Thus for the Kenyan industries, they have to find a way of reducing their product cost and one of the key opportunity areas of cost reduction is the production function. In view of this, this study's objective was to determine the factors that affect cement production in Kenya with a view to making recommendations for improvement and East African Portland Cement Company Limited (EAPCC) was selected as a case study for the purpose.
