Contract Management Term of the Month

economies of scope: A production process in which it is cheaper to produce two (or more) products together rather than separately. This property is also termed "joint production." For example, the production of beef also results in the production of leather and the production of lumber also results in the production of sawdust. Economies of scope can be beneficial, giving a producer multiple products to sell, but it can also be problematic when one of the joint products is undesirable, such as pollution or residual waste.
