This paper considers the problem of optimal dynamic allocation of factors of production in a multiproduct firm. In particular we study a firm which produces by means of fixed assets an (intermediary) output that can be sold on the market or used within the firm to produce a second output which can be sold as a final product or can be added to the existing capital stock. We show the existence of optimal trajectories, establish some stability properties and provide further characteristics.
