Target Costing and Industrial Engineering

Target Costing and Target Cost Management

Industrial engineering is a management activity. It is a staff activity in the management functions or activities. But its subject foundation is engineering and its main application is engineering activities, departments and engineering organizations. It focuses on cost reduction and thereby increase of sales due to lower prices and increased profits to the organization and through it increased incomes to employees of an organization apart benefit to other stakeholders of the organization. Also the managerial activities of planning, organizing, staffing, directing and controlling are relevant in industrial engineering practice. Industrial engineers are asked to do efficiency studies managerial processes also. So they have to know the output and inputs of managerial processes and how managerial processes are carried out.

Industrial engineering programs have principles and practices of management as a course in the curriculum as industrial engineers are productivity managers of the organizations.
