The problem of reducing costs of operation is of prime importance in any industry. In this era of mass production and intensive competition especially, every cent of cost on the unit of finished product must be justified. Every cent that is run down and pushed off the cost of the finished product is a victory. It means that much advantage over other companies producing the same commodity that have not been fortunate enough to ferret out the unnecessary penny, and that much more stability for the more efficient organization.
