Production Models and Technology

Chapter
Part of the International Series in Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 157)

Abstract

In Chap. 1, we briefly introduced the concept of a production set or a technology as a way to characterize the production possibilities in a given application. This concept is crucial in advanced benchmarking because it defines the set of possible performance outcomes against which we can evaluate the actual performance of a given firm.
