A manufacturing statement is a document which outlines the total costs incurred by a company, a business or any other enterprise in producing or manufacturing a particular item or product. It is a document which contains a number of elements like overhead costs, labor charges, associated costs and so on, and is usually prepared in order to subtract the total manufacturing cost from the overall profits obtained by the company on selling the products. Thus, a manufacturing statement must be written well, with accuracy.
