Abstract

Existing capacity factors are able to drive cost stickiness behaviour and can explain asymmetric random variables. The effect of capacity expansion decisions on cost response with respect to changes in capacity factors is still unclear. Capacity factors affecting asymmetric cost behaviour has been investigated by providing alternative view(s) which takes precedence of cost behaviour, resources adjustment cost and capacity problems into consideration. Cost stickiness is affected by capacity factors and this eventually leads to complex capacity problems and estimates of adjustment costs. Motivated by the limitations of existing asymmetric cost behaviour and capacity factors, this paper seeks to integrate sticky costs with operations/production literature that provides a comprehensive review of which capacity expansion factors drives asymmetric cost behaviour for internal and external users of accounting information. This paper adopts the capacity expansion decision as new approach including strengths, weaknesses and opportunities that identifies proxies in connection with asymmetric cost behaviour.
