Standard costing is the foundation upon which much management accounting and budgetary practice rests, yet it is often misunderstood. In this book Colin Drury sets out the nature and scope of standard costing while clearly identifying its limitations. The book covers the calculation and interpretation of the full range of cost accounting variances, along with the formal analysis of the decision to investigate variances. The way in which standard costing information is recorded in the acoounts is also addresses in depth, an essential step in a full appreciation of the role of standard costing. Finally, the book assesses the usefulness of traditional standard costing techniques in a modern production environment.
