Cost-Volume-Profit & Breakeven Analysis

Date: Friday, September 4, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Understand the results of changes in pricing, volumes, and costs on financial performance and profitability.Cost-volume-profit (CVP) analysis helps managers understand the interrelationships among cost, volume, and profit by focusing their attention on the interactions among the prices of products, volume of activity, per unit variable costs, total fixed costs, and mix of products sold. It is a vital tool used in many business decisions such as:

  • Deciding what products to manufacture or sell,
  • What pricing policy to follow,
  • What marketing strategy to employ, and
  • What type of productive facilities to acquire.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Explain how changes in activity affect contribution margin and net operating income
Use the contribution margin ratio (CM ratio) to compute changes in contribution margin and net operating income resulting from changes in sales volume
List the effects on net operating income of changes in variable costs, fixed costs, selling price, and volume
Determine the level of sales needed to achieve a desired target profit and the break-even point
Apply CVP Analysis to a range of typical business situations
