Business Costing and Feasibility ZAA113

This unit is being phased out, no new enrolments are being taken.


Knowing costs and returns, and being able to judge whether proposed changes are feasible or not from a financial point of view, are basic skills of effective business managers. This unit introduces the rationale and basic approaches behind costing and feasibility analysis. It shows how to cost a business operation and how to make simple calculations to determine the financial feasibility of a proposed change. From small scale changes involving existing operations, to larger scale investments involving capital expenditure, examples are given to illustrate the importance of being able to calculate costs and returns, and make judgements about financial feasibility.
