DEPLETION is the process of cost allocation that assigns the original cost of a natural resource to the periods benefited. For example: a mining company purchases mineral rights to a deposit for $5 million for a period of ten years. The cost of the natural resource, $5 million, will be depleted over the ten years of the benefit; i.e., it is the physical exhaustion of a natural resource (e.g., timber, oil and coal).
KAIZEN BUDGETING is a budgeting approach that projects costs on the basis of future improvements, rather than current practices and methods. The key point is that the budget cannot be achieved unless improvements are made.
