Conventional budgeting systems normally output a total cost
saving, but the disadvantage is that it is very labour intensive to then
identify which areas or components most significantly affect the total costs.
The unique innovation of this system is that it illustrates the proportional
values of all the components in figures, pie charts and bar graphs. The use of
graphical representation accelerates the comparison and evaluation processes.
All the output information from the Main Workbook and the
Components Workbook is summarised in the totals spreadsheet,
The totals information is linked and assembled to produce six
simple statistical graphs in Statistics Workbook which facilitates a
quick understanding of the information.
This process facilitates a quick evaluation of the situation and,
what is more important, it will allow us to apply corrective measures to the
The information is provided through six spreadsheets-charts with
the entire information in local currency (Sucres, Ecuadorian Currency in this
