Cost Volume Profit Analysis looks at the behavior of total revenues collected, total costs, and the operating income based on differences in units sold, their sales price, variable cost per item, and the overhead fixed costs. Management undertakes a series of steps during each cost volume profit analysis review, which include:
- Understand the issue
- Gather information
- Develop predictive alternatives
- Select an alternative to address the issue
- Implement the alternative and evaluate its performance
Using the above framework for evaluating an effort under cost volume profit analysis, describe a specific example and how you would use these steps to determine the ultimate decision to be taken.
