MCPD: from Target and Actual Cost to Ideal Cost

By Dr. Alin Posteucă

Recently, I have received several requests to briefly explain how costs are consistently improved using Manufacturing Cost Policy Deployment (MCPD). For this, I recently wrote a paper for the Publishing House of the Romanian Academy; The Romanian Journal of Technical Sciences – Applied Mechanics Series.

But what is MCPD in short? MCPD is the way to a unique, non-traditional structured approach, to identify feasible operational improvements and to achieve profitability and productivity targets regardless of whether sales increase or decrease.

So, I invite you to read my attached article and tell me if you need any details. I will be happy to answer any questions related to the successful planning and implementation of the MCPD to visibly improve your costs.

My paper can be seen here or here.
