Abstract

Dans ce papier, les auteurs proposent une méthode générique permettant de mesurer la variété au sein d'une famille de technologies. Cette méthode de mesure de la variété est appliquée aux technologies du raffinage. Les résultats font apparaître des comportements classiques de spécialisation qui peuvent s'interpréter dans le cadre de la théorie des niches.
