STANDARD COST PRICING is a development of the cost-plus approach to setting prices is to use cost 'standards' based on management accounting systems. Variable costs of production (materials, labor, bought-in components, etc.) are added up and divided by the number of units intended to be produced to give a variable cost per unit. Similarly running costs of the organization (rent, rates, energy, maintenance, together with management and administrative costs) are totaled and divided by the number of units to be sold to provide the fixed cost per unit. Finally the profit required is added in on a per unit basis. Adding together the variable cost, fixed cost and profit per unit gives the selling price.
CUT SCORE is a point on a score scale in which scores at or above the point are in a different category or classification than scores below the point (e.g. pass versus fail).
BARBELL is a bond management strategy where maturities are clustered at extremes of the yield curve. For example, the price performance of one-year and 30-year bonds, in combination, may exceed that of a l0-year, even though the average maturity of the two strategies may be equal.
