Offering case studies from Japanese companies, this work explains how the Japanese style of cost accounting differs from the Western approach and demonstrates how Japanese cost accounting is integrated with the Japanese approach to manufacturing. It identifies and describes the distinctive features of Japanese management accounting, such as genchi genbutsu, cross-functional management, and the emphasis on autonomy.
