What is a Standard Cost and How is it Calculated?

Standard Cost is the estimated cost of producing a product or providing a service, assuming a certain level of efficiency in the production process. It is calculated by estimating the direct material cost, direct labor cost, and manufacturing overhead for each unit of product or service. The standard cost serves as a benchmark for actual production costs and is used in cost accounting to calculate variances between actual and standard costs.
