SEPARATE VALUATION CONCEPT is a recording and measurement rule that relates to the determination of the aggregate amount of any item. In order to determine the aggregate amount of an asset or a liability, each individual asset or liability that comprises the aggregate must be determined separately. This is important because material items may reflect different economic circumstances. There must be a review of each material item to comply with the appropriate accounting standards.
BLENDED COSTS is the cost of pre-set multiple items or processes that result in more than one end result or product. In a sense it is a form of cost averaging rather than stand-alone costing of one given product or identified process.
