Activity-based budgeting has been discussed for some time, but becomes far more practical with a Time Driven Activity-Based-Budgeting (TDABC) model. Using this approach, a company can now link its strategic plan and sales and production forecast to the specific demands for capacity required for implementation. This chapter introduces the powerful new extension of the TDABC model to perform what-if analysis and activity-based budgeting.

Learning objective: To illustrate how the TDABC model makes the process of activity-based budgeting simpler and more transparent.
