Cost Structure: the proportion of variable costs and fixed costs in an organization.
Variable cost: these costs vary in total directly and proportionately with activity level, but are constant per unit.
Activity level or activity base: measure of what causes or drives variable cost.
Can be a measure of either inputs or outputs.
For many purposes we’ll use output units as the activity base – but not always as time goes on!
EXAMPLES: See Exhibit 3-2.
