Advice 1: How to calculate the volume of output

Calculation of the volume of finished products in the enterprise is an essential element of planning not only of production, but also sales and purchasing services. It is crucial to be clear about the capacity of the company in cash or in kind.
How to calculate the volume of output
The easiest way to determine the output of this borrowing data from the statistical reports prepared by accounting for the regional statistics Committee. Take the volumetric data from this document.
If statocyst is available, then calculate the monetary value of the amount of finished products at the beginning and end of the reporting period.
Subtract the monetary value of the balance of goods manufactured from total amount of the issue during the reporting period. This number will reflect the volume of output.
This calculation is quite relative and for more correct figures must be added the difference (see section 3) to revenue from sales of finished products.
To further clarify the scope of finished products index the amount received by the percentage similar to the percentage by which the changed pricing policy of the enterprise during the reporting period. The output you should get the indexed volume of the finished product.
Dynamics of volume of production of finished products you can track the rate of change of the revenue of the enterprise.
To compare the level of revenue use data from the form 2 of the accounting reporting for two or more reporting period.
To unify the process of calculating the volume of finished goods in natural units in the following formula:
VGP = IGP + RSE – Vhhp where
VGP-finished products, pieces

IGP-output balances of finished goods, PCs

RSE-the volume of sales of finished products, PCs

Whgp – opening balances of finished goods at the beginning of the period.
Correctly calculated production volume of finished products helps to plan the sales through the existing distribution network or to decide on the extension of the network, if the production capacity enable us to satisfy a greater number of requests for manufactured products from customers.

Advice 2: How to calculate the volume of sales

The volume of sold products – hardly probable not the main indicator of efficiency of the enterprise. It depends on the sales forecast for the next period, and from that in turn the required output. Analysis of this indicator allows to evaluate the degree of implementation of the plan, the dynamics of growth of sales (sales) and to identify weaknesses and reserves to increase production and sales of products.
How to calculate the volume of sales
You will need
  • Financial statements
The volume of sold products are calculated in physical or value (monetary) terms. All information necessary for analysis can be taken from accounting or statistical reports of enterprises.
Implemented products in real terms is how many units of parts produced in the shop, how many meters of curtains sewed garment factory or how many square meters of housing was built by a construction company. The main difficulty of calculating the volume of sold production in volume terms is inhomogeneous range.
Indeed, if the factory only produces one type of product, the calculation of the volume of sold products is reduced to the calculation of units sold in each period. Much more difficult if the company produces the most diverse products. In this case, a calculation of the volume of sold products in semi-natural expression.
The calculation of a quasi-natural expression is used for generalization of different types of manufactured products. For example, a bottling plant the soda can produce mineral water, lemonade, iced tea, and each type of drinks in plastic bottles and metal cans of different volumes, etc. Then introduces a conditional indicator, for example, water bottle volume 0,5 l. All other drinks are measured in terms of the conventional bottle.
The volume of sold products can also be calculated in monetary (or monetary) terms. Of sales in value terms is the total volume of productsshipped to customers and paid for in full.
After calculating the volume of sold products it is necessary to compare it with the planned indicators and volume produced products. This analysis will allow you to properly plan resource needs and production rates of products and predict the further pace of sales.
