HISTORY OF THE ORGANISATION AND OBJECTIVE

CADBURY INDIA Cadbury began its operations in 1948 by importing chocolates and then re-packing them before distribution in the Indian market. After 59 years of existence, it today has five compay-owned manufacturing facilities at Thane, Induri (Pune) and Malanpur (Gwalior) , Bangalore and Baddi (Himachal Pradesh) and 4 sales offices (New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkota and Chennai). The corporate office is in Mumbai. Our core purpose “Working together to create brands people love” captures the spirit of what we are ttrying to achieve as a business. We collaborate and work as teams to convert products into brands. Simply put, we spread happiness! Currently Cadbury India operates in three sectors viz. Chocolate Confectionery, milk food Drinks and in the Candy category. In the Chocolate Confectionery business, Cadbury has maintained its undisputed leadership over the years. Some of the key brands are Cadbury Dairy Milk, 5 Star, Perk, Eclairs and Celebrations. Cadbury enjoys a value market share of over 70% the highest Cadbury brand share in the world! Our flagship brand Cadbury Dairy Milk is considered the “gold standard” for chocolates in India. The pure taste of CDM defines the chocolate taste for the Indian consumer. In the Milk food drinks segment our main product is Bournvita – the leading Malted Food Drink (MFD) in the country. Similarly in the medicated candy category Halls is the undisputed leader. We recently entered the gums category with the launch of our worldwide dominant bubble gum brand Bubbaloo. Bubbaloo is sold in 25 countries worldwide. The Cadbury India Brand Strategy has received consistent support through simple but imaginative extensions to product

categories and distribution. A good example of this is the development of Bytes. Crispy wafers filled with coca cream in the form of a bagged snack, Bytes is positioned as “The new concept of sweet snacking”. It delivers the taste of chocolate in the form of a light snack, and thus heralds the entry of Cadbury India into the growing bagged Snack Market, which has been dominated until now by Salted Bagged Snack Brands. Bytes was first launched in South India in 2003. MALANPUR FACTORY In 1989 the company stated manufacturing operations from its third and newest factory at Malanpur near Gwalior in M.P.

HISTORY OF ORGANISATION
Fifty years ago, the real taste of chocolate as we know it today, landed on Indian shores. An event that carried forward the entrepreneurship and vision born as far back as 1824, when John Cadbury set up shop in Birmingham (UK) to sell among other things – his own cocoa concoction. From these modest beginnings emerged Cadbury Schweppes – that is today the leading manufacturer of confectionery and beverages in the United Kingdom. A company that has its presence in over 200 countries worldwide and has made the name ‘Cadbury’ synonymous with cocoa products in countries across the planet. This is the brand that came to India in 1947 to a nation that was in its infancy, a market that was ready for the world and a people that were open to new ideas, new products. Within a year of being set up as a trading concern, Cadbury fry India was incorporated as a Private Limited company, set up for processing imported chocolates and Bourn vita. The same year saw the launch of Cadbury’s Milk chocolate for millions of Indians. Through 50 years of investment in capital and marketing, the scale and scope of our operations has expaned to cover a range of brands in the chocolate, sugar confectionery and malted food drinks segments. We have a majority share in the Indian chocolate market and a significant presence in sugar confectionery and food drinks.

Today Cadbury India Ltd, a subsidiary of Cadbury Schweppes employs over 200 people across the country. And operates in one of the fastest growing chocolate markets for Cadbury Schweppes group across the globe.

FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE
Finance holds the key to all human activity . Finance department of malanpur factory is also working in the same direction and with the same objective but it has some limitation because morst of the

importance finance related matter are directly dealt and finalized by the central finance department in the Mumbai head office. Factory finance department always endeavors of maximizing the profit of high company through two possible ways : 1. Reduction in cost 2. Increase in Sales FINANCIAL FUNCTIONS 1. Preparing variance report a) Material user variance report b) Packaging material user variance report 2. Production report 3. Excise related matter 4. Export related matter 5. Payment to small engineering items and other

goods.

MATERIAL COST CONTRL
MATERIAL COST CONTROL
Material cost control is the management of cost of material it consists of the following . 1. Capital costs 2. Storage costs 3. Risk of price decline 4. Risk of obsolescence

MATERIAL
Material is very important factor for production . it includes physical commodities used to manufacture the final end product. commodities in the process It is the starting point from which the first operation start. Material refer to all of of manufactures . Proper control of material is necessary from the time order of purchase material are palced with supplies . until the have been consumed.

COST
It is the amount of resources given up in exchange for some goods or services. The cost is that which is given or a sacrifice to obtain something cost is also different from value as cost is measured in terms of money whereas values is measured in terms of usefulness or utility of an article. We can define as : the amount of expenditure ( actual or notional ) incurred on or attributable to a given thing or to ascertain the cost of a given thing.

