Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket. Binding and contents are almost like new. Very minor edge wear on clean, complete dust jacket.; Purple boards, bright silver lettering. Index. Numerous charts, graphs, figures in text. BUSINESS. In this completely practical guide filled with scores of actual examples, Dudick not only tackles typical product costing errors that lead to too-high or too-low prices and lost profits, he also shows you the key deficiencies of each commonly-used cost system-and reveals how to correct them. He explains how the widespread practice of lumping together an allowance for profit with selling, general and administrative costs, can easily be changed to make a firm's prices more competitive. He illustrates: a tested method for pricing components purchased from within the company that won't distort the break-even point or profit contribution of end products; eye-opening examples of how lax equipment maintenance frequently produces hard-to-detect extra costs and lower-than-expected profits; a major pitfall to watch out for where the list price of different options is added on to the basic price of a product to set its final price, etc., etc. You'll even find special formats for comparing estimated product costs and profits with actual figures to quickly ferret out hidden problems and prevent future problems from arising.; 9-1/2 x 7"; 309 pages.
