LABOR THROUGHPUT VARIANCE Definition

Bookmark and Share

LABOR THROUGHPUT VARIANCE reveals potential constraints on throughput caused by changes in the mix of products being produced. It is computed the way the traditional labor "efficiency" variance is computed but aggregated at a fairly high level (e.g., total plant or total department) and expressed as percent of actual clocked production hours vs. standard production hours.

INDUCEMENT is a reward for a specific behavior, designed to encourage that behavior; also called incentive. To provide the first months rent free would be a "lease inducement".

SHORT SALE is the selling of a security that the seller does not own, or any sale that is completed by the delivery of a security borrowed by the seller. Such sales are made in anticipation of a decline in the price of the security to enable the seller to cover the sale with a purchase at a later date, at a lower price, and thus at a profit. Short sellers assume the risk that they will be able to buy the stock at a more favorable price than the price at which they sold short.
