While making a capital budgeting decision, when we decide whether the project is feasible or not we always make assumptions regarding the life of the project, variable cost, selling price, contribution, Incremental fixed cost and discounting rate,while making those assumptions it is clearly visible that all the factors wont remain the same.

There would be a deviation from the assumptions made by us, hence we conduct a sensitivity analysis of each risk factors in unfavourable direction and then see the effect on NPV and IRR, Then upon sufficient analysis we decide whether we should accept the project or not
