One of the major roles that manufacturing accountants play is to identify cost savings activities and present those to the COO, VP of Manufacturing or the plant manager.
Often times these ideas are met with skepticism "What does the bean counter know about manufacturing?"
Yet the people most familiar with the costs and the cost structures are the manufacturing accountants.
Learning Objectives:

  • The discussion will focus on the skills to present and convince the manufacturing personnel that the cost savings ideas deserve consideration such that the manufacturing accountant can become a true "partner" with the manufacturing departments.
