CHAPTER ONE

1.0                      INTRODUCTION TO CHAPTER ONE
COST: cost is defined by Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), as the amount of expenditure incurred on, or attributable to a specified thing or activity.
It can also be referred to as the expenses incurred, in the course of a business, so as to bring products and services to its present state or site. As the expenditure incurred, in an organization is monitored or controlled, the end-effect is that the income of the organization will be maximized (i.e growing positively) and when the reverse is the case, the company might be suffering from substantial loss incurred in its operations.
          However, the main goal for setting up a business or manufacturing company is to be able to make profit or better still for the benefit obtainable from an operation to justify the cost incurred.
          Although, manufacturers are now willing to accept as a principle, that costing is of value, there is still a considerable lack of appreciation by many of them as to where its value lies.
          In order to achieve this main goal, company may differ from one to another, due to the fact that organization operate from different scope and principles. The general method is the application of cost control on production costing so as to minimize cost and maximize profit in the course of production.
          Cost control with particular attention to manufacturing organization cannot be over emphasized for such organization to achieve its primary aim and objective.
          Cost control is a broad set of cost accounting methods and management techniques with the common goal of improving business cost efficiency by reducing cost, or at least restricting their rate of growth.
          Some cost control advocate believe that strategic cost-cutting must be planned carefully, as not all cost reduction technique yield the same benefit.
          Cost control therefore becomes an inheritable and indispensable tool in an organization for a positive result to be realized Needless to mention that there are certain cost that can not be monitored or controlled to a certain degree. Examples are light and heat, rent and interest on loan etc.
