Dawn Treader Industries: Long-Term Construction Contracts
Length: 1-3 Hours
Level: Intermediate (majors)
Author: Cottell, Philip
Having worked through the seven stages of the Dawn Treader Industries unfolding problem, students will be able to understand and perform the technical aspects of accounting for long-term construction contracts. The problem departs from traditional textbook approaches to accounting in favor of the techniques currently used in the industry based on research by the author. Students will be required to make choices when they encounter a cancelled contract in Phase 6 of the problem. Because the problem unfolds in stages, accounting instructors may eliminate aspects that they do not wish to cover.
