Break even analysis, Cost Accounting


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.


Sometimes, both are taken as synonymous.  except, where cost profit value analysis consist of the activity of profit planning, break even analysis is simply one of the techniques used for that process.
