Then with the coreinformation and calculate approach of ABC, dividend the activity centre of IHE and affirmeach cost driver. After that, according to the planned steps of ABC, with the basic data ofSD University, it can be got the result of the average education cost of undergraduate,postgraduate and PHD student respectively.
