BEP Estimation Application used Fuzzy C-means, one of the fuzzy cluster algorithm, takes variable cost,  fixed cost, and total unit production as input then processed to find the suitable price and the break even point. The ouput are various kinds of price with it’s BEP that be devided into three groups:  low, middle, and high selling price.
