Most productive scale size (MPSS)

MPSS is a unit (point) on the efficiency frontier that maximises the average productivity for its given input-output mix and after which decreasing returns to scale set in. See Banker & Kemerer (1989) on how to compute the MPSS. [Banker R and Kemerer C (1989) ‘Scale economies in new software development’, IEEE Trans. On Softw. Eng.., 15, pp 1199-1205.]
