The purpose of the current research project is derived from the above motivation. A research gap seems to exist with regard to how management accounting is supported by different information systems. Therefore, it is the purpose of this research project to develop an understanding of the relationship between management accounting and information systems where information systems are not limited to ERP systems. There seems to be potential for companies to make better use of information systems when performing or changing management accounting activities. This research project will try to uncover how information systems can offer support for management accounting and how they can be exploited.
