Capacity Utilisation and Fixed Costs

Capacity is a measure of how much output a business can produce over a given period e.g. customers per day, capacity of units from a production line.

Capacity utilisation measures the proportion (percentage) of a firm’s total capacity is used over a given time period. i.e. (actual output / capacity) x 100%
