens to the cost of premium products under ABC. Consider what kinds of cost were included in the $125 amount and what kinds of cost are likely to be included in the $200 amount.
