Individual technical efficiencies have been obtained for small, medium and large sawmills, and their determinants have been estimated using a procedure proposed by Battese and Coelli (1995). The results support the hypothesis that sawmills in the sample failed to achieve full technical efficiency.

Kori{teni su jednogodi{nji podaci pilana na koje je primijenjen stohasti~ki grani~ni funkcijski model proizvodnje. Posebne vrijednosti tehni~ke u~inkovitosti dobivene su za male, srednje i velike pilane, a utjecajni ~initelji procijenjeni su primjenom postupka {to su ga predlo`ili Battese i Coelli (1995). Dobiveni su rezultati potvrdili hipotezu da istra`ivane pilane nisu u potpunosti tehni~ki u~inkovite. Klju~ne rije~i: tehni~ka u~inkovitost, grani~na proizvodna funkcija, industrijska prerada drva 1 INTRODUCTION 1. UVOD The impact of technological change on producti- vity has been seriously considered in economic literatu- re, since the continuous improvement of new produc- tion technology has a considerable impact on the eco- nomic growth of businesses. Despite the acknowledged importance of techno- logical innovation and of technologie
