## The input and output data for an industry given in the table. Find out various productivitymeasuresliketotal,multifactorand partialmeasure.

Output and Input production data in dollar (\$)

Output

1. Finished units 10,000
2. Work in progress 2,500
3. Dividends 1,000
4. Bonds -------
5. Other income --------

 Input 1. Human 3,000 2. Material 153 3. Capital 10,000 4.    Energy 540 5. Other Expenses 1,500 Solution: Total measure =     Total Output = 13,500   = 0.89 Total Input 15,193

Multi factor measure = Total Output = 13,500 = 4.28

Human+Material    3,153

Multi factor measure = Finished units   = 10,000 = 3.17

Human+Material       3,153 Partial Measure1 = Total Output = 13,500 = 25

Energy                   540

Partial Measure2=    Finished units = 10,000 = 18.52

Energy               540

Note: For multifactor and partial measures it is not necessary to use total output as numerator. Often, it is describe to create measures that represent productivity as it relates to some particular output of interest.

Other fields for the measurement of partial measures of productivity are:

Restaurant                                                          Customers (Meals) per labour hour

Retail Store                                                        Sales per square foot

Utility plant                                                       Kilowatts per ton of coal

Paper mill                                                          Tons of paper per cord of wood
