[fre] C. Antonelli - De l'évolution de quelques fonctions de coût et de productivité dans les entreprises textiles selon leurs dimensions Cet article analyse les fonctions de coût global et de productivité propres à chaque catégorie de taille d'entreprises textiles italiennes dans la deuxième moitié des années 70. L'analyse des fonctions décomposées en leurs éléments principaux fait ressortir une variation substantielle de la D.O.M. (dimension optimale minimum) selon l'élément de coût considéré. Du point de vue de la D.O.M. technique, les entreprises textiles italiennes ne semblent pas avoir intérêt à rechercher une dimension moyenne-grande. Il paraît préférable de réunir différentes lignes de produits, ayant une D.O.M. technique moyenne-petite, sous une direction financière, commerciale et administrative de grande D.O.M. [eng] C. Antonelli - Costs and productivity in the textile firms,as a function of their size The purpose of this note is to analyse total cost and productivity by size of firm in the Italian cotton and wool industry in the second half of the seventies. The analysis is broken down into the principal elements (e.g. labour costs, financial costs, organization costs) of total cost and productivity functions and shows substantial differences in the various M.E.S. (minimum efficient sizes). Italian textile firms appear to have no clear incentive to expand into medium-large dimensions from the view point of technical M.E.S. A preferable alternative seems to be one of producing different products with a small-medium technical M.E.S. and a large financial, commercial and managerial M.E.S.
