To calculate the standard cost of direct materials, multiply the direct materials standard price of $ by the direct materials standard [ ].

Definition: A standard cost is an estimated expense that normally occurs during the production of a product or performance of a service. In other words, this is theoretically the amount of money a company will have to spend to produce a product or perform a service under normal conditions.
