There is much that is unsatisfactory in the way in which the production function is viewed and described in the literature. This article defines four dimensions along which aspects of the production function can be measured. The dimensions are elaborated upon and their usefulness for describing real‐life situations is explored. Possible directions for both empirical and theoretical research using the concept are suggested.
