At the workshop on "Size and Productive Efficiency -- The Wider Implications" held at IIASA in June 1979 there was a great deal of discussion on the dynamics of scale, with particular focus on scale, technology and the learning curve, scale and innovation and the effect of uncertainty about the future on scale decisions.

This paper reports the results of research on using formal models of the decision on process and scale in order to understand the dynamics of change in scale and process mix.