Methods of controlling the size of material: There arc two method of controlling as follows: 1) Standardization. 2) Simplification. Standardization and simplification are the tools of material control to optimize on the number of items and reduce the size of material, carried in the stores. Standard institutions: Standardization and simplification are the continuous process for controlling the size of materials ,so there are many institution regarding the help of this, these arc as follows . Indian Standard Institute. . International Organization for Standardization. . Other Specialilised Institutions. Types of stores department: I) centralized stores 2) Decentralized stores 3) Central stores with sub- stores. 1) Centralized stores :In case of such a store, material are received by and issued from one stores department materials kept at one central store. 2) Decentralized stores: Under this type of stores, independent stores are situated in various departments. Such types or stores setup to meet the requirements of materials of each production department are not very popular because of the heavy expenditure involved. 3) Central stores with sub-stores:

Such stores should be situated near production departments. For each item of material, a quantity is determined and this should be kept in stock in sub-store at the beginning of any period .In the end of a period the storekeeper of each sub-store will requisition from the central stores. Fixation of KO.Q. and various level: a)E.O.Q.: The decision about how much order has great significance in inventory management .the quantity should be order neither small nor big because cost of buying and carrying material are very high. Economic order quantity is the size of the lot to be purchased which is economically ) viable .this is the quantity of material which can be purchased at minimum costs .economic order quantity is the point at which inventory carrying cost is equal to order costs E.O.Q. is made. 01' two parts. Ordering cost. Carrying cost. EOQ = 2All I Where: A Annual. B Cost of placing an order/. ordering cost or buying cost PCI' unit 1 Inventory carrying cost of one unit C*S(cost per unit*storage cost) a) Minimum Level or safety stock level: It represent the minimum qty. of an item ,which must be keep in store at all time .the main (II' determination of minimum level is that ,due to this, production should not be stoped.Calcu1all' formula of min. stock level is as follows

Minimum . b) Maximum Level:

level

=

Re-ordering

level-(Normal

consumption*Normal Re-order – period

It represents the maximum quantity of an item of material which can be held in stock at any time .stock should not exceed this quantity .the quantity is fixed so that there may bb no overstocking .the formula of maximum stock level given by WHELDON is as follows Maximum stock level= Reordering level + Re-ordering Quantity(Minimum Consumption*Minimum Reordering period) '-c) Average stock level : The average stock level is calculated by the following formula: Average stock level = Minimum stock level + ½ of re-order quantity d) Reordering level :The order is sent before the materials reach minimum stock level. Re-order level = Safety stock + (Average usage *Average re=-order period ) OR Maximum consumption * Maximum Re-order period OR Maximum usage * Maximum lead time

SAMPLE & TOOLS
1. First in first out ( FIFO)method : Under this method material is first issued from the earliest consignment on hand and priced at the cost at which that consignment was placed in the stores .in other words, materials received first arc issued first. the units in the opening stock of materials are treated as if they are issued (first, the units from the first purchase issued next and so on until the units left in the closing stock of materials arc valued at the latest cost of purchases. ['his method is most suitable in times of falling price of materials to jobs or works orders will he high, while the cost of replacement of materials will be low .but in case of rising prices this method is not suitable because the issue price of materials to production will be low ,while the cost of replacement of materials will be high. Advantages of FIFO Method : . Main advantage of FIFO method is that it is simple to understand and easy to operate. . It is logical method because it takes into consideration the normal procedure. Of utilizing first those materials which arc received first .Materials are issued in order of purchases, <;0 materials received first are utilized first. . Under this method, materials are issued at the purchase price ;so the cost of jobs or work order is correctly ascertained so far as cost of materials is concerned. Thus, the method recovers the cost price of the materials. . This method is useful when prices are falling.

. Closing stock of materials will be valued at the market price as the closing stock under this method would consist of recent purchase of materials. . This method is also useful when transactions arc not too many and price of materials are fairly steady. Disadvantages of FIFO method: . ['his method is increase the possibility of clerical errors, if consignment are received frequently at fluctuating prices as every time an issue of materials is made ,the store ledger clerk will have to go through his record to ascertain the price to be charged. . For pricing one requisition more than one price has often to be taken. . When prices rise ,the issue price does reflect the market price as material are issue from the earliest consignment .therefore the change of production is low because the cost of replacing the material consumed will be higher than the price of issue. 2)Last in first out method(LIFO) method: The issues under this method are priced in the reverse order of purchase i.e., the price of the latest available consignment is taken. This method is sometimes known as the replacement cost method because materials are issued at the current cost to jobs or work orders except when purchases were made long ago. This method is suitable in times of rising prices because material will be issued from the latest consignment at a price which is closely related to the current price levels. This method was first introduced in the U.S.A.during the Second World War to get the advantages of rising prices Advantages of LIFO Method: . Like FIFO method, this is simple to operate and is useful when transactions are not too many and the prices are fairly steady.

