Title: Throughput Accounting: A Maverick approach to making decisions

             Throughput Accounting was developed by Dr. Eli Goldratt, the father of the Theory of Constraints

             Throughput Accounting is a more robust solution to support decision making than conventional cost accounting systems

             Throughput Accounting is simple on the surface but provides profound and often times counter intuitive answers when compared to traditional cost accounting and also ABC.

             Almost all cost accountants will admit there are significant flaws in cost accounting, but they do not know what the solution to those problems should look like. TA is that answer.
