Introduction

 
 
The cost of a product consists of two items: fixed cost and variable cost. Fixed costs are those which remain the same in total amount regardless of changes in volume. Variable costs are those which vary in total amount as the volume of production increases or decreases. As a result, at different levels of activity, the cost structure of a firm changes. The effect on profit on account of such variations is studied through break even analysis or cost-volume-profit analysis. This lesson deals with the various concepts, tools and techniques of cost-volume profit analysis.
