Cost/Benefit Analysis is a decision-making tool to compare costs (negative results) vs. benefits (positive results) of a proposed change to a process. The costs can include labor, equipment, materials and time, and the benefits often include increased customer satisfaction, increased revenue, cost avoidance and reduced cycle time.
