Department allocation is a two-stage process, so the first-stage assignment of costs and the choice of cost drivers affects the allocation of costs to products.

Lanen et al., (2017): Review Q. 9-6, p. 353. 1. Identify activities that consume resources. 2. Identify the cost driver associated with each activity. 3.
