Relationships between productivity, efficiency, utilization, and quality
Article publication date: 1 June 2000
This paper reviews the literature relating to concepts and definitions of productivity, utilization, and efficiency. From an analysis of these concepts and definitions, the author derives two unifying formulae, the first relating these factors to one another and the second adding in a quality factor. System improvement strategies are then discussed based on these two equations.
