Burbage, MBA, CPA, CMA, CFM © CHAPTER LEARNING OBJECTIVES: MAJOR: - Calculate all variances. - Explain what each variances means in non-technical language. - Internal Business Process Performance terminology and concepts (PVA, Value added, Non- value added, DCT, Throughput & MCE) MINOR: - Formulas for each variance. - Journal entries to record variances – Appendix 10A.

(One versus total.) Often we will use the term standard to mean many, but keep in mind the true definition. IDEAL STANDARDS are not reachable and most managers don't like to use them because of this.
