I'm new to this myself but from what little experience I have, I would say.
It really depends on how much beer you want to have at the end of the process. Accounting for all loss at every stage of production. This can only be accurately calculated by knowing your equipment and ingredients then adjusting the recipe size so at the end you have the volume of beer you're shooting for.
If you look at some recipes that require large dry hop additions the volume of beer absorbed by the hops is subtracted to get the final quantity.
Hope that made sense. Cheers!
