Summary These topics are the source of much confusion in the plastics industry and from the research carried out by the author, there does not appear to be any kind of authoritative published work that addresses these topics. This book addresses these topics head-on to explain in detail all the stages involved from budgeting to the final estimate. This book discusses and defines the different methods of budgeting, costing and estimating that are normally used within the injection moulding industry. In order to establish the costing system, the operating costs first have to be identified and quantified.
