Abstract: The paper investigates the development of cost deployment and focuses specifically on the new aspects of this methodology as well as on the tangible benefit it brings within a world class manufacturing (WCM) strategy.

The research has strong practical implications for both managers and entrepreneurs. Future developments of this research are fundamental to test our hypotheses in other organisations
