I have decided to produce and open a customize car garage because there is a lack of professional fitting shops around and this would bring more a lot of profit as customers would come to me due to the number of shops around. Also it is a well profited industry as one project could bring you a lot of money and depending on quality of service and end product I may get a few projects from celebrities as there are contacts within the area.

An example of a break even analysis is shown below: CRITICAL PATH ANALYSIS This legal document needs to be produced in order to see the least time it takes to do a certain amount of tasks in managing the project. An example of this is shown below: PROFIT AND LOSS ANALYSIS This legal document needs to be produced in order to see whether the business is making a profit or a loss. All these documents will be checked regularly during a certain period in order to see whether I am succeeding and achieving what I had first planned before I started my own business. As in whether I have made the sales I planned to sell and whether I made more or less profit then I had predicted. ...read more.
