Over 20% new content, updated pages throughout but still the same accessible information, clear layout and valuable content.

A fully revised edition covering all aspects of plastics processing and relating these to cost management and survival in the future.

The book is NOT a text on 'cost cutting', it is a text on how intelligent cost management in plastics processing can reduce costs, improve competitiveness and make life easier for plastics processors.

The book looks at the process of making plastics and how the cost of the product is built up. Ranging from basic management cost accounting through to the treatment of overheads (and simple ways to reduce them) the book includes 'Key Tips' for cost management for each activity area.

Controversial in many areas, the book provides a tool kit for the future and a template for good cost management in the industry. In an age where companies are fighting for business the book provides a range of techniques for cost management.

Written in a clear and simple style, each topic is covered in a single A3 spread. This is not a book to be read from cover to cover but a tool to be referred to and used as a change management reference for all areas of plastics processing.

'Technology is not important. It is what we do with it that counts.'

Format: A4, perfect bound, soft backed, c 288 pages.
