THE EFFECTIVENES OF STANDARD COSTING AS A CONTROL TOOL FOR PERFORMANCE EVALUATION IN MANUFACTURING INDUSTRIES
(A CASE STUDY OF ANNAMCO EMENE ENUGU)
The direction towards on efficient production of good and services curled be as a result of an effective control of cost of production. The study of standard cresting as an aid is production cost control is very imperative especrahy in an economy with high rate of inflation and where prices of grads and service are constrarthy increase with no hope of reduction with the effect that th real value of mey in the consumer hand is lower than its face value.
This being the case the consumers only have little to spend there fore what ill be uppermost in their minds is to buy product: of cheaper rate when compared wish other products of the same quality.
So this research hoke into ho effective standard costing is in the control of production cost and performance appraisal with reference to the Anambra motor manufacturing company (ANAMMCO) Enugu.
It is the believe of the researcher that for the company to meet one of its goals of producing at reduced cost but consistent quality for customers satrafaction. It have to establish measure to effectively monitor and control production cost standard costing is one of the measures of achieving this.
In order to achieve this p upose backround of the stuy statement of peoblem objective of the study signitance study was shown in chapter one

5.1 Summary of handing
The direction towards an efficient production of goods and services could be as a result of an effective control of cost of production. The study of standard costing as an in production cost control is very imperative especially in Nigeria an economy with high rate of inflation so this research will brok into how effective standard costing is in the control of production cost and performance apprcrisal with reference to the Anambra motor manufacturing company (ANAMMCO) Enugu. This research will cover the control of production cost which include chrect material cost, chrect labour cost and fachy overlead cost through the use of standard costing system and also the analysis of variances which might arise as a result of comparing the actual cost incurred with the existing standard cost of the company. Ion order to source out data for this study the researcher intend to use primary and secondary data which is the most common source of data. The primary data will be soured through the use of questionnaires. Face to face interview and close observation as the case may be while the secondary data will be sources through text books journal and lecture note. The limited time given for the completion of this research will be amplify when considered that the researcher have to attend to other aspect of his study other than the research work alone since both research work and academic shidres will be run concurrently.
I must also curmment in the content transportation to Emene where the company of my case study is located the inaraidiliyt of the fund required for this press’s the seand cirstrant. This will be followed by the inability of the management to chrulge certain information which they will consider sensitive and the publication of which will be detrimental to their operation. More so, the attention of the member of top management whom may not be chanced will pours the third constant. It is the believer of the notice of the Nigeria would be entrepreneurs and already existing comparing the need to appreciate the use of standard costing in controlling cost and bars for performance evaluation..
Civilization sincerely is a welcome phenomenon. The business world is not left out in its resultant effect. Thus, the degree of complexity and sophistication of situations obtainable in the present days business has called for not just experience but effective and formidable managers. The practicality commitment and inefficiency of every manager could be measured based on his ability to plan organize, direct, cirutrol, co-ordinate meteorite and evaluate his business activities these function centers on the resultant checksum makings the process of which are route which have no close substitute as far as the profit making and progress of any business is concerned.
Hence it is early detached that the profit making to cover the cost and the survival o every industry has informatively become an increasingly difficult task therefore mangers are faced with entire managerial decision making crises. Sequel to that the ability of every management to have the managerial decision making process . under control become pertinent as such industry strive to push and present its product is a position it could be preferred to the products of other firms in the same line of business. This gare rise to management accounting which improved from the old quantitative approach to accounting to encompass the quantitative approach to accounting practices
