depreciation method

Explanation:
generally, the computation of depreciation is referred to as the depreciation method. Aside from activity methods, examples of time-based methods include the straight-line method, the sum-of-the-year's-digits method, and the declining balance method

Therefore:
... the change in depreciation method according to/in conformity with IAS (International Accounting Standards) has a positive effect on manufacturing costs in the amount of 425,000 euros.

(because depreciation on manufacturing assets is included as a cost of the inventory produced and is recorded as an increase (debit) to the Goods in Process Inventory account, a positive effect on production costs must mean depreciation is allocated over a longer term, thus reducing the costs allocated for depreciation in the respective accounting period)

HTH!
