uses in which the resources are employed to execute a production-process-research project--a research-project aimed at discovering a production process whose use will lower the average allocative total cost or perhaps the average private total cost of producing a relevant quantity of an existing product (where the allocative cost of using a resource in any way equals the allocative value the resource would have generated in its alternative use [the "opportunity cost" of using the resource in the way in question]);

This entails, of course, a more sophisticated evaluation than that involved in the assessment of specific allocative outcomes.
Firm efficiency consists of two components: technical efficiency, which simply reflects the ability of a firm to obtain maximal output from a given set of inputs, and allocative efficiency, which basically reflects the ability of a firm to use the inputs in optimal proportions, given their respective prices and the production technology, (Farrell, 1957).
