Cost Standards in Managerial Accounting

Do you think that standard costs are used only in making products like wheel bearings and hamburgers? Think again. Standards influence virtually every aspect of our lives. For example, the next time you call to the schedule an appointment with you doctor, ask the receptionist how many minutes the appointment is scheduled for.

As insurance companies and employers push for reduced medical costs, every facet of medicine has been standardized and analyzed. Doctors, nurses, and other medical staff are evaluated in very part of their operations to ensure maximum efficiency.