. Like FIFO, this method recovers cost from production because actual cost of material is charged to production. . . In times of rising prices, LIFO method of pricing issues is suitable materials are issued at the current market prices which arc high .this method thus helps in showing a lower profit because of increased charged to production during periods of rising prices and lower profit reduces burden of income-tax.. Disadvantages of LIFO Method . Like FIFO, comparison between one job and the other job will become difficult because materials consumed. . Like FIFO, this method many lead to clerical errors as every time as issue is made. till..stored ledger clerk will have to go through the record to as certain the price to be charge' . For pricing a single requisition ,more than one price has often to be adopted. . The stock in hand is valued at price which does not reflect current market price. 3)A VERAGE COST METHOD: The principle on which the average cost method is based is that all of the materials in store arc show mixed up that an issue can not be made from any particular lot of purchases and ,there fore, it is proper if the materials arc issued at the average cost of materials in store. Average may be of two types : I) Simple arithmetic average. 2) Weighted arithmetic average. one job started a few minutes after charged of another of the same type many bear are different

Simple average price : A price which is calculated by dividing the total of the prices of the material in the stock from which the material to be period could be drawn by the number of the prices used in that total. Weighted average price : A price which is calculated by dividing the cost of materials in the stock from which the materials to be priced could be drawn by the total quantity of materials in the stock.

INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTION of TOPIC
In India we believe that effective communication and availability of information at the right team and time and right place is critical for an edge in business. In order to achieve this we realize to importance of and have in place, an effective IT infrastructure. Cost accounting isn’t just collecting data for history . it is an important tool in predicting and assuring future profitability . We can’t overstress the importance of our costing tools that provide complete cost estimates at the time of quotation/order entry based on your latest materials, labor and overhead costs.

MATERIAL COST CONTROL
Material cost control is the management of cost of material it consists of the following . 5. Capital costs 6. Storage costs 7. Risk of price decline 8. Risk of obsolescence

MATERIAL
Material is very important factor for production . it includes physical commodities used to manufacture the final end product. It is the starting point from which the first operation start. Material refer to all of commodities in the process of manufactures . Proper control of material

is necessary from the time order of purchase material are palced with supplies . until the have been consumed.

COST
It is the amount of resources given up in exchange for some goods or services. The cost is that which is given or a sacrifice to obtain something cost is also different from value as cost is measured utility of an article. We can define as : the amount of expenditure ( actual or notional ) incurred on or attributable to a given thing or to ascertain the cost of a given thing. in terms of money whereas values is measured in terms of usefulness or

RESULTS & DISCUSSION
• During my research in “CADBURY INDIA LTD., MALANUR” I found that MATERIAL COST CONTROL is an integral part of industrial success. • For purchasing material we should concentrate on the cost of material through material cost control company can take a top position in corporate market. • Material cost has played a very important role in economic condition of company. • After analyzing the data I have reached the conclusion that the miscellaneous expenditure of the company has reduced which is good sign and shows the capability of the company in handling wastage, losses and bad debts.

DISCUSSION
I have found here these below things from analysis of data. • For economic purchase order of 114 units of MS PIPE. We

analysis of three quotations for choosing lower cost of material. We select the B.D. Raj. & Co’s quotation because the lower cost of material. This is the 56185.469 with applying 4% ST & fright. • In store material we found these below things from the store keeping receipt. Here we show about the two type of material. ITEM CODE CC5801008 CC5801009 Re-order level 1290 2700 Max. level 1700 3600 stock Min. level 540 900 stock Avg. level 990 1500 stock

As such we can get these levels for further items. • For issuing the material we found the knowledge through FIFO and LIFO method. How material received in store and how should issue it from the store etc. • During my research period. I have found material cost control management of the company is very sound that’s why their economic position is also very sound.

OBJECTIVE OF STUDY
OBJECTIVE OF STUDY

1. To highlight the policies and procedures of Material cost control 2. To make a detailed analysis of the strategies adopted by the company for planning and monitoring costs 3. To identify the vertical areas where greater attention is needed for better management. 4. To find our better plan for company for controlling material.

SUGGESTION
During my research period I have studied the MATERIAL COST CONTROL in CADBURY IND. LTD at MALANPUR. On the basis of my study I am putting some suggestion. Which may certainly improve the efficiency of material cost control management. • FIFO and LIFO methods should be apply for keeping and issuing the material in stores. • I suggest through research in this regard to arrive at some suitable mix of both this method which gives due consideration to value, quality importance etc of stock items. • The maximum and minimum level of each item should be indicated to avoid over-stock or under-stock situation. • Internal performance report an inventory on at least monthly basis should be prepared to study the material price variance, material usage and inventory level variance from hr estimate figure. • Material should be purchase at the lower cost but also quality should be maintains.
