Basic Profit Models

Chapter 3

Part 1 – Influence Diagram

slide2

SPREADSHEET MODELING

In building spreadsheets for deterministic models, we will look at:

  • ways to translate the black box representation into a spreadsheet model.
  • recommendations for good spreadsheet model design and layout
  • suggestions for documenting your models
  • useful features of Excel for modeling and analysis

SPREADSHEET MODELING

Two ingredients combine to make Apple Pies:

Fruit and frozen dough

Step 1: Study the Environment and Frame the

Situation

Critical Decision: Setting the wholesale pie price

Decision Variable: Price of the apple pies (this plus cost parameters will determine profits)

Example 1: Simon Pie

The Pies are then processed and sold to local grocery stores in order to generate a profit.

Follow the three steps of model building.

SPREADSHEET MODELING

Step 2: Formulation

Using “Black Box” diagram, specify cost parameters

Model

Pie Price

Exogenous Variables

Unit Cost, Filling

Unit Cost, Dough

Unit Pie Processing Cost

Fixed Cost

An Influence Diagram pictures the connections between the model’s exogenous variables and a performance measure (e.g., profit).

profit

The next step is to develop the relationships inside

the black box.A good way to approach this is to create an Influence Diagram.

slide5

SPREADSHEET MODELING

start with a performance measure variable.

Decompose this variable into two or more intermediate variables that combine mathematically to define the value of the performance measure.

Further decompose each of the intermediate variables into more related intermediate variables.

Continue this process until an exogenous variable is defined (i.e., until you define an input decision variable or a parameter).

To create an Influence Diagram:

Step 3: Model Construction

Based on the previous Influence Diagram, create the equations relating the variables to be specified in the spreadsheet.

Simon’s Initial Model Input Values

background
Background
  • The Generalized Profit Model:
    • A decision-maker will break-even when profit is zero.
    • Set the generalized profit model equal to zero, and then solve for the quantity (Q).
    • For simplicity, assume that the quantity produced is equal to the quantity sold. This assumption will be relaxed in the module on decision analysis.
basic relationships
Basic Relationships
  • Profit (π) = Revenue (R) - Cost (C)
  • Revenue (R)= Selling price (SP) x Quantity (Q)
  • Cost (C) = [Variable cost (VC) x Quantity (Q)] + Fixed Cost (FC)
  • Remember quantity produced = quantity sold
basic relationships con t
Basic Relationships con’t
  • By substitution:
  • π = (SP x Q) –((VC x Q) + FC)
  • π = SP*Q - VC*Q – FC
  • π = (SP-VC)*Q - FC

Notice sign reversal when parentheses are removed!

Just a bit of algebraic reorganization…

contribution margin
Contribution Margin
  • If Contribution Margin (CM) = SP-VC, then by substitution…
  • π = CM*Q – FC
  • In case you want to figure the quantity at break-even, you just need to rearrange
break even quantity
Break-Even Quantity
  • π = CM*Q – FC
  • π + FC = CM*Q
  • (π + FC)/CM = (CM*Q)/CM
  • (π + FC)/CM = Q
  • Q = (π + FC)/CM
  • In the case of break-even, where π =0, the formula boils down to:
  • Q = FC/CM
quantity and profit example
Quantity and Profit Example
  • Again, Q = (FC + π)/CM
  • If fixed cost is $150,000 per year, selling price per unit (SP) is $400, and variable cost per unit (VC) is $250, what quantity (Q) will produce a profit of $300,000?
  • Q = ($150,000+$300,000)/($400-$250)
  • Q = $450,000/$150
  • Q = 3000
cross over point
Cross-Over Point
  • The cross-over point (or indifference point) is found when we are indifferent between two plans.
  • In other words, the quantity when profit is the same for each of two plans.
cross over point con t
Cross-Over Point, con’t
  • To find the cross-over point for Plan A and B, set the profit formulas for each plan equal to each other:
  • πplanA = πplanB, so
  • (CM*Q – FC) planA = (CM*Q – FC)planB
  • QAtoB = (FCA - FCB)/(CMA – CMB)
cross over point con t1
Cross-Over Point, con’t
  • So all you need are the fixed costs and contribution margins (selling price and variable cost) to solve.
  • For example, here are three plans
cross over point con t2
Cross-Over Point, con’t

What is the profit at each of these points?

Cross-Over Points

A to B B to C

QCO(150,000-450,000)/(150-250) (450,000-2,850,000)/(250-300)

= 3000 units = 48,000 units

calculating profit at the cross over
Calculating Profit at the Cross-Over
  • After calculating cross-over, we have a quantity that can be plugged back into the formula to find profit at the cross-over point

πB = CMB*Q - FCB

= 250(48,000) - 450,000

= $11,550,000, or

πC = 300(48,000) - 2,850,000

= $11,550,000

πA = CMA*Q – FCA

= 150(3000) - 150,000

= $300,000, or

πB = 250(3000) - 450,000

= $300,000
