Break even analysis is a broadly used technique to study cost-volume-profit relationship.  It can be explained as - 'a system for determination of that level of activity where entire cost equals total selling price', or else 'as a system of analysis which concluded probable profit at some level of activity'. It gives the relationship among cost of production, quantity of production and the sales value.
