The cost control cycle

Cost control is a process made up of sequential steps. Starting with setting a budget and ending with final accounting.

Forecasting well in advance gives plenty of time to set in place cost control actions.

Cost control is more than making unilateral bottom line decisions.

Bottom line also refers to any actions that may increase/decrease net earnings or a company’s overall profit

Good cost control is about controlling the parts that make up the whole.
