Analysis and Construction of Uniformly Compact Production Correspondences

  • Wolfgang Teusch
Conference paper


According to our point of view, the complexity of a technology set is in general prohibitive for its global and at the same time transparent description. But while the technology set as a whole may be highly complex, it may have constituent parts which have a relatively simple structure and which allow for descriptions by quite transparent production models. Following this line of thought, a closer analysis of the question as to how the production of the whole technology set relates to the production models of the parts would be very rewarding.
