Download Citation | Plant-level nonconvex output adjustment and aggregate fluctuations | In most manufacturing industries plant-level output is adjusted along three margins of capacity utilization.   Highlights In manufacturing, plant-level output is adjusted in a discrete, lumpy way. Only a fraction of plants adjust output in response to shocks. Calibrated to U.S. observations, this reduces responses of aggregate output to shocks. Volatility of aggregate output becomes counter-cyclical. Expansionary government policy becomes slightly more effective in downturns. In most manufacturing industries plant-level output is adjusted along three margins of capacity utilization: shiftwork, weekend work, and closing temporarily down. Due to the discrete and lumpy nature of these margins, only a fraction of plants adjust output in response to shocks. In a business cycle model calibrated to establishment-level observations, these nonconvexities make aggregate. Output Fluctuations at the Plant Level. By Timothy F. Bresnahan and Valerie A. Ramey.

The study makes use of a new data set that contains detailed information on plant operations. The main findings of the paper are: (1) Even at the simplest fabrication and assembly plant, there are a variety of margins on which production quantities are. Lost time on the bottleneck is lost throughput which means you’ve lost the total output of the whole system. If your whole plant earns $1, an hour, then an hour lost on the bottleneck is $1, lost.
