What is Scalable

This is where a person, machinery or department can cope with extra work load. It can increase the number of units or work that it is designed for.

E.g If you have a department that is working when the company has 100,000 units of sales and this is not its top limit. If the company’s turnover was 1 million then the department will still be able to cope with the workload comfortably. The department can be said to be scalable.
