marginal product

  

Definition

Output that results from one additional unit of a factor of production (such as a labor hour or machine hour), all other factors remaining constant. Whereas the marginal cost indicates the added cost incurred in producing an additional unit of output, marginal product indicates the added output accruing to an additional input. Since marginal product is measured in physical units produced, it is also called marginal physical product.
