Define modified break even analysis. Give an example.
The modified break even concept combines the traditional breakeven analysis with an evaluation of consumer demand. It directly address the key question of whether consumers will actually purchases the product at different prices and in what quantities

Elasticity has 4 determinants
1- Availability of substitute
2- Classified as luxury or necessity
3- Portion of budget spent on item
4- Time
Break even point(in units)=total fixed cost/per-unit contribution to fixed cost
Break even point(in dollars)=total fixed cost/(1 – variable cost unit price)
To include target returns
Break even point(including specific dollar target return) = (total fixed cost + profit objective)/Per unit contribution.
Break even analysis is easily understood by managers and can help them see if their goals are reachable or need to be adjusted.
Modified break even analysis uses the traditional BE analysis with the consumer demand, directly addresses the key question of whether consumers will actually purchase the product at different prices and what quantities.
Yield management is a pricing strategy used to maximize revenue in situations when costs are fixed.
