Economies of Scale

The reduction in the cost of each additional unit produced as all factors of production increase. Factors contributing to economies of scale include discounts on bulk purchases of raw materials, the ability to use fixed assets to full capacity, the skills to use particular labor to its fullest capability, and the skills to use management to govern the largest number of people as efficiently as possible.
