Project Information:
You are a manager at PopUp Company, who manufactures toaster ovens.  Your company produces two types of toaster ovens: basic and deluxe.  PopUp Company currently uses a traditional unit-based costing system; however, you feel strongly the company should switch to an activity-based costing system.  You believe this change would provide you more accurate costing information, which would allow for better strategic decision making.  You need to prepare a number of documents in order to convince the CFO to change the current cost management system used by your company.
