This book presents a new theoretical framework for the analysis of production processes. Based on a rigorous reconstruction of the intellectual heritage of economics, it also considers issues traditionally left aside by economists–the distinctions of the three dimensions of the production process (tasks, capabilities, and materials in process), the organizational approach to scale and size, and the idea that different institutional set-ups may be compatible with the same objective standard of efficiency.
