This panel focuses on the issues of using the pricing mechanism to both control and exploit the computer resource. The pricing mechanism for computer services and charge-out systems are employed primarily for control purposes. A more powerful role exists in the area of exploiting the computer resource and engendering user management acceptance and accountability. The panel will build upon ideas in the following paper in both the management and design issues of charge-out systems.
