Due to the increase in trade, brought about by the industrial revolution, most businesses grow from the usual family arrangement to large groups and consortia. Resources were pulled together and handed over to other people to manage for the owners. Naturally, resources owners must expect of a profitable return from their investment. This urgent obligation forced management to seek ways of carrying out the activities so as to make profitable return to the resource owners. Investment grow in all dimension until the first and second world war in which after it, manufacturing industries increased in large number, grew in importance and also in meeting the improved living demands of the over-developing world. Material must have to be bought in enough quantity to avoid stack-out and at the same time check over-stocking. Labour that is a very volatile community must be allowed to operate in a conducive environment so as to reap the benefit as hiring labour.
Generally ecological consideration must be reviewed thereafter, site is acquired, structures erected,, machines and equipment installed. Manufacturing industries moves with the changing technology, meet it’s social responsibility operate under government stipulations, pay tax and when due, meet the expectations of shareholders.
High administrative cost, cost of changing technology, price competition, scare resources, falling economy, cost of government restriction, the need for maximization of shareholders wealth, poor capital bases etc must be accommodated and adjusted in such a way that total cost of manufacturing of product will not only be less than sales revenue but give a good profit margin.
This situation of operation under many uncompromising variables gave rise to the need for policy decision on such thing as :
1. Setting an industry
2. Expansion of an existing product
3. Introduction of a new product
4. A change in product design
5. Sell or process further
6. Close down
7. The replacement of Labour by machinery.
The cost accountant supplies statements of anticipation cost and profit relation to such problems aforementioned.
