b) A compromise method or elimination method may be utilized where with the costs of each service cost centers are reapportioned in turn. The costs of the first service center will be re-apportioned to each user centers involving other service centers. However the first service center is then removed from any further reapportionment. The cost of the second service center involving any costs already reapportioned from the first service center are after that reapportioned to all user centers other than the first service center.
