  31. 31. Sunk cost A cost that has already been incurred and which cannot be recovered- Inventory, R & D, Asset discarded
  32. 32. Capacity costs Capacity costs tend to be fixed in relation to changes of activity within short term periods Over long term periods of several years, significant changes in demand will cause capacity costs to change
  33. 33. Period cost (Same as fixed costs)
  34. 34. Product costs Product costs refer to the costs incurred to create a product
