Bus/Financial - Finance (general)
German term or phrase: Nachkalkulation; Kaufteile
The context is a list of instructions and guidelines pertinent to a company's management roundtables, where the management system and quality assurance system are discussed:
"Neben . . . wird auch eine Bewertung bezüglich Produkt- und Prozeßkosten anhand der laufenden Nachkalkulation."
Romain lists "actual cost accounting" as a possibility, but I'm not sure.

Also within the same set of doments, are "Kaufteile" parts that need to be purchased?

current cost accounting


Explanation:
Romain lists "actual cost accounting"
Romain is usually quite good, but I suspect that the "actual" here is the
faux ami of "aktuell" and that "current cost accounting" is meant.

"Kaufteile" parts that need to be purchased? Yes, need to be purchased, and are regularly purchased to be used in production.

No, Romain's "actual" actually means "actual" not "current"


Explanation:
"actual" in the sense of historic, real, factual rather than estimated, etc. Hamblock/Wessels also gives the phrase "statistical cost accounting" if you like that better. Antje's "final costing" also makes it quite clear what is meant. Arthur Andersen uses "actual cost determination" for "Nachkalkulation" and also uses "purchased parts" for "Kaufteile".

Besides...a product cost and processing estimate based on current revaluation is also...?


Explanation:
'Cost accounting' in the USA is really a translation of (among other things)the German word 'Abteilungskostenrechnung,' which has nothing to do with what this short text says to me. I can't be sure because I need to see the verb that goes with 'wird' or a noun with 'zur(m)'
indicating what 'die Nachkalkulation' is becoming. 'Nach-' usually means 're-' in English, if the noun it is used with is derived from a verb.
