OVERVIEW OF PROCESS
The efficiency of the economy depends more than anything else on PROCESS. It is process ... the engineering and technical process ... that transforms one set of products into another set of products. The amazing products that have been created in the modern economy are produced using a variety of processes, but as engineering thermodynamics tells us, the baalance between input and output includes some things that manifest as waste, some of which have negative impact on the environment and people. In conventional accounting and business analytics the trend is to optimize the process for maximum return on investment and for money profit. With MDIA the externalities, the impacts on people and planet are also taken into consideratio.

HISTORY OF PROCESS
It is improvement in PROCESS that has enabled productivity improvement over time. Almost everything that is a part of the modern enviro-socio-economic system that supports a decent quality of life and standard of living is produced using a process that is more efficient than the process that was used in the past. Take the transport sector for example, the process to convert fuel into energy for transportation has moved from the steam locomotive of the 19th century to the jet engine of the 21st century. Take computing for example, a process that was aided by teh abacus, and later various forms of calculator to modern electronics with processors that will do many millions of calculations in a second. In the MDIA framework the standard performance of a process will make it possible to understand the truvalue of a product that has flowed through multiple processes in the course of its flow through the supply chain.

CROP AGRICULTURE - GRAIN PRODUCTION
CROP AGRICULTURE - GRAIN PRODUCTION
The prairies of the United States and Canada are one of the major grain producing areas in the world. Over the years grain yeilds have increased significantly, but there are worrying trends associated with many yiears of monoculture, high useage of persticides and herbicides and the run-off that creates water pollution.

In North America, grain harvesting has been heavily mechanized and requires large scale and high investment in equipment.

CROP AGRICULTURE - RISKS
CROP AGRICULTURE - RISKS
There are a variety of risks associated with the storage of grain. This explosian at a grain elevator killed several people in the United States

For example … in AGRICULTURE ...
better stewardship of WATER use;
… attention to pollution from run-off containing fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, etc;
… more responsible use of animal medication to avoid risk of drug resistance important for human health;
… the issue of worker exploitation and workplace safety;
… and a whole lot more.
CONCLUDING OBSERVATION ...
… more than anything else improving the EFFICIENCY of PROCESS will change the trajectory of global socio-enviro-economic performance;
… in the past efficiency has simply been about less COSTS and more PROFIT;
… in the future EFFICIENCY has to be about better QUALITY OF LIFE for PEOPLE with very little of no damage to the ENIRONMENT (PLANET)
