As you face pricing and productivity decisions, knowing your costs is essential. Standard Costing facilitates the timely and accurate support of standard cost accounting procedures. Standard Cost keeps up-to-date projected costs for all products and parts provided by a company.

The Standard Cost function takes the wealth of information contained within the other Product Data Management functions, and calculates current and standard costs by item number.
