What is Cost Benefit Analysis?
It is an organized process to make the right business decisions. Through this process, businesses gauge what action to take and what to not. This analysis calculates the benefits achieved from a certain process, against the cost, resources, and risks involved in it. Then, these costs are deducted from benefits to determine the feasibility and suitability of a certain project. Some analysts use modeling techniques to analyze the decisions, project nature, currency value, and intangible assets to assess how these factors can be favorable for their business success.
In this process, the benefits and expenses of each project are listed to evaluate its worth after its execution. As a result, you can find out the return on investment (RIO), internal return rate (IRR), net present value (NPV), and the return period. After this, you can conclude whether a project is beneficial for you or not. Normally, if a project’s cost is half of the receivable benefits in a year, then it is worth considering.
