Cost Reduction

Cost reduction may be defined as the achievement of real and permanent reduction in the unit cost of goods or services without impairing their suitability for the use intended or diminution in the quality of the product.

Cost reduction, should not be confused with cost saving and cost control. Cost saving could be a temporary affair and may be at the cost of quality.

Linked closely to your overall procurement strategy Cost Reduction implies the retention of essential characteristics and quality of the product or service and it must be confined to permanent and genuine savings in the costs of manufacture, administration, distribution and selling, brought about by elimination of waste.
