PPF

A four-component assessment of physical functioning. The PPF includes: 1. the time it takes a subject to walk 10 feet; 2. the time it takes to stand up from a seated position in a chair five consecutive times; 3. the grip strength in the dominant hand; and4. a test of balance and stability.Each component of the test is given a score from 0 to 4. The highest possible score on the test, indicating optimal physical functioning, is 16.

Suppose that given the production functions of X and Y (that is, the physical conditions of production) and the quantity of K and L allocated to each output, society is at a point of the production possibility frontier where 1 unit of Y substitutes for 1 unit of X or, alternatively, that the cost of production of X in terms of Y is 1 (this is called the rate of transformation of Y to X).
Key words: benchmarking, production possibility frontiers, efficiency/inefficiency measurement, J-Curve of adoption of innovations, convergence.
In this case, input supply curves are horizontal and the economy's production possibility frontier is specified for a given level of total input cost.
