Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis

In this Online Training (OLT) course, the learner is introduced to the relationship between Total Cost (fixed and variable cost) and Volume, then the relationship between Price and Volume. We will look at Volume, Revenue per Unit, Variable Cost per Unit, Fixed Costs, Profit, and the difference between rational and irrational pricing behaviors. We will also determine at what volume a product needs to be sold in order for a company to break even on their costs. Along the way we will introduce you to the terminology, the notation, and the graphical aspects of Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis.
