A) Describe different methods an organization can use to calculate a cost price

Cost-plus pricing - Set the price at your production cost, including both cost of goods and fixed costs at your current volume, plus a certain profit margin. For example, your widgets cost €40 in raw materials and production costs, and at sales volume, your fixed costs come to €40 per unit. Your total cost is €80 per unit. You decide that you want to operate at a 20% markup, so you add €20 to the cost and come up with a price of $80 per unit. So long as you have your costs calculated correctly and have predicted your sales volume, you will always be prepared for any possible outcome and will always gain a profit. Fair pricing - Sometimes it simply doesn't matter what the value of the product is, even if you don't have any competition. There is simply a limit to what consumers perceive as "fair". If it's that your product cost €30 to make, even if it is only calculated €10,- in value, you'd have a hard time charging twenty or thirty euro’s for it. Your customers would just feel like they were being pay off. A little market research will help you determine the maximum price consumers are willing to pay Direct costs
Direct costs are cost that are directly linked to the product being made.
A manufacture has to buy raw material to make it into a finished product. Another direct cost is labor. By labor I mean the payment that the employees get when they produce the products. For example: A clothing company needs to sell 100 shirts. In order to sell this amount of shirts it need cotton and wood in a certain amount. The manufacture needs a budget to buy all this and it also needs to pay its staff. Example: for a 100 shirts is…...

For example, the government provides education for the children of the family, which in turn pays taxes on which the state depends to keep itself running. That is, the family is independent upon the school to help children grow up to have good jobs so that they can raise and support their own families. In the process, the children become law-abiding, taxpaying citizens, who in turn support the state. If all goes well and to plan, parts of the society produce order, stability and productivity. If all doesn’t go to plan, then parts of the society then must adapt to recapture a new order, stability and productivity. For example, during a financial recession with its high rates of unemployment and inflation, social programs are trimmed or cut. Schools offer fewer programs. Then a new social order, stability and productivity occur. Functionalists also believe that society is held together by social consensus, in which members of the society agree upon, and......

...P1: Explain the principle sociological perspectives. In this assignment I will be explaining some of the different sociological perspectives in today’s society. The sociological perspectives which I will be explaining will be Functionalism, Marxism, Feminism, and interactionism, Collectivism, Postmodernism and The New Right. The first perspective which I will be explaining will be Functionalism. Functionalism is the view that our society is based onagreed norms and values. A norm is social rules that define correct behaviour in society. An example of a norm can be an individual attending school until they are the age of 18. Values are what are important to an individual and this differs in class, culture, ethnicity and gender. An example of a value which is important to most of our society is going to school, going to church or volunteering. Functionalists see social structure or the organisation of society as more important than the individual itself. They say that people are born into society and become the product if all social influences around them because they’re socialised by different institutions such as family, education, media and religion. Sociologist Talcott Parsons sees society as a system that works together to keep things running smoothly just like the human body. Social consensus is a key belief of functionalism. It allows society to continue to progress because the theory believes that we have shared norms and values in society which we must......

Functionalism sees society as a system of highly interrelated parts that work together harmoniously. The main role of an intuition was to socialise with individuals and to ensure that they understood the underlying values of their society and behaved in acceptable ways. This ensured that was order in society. An example of the functionalist approach is that they view society as a body and each part has a function for society to work harmoniously. Marxism- Marxism perspective is a structuralism model. This approach was produced by Karl Marx. He also thought that individual behaviour was shaped by society, but then he realised the economic system was the definition of society and people’s place within it. He then identified that in the industrial society of his time there were two social classes. The bourgeoisies/capitalists– the small powerful group who owned factories and the employments and the proletariat– a much larger poorer group of......

This links to This links to health as you are responsible for your own health and wellbeing and it is your responsibility to get better This links to ill health as they often fail to recognise a mental health problem, because of this it could get progressively worse and they could become very unwell and have a low self-esteem. Marxism – Society structure that is based on economic power and how wealthy you are. This has two social classes, the rich and the poor. This links to This links to health as rich people get cared for quicker. This is because they have the money to be able to get private health care. For example a poor person would have to go to a standard hospital and will have to wait hours to be seen to where as a rich person with private health care will be seen to straight away as there are less people waiting. This links to ill health as the believe that if the doctors do not find an illness then there is not one there, this means that they could have a serious health problem which a doctor may not have spotted and because they believe that there is not one there they could develop a serious illness......
