Explain Cost Allocation

Cost Allocation: This is a technique of assigning costs to activities, outputs, or other cost objects. The allocation base employed to assign a cost to objects is not essentially the cause of the cost. For illustration, assigning the cost of power to machine actions by machine hours is an allocation since machine hours are an indirect measure of the power utilization.
