The methodology is applied to 91 four-digit Canadian manufacturing industries to obtain estimates of MES, returns to scale, and suboptimal capacity.

For a subsample of industries, we demonstrate Via, the cost function estimates of VIES and returns to scale are more closely related to engineering estimates than are the ad hoc estimates usually Cited by: "A cost function approach to the estimation of minimum efficient scale, returns to scale, and suboptimal capacity: With an application to Canadian manufacturing," European Economic Review, Elsevier, vol.

15(2), pages Assessing returns to scale in research may be useful in predicting certain aspects of the development of artificial intelligence, in particular the dynamics of an intelligence explosion. Results The conclusions in this article are drawn from an incomplete review of academic literature assessing research efficiency, presented in Table 1.

Canadian industries operated at percent of their production capacity in the last quarter ofdown from a downwardly revised percent in the previous period but above market expectations of percent. This was the fifth decrease in six quarters, mainly due to declines in mining and quarrying (pp to %), in particular, potash mining amid disruptions in the rail.

Canadian Manufacturing magazine is the top source for daily industry-focused news in Canada. We cover the world of manufacturing across all the. The reason there is no such thing as decreasing returns to scale was explained well by Tjalling Koopmans in his book Three Essays on the State of Economic Science.

The argument is the replication argument: if all factors are duplicated, then an identical copy of the production process can be set up and output will be doubled. (a) Increasing returns to scale and high fixed costs may be inconsistent with perfect competition. In such a case, the initial autarkic state may be a suboptimal equilibrium.

For example, relative prices may not equal marginal rates of transformation. [35] †Accordingly, it is necessary to examine the returns to scale of Chinese manufacturing sectors with a method rather than DEA.

The Diewert-Fox model as elucidated in Diewert and Fox [1] provides a good candidate for this purpose. A single firm or production unit is considered in the model that produces N outputs and uses M inputs for Cited by: 4.

Abstract. The primary purpose of this article is to investigate whether or not economies of scale exist in the production of hospital services. In previous studies the results have implied the existence of economies of scale, but the question has not been satisfactorily by:   We discuss returns to scale (applied to an intermediate macroeconomics course).

What were the causes of the decline in productivity in Canadian manufacturing in the post-World War Two period. marginal gain of capacity utilization is increasing in the level of employ-ment but decreasing in the level of capital stock (as in the model of Greenwood et al.

[31]). In addition, ignoring capacity utilization tends to bias the observed returns-to-scale upward (e.g., Shapiro [46].

5. Nguyen and Reznek () used plant-level data for five 4-digit SIC industries to estimate and compare the degrees of returns-to-scale for establishments of various size classes for the years and They found that the estimated scale elasticities of all plant sizes have values approximately equal to one.

They, therefore, concluded that both small and large establishments under study Cited by: [ Placeholder content for popup link ] WordPress Download Manager - Best Download Management Plugin.

The analysis here finds that manufacturing productivity increases with scale, as does capacity utilization. Although scale is not the only challenge to improving productivity, it is a factor that has helped to maintain or improve productivity in the US sector while Canada’s.

Title: Reassessing Aggregate Returns to Scale With Standard Theory and Measurement Author: Harold L. Cole and Lee E. Ohanian Created Date: 2/15/ PM. tween returns to scale and size, confusion still exists in the profession. As noted in a recently published textbook by Beattie and Taylor, the distinction between returns to scale and size is not always clear, and the terminology is at times, inappropriately, employed interchange-ably.

In layman's terms it means that as you scale your input factors of production, the output increases by more than the scale factor of the inputs. Here's an example: Let's say that I have a factory that uses 10 units of labor (L) and 20 units of ca.

Note that as output (scale) increases from Q 1 S to Q 2 S, labor productivity (given by the reciprocal of the unit-labor requirement) also rises. In other words, output per unit of labor input increases as the scale of production rises, hence increasing returns to scale.

Another way to characterize economies of scale is with a decreasing. • If φ⇒1 increasing returns to scale. The nice feature of this model is that the coefficient on ln(in the above regression is the inverse of the returns to scale parameter. Thus, when we estimate the File Size: 64KB.

An earlier report, Quest for Quality in Canadian Health Care: Continuous Quality Improvement (), identified information available in the existing literature on quality initiatives, achievements and implementation strategies. While implementing and adapting existing procedures to meet the needs of the individual systems is often the strategy.quality in the incoming returns, such that returns with lower quality take a higher amount of time (and more materials) to remanufacture.

If the firm wants to increase the amount of remanufactured products at a given period, it has to “dig deeper” into the returns, which means remanufacturing returns with Cited by: 5.Rokuhan Z Scale Structures & Scenery.
