50 shades of grey. Lifting the shades on traditional costing or 50 reasons why airlines should opt for driver-based operations costing (DBOC) in the future.

Today’s airline cost management is based on cost aggregation and distribution keys. This translates into management by average or assumptions. The only real way to learn how cost disparities compound is to build a bottom-up view of unit costs and volumes. With traditional cost-cutting programs reaching their limits McKinsey assumes that a ‘driver analysis offers many traditional carriers cost-cutting opportunities of 10 to 20 percent a seat, even without a substantial shift in business models.’ The presentation outlines how activity based costing (ABC) and driver-based costing evolved, how DBOC is to be applied complimented by the reasoning why it will be tomorrow’s way of managing cost. The magnitude of disruption for maintenance / schedule planners, operations control, hub, network managers, as well as financial controllers will be discussed. The systems required for DBOC exist it just needs innovators to lift the grey shades.
