    A firm's Production Function (PF) is related to its Marginal Product of Labor (MPL). The PF is a term used to describe the relationship between the quantity of the inputs used in production and the quantity of output from production. The MPL is a term used to describe the increase in the amount of output from an additional unit of labor. The MPL is related to the Value of the Marginal Product (VMP) because the VMP is the marginal product of an input times the price of the output. The Firm’s Value of Marginal Product (FVMP) is related to its Demand for Labor (DL) because the DL curve tells the quantity of labor that a firm demands at any given wage.
