Law of Diminishing Marginal Productivity

An economic rule governing production which holds that if more variable input units are used along with a certain amount of fixed inputs, the overall output might grow at a faster rate initially, then at a steady rate, but ultimately, it will grow at a declining rate. The law of diminishing marginal productivity needs to be taken into account by manufacturing business managers who wish to expand production.
