The purpose of this paper is to establish a topological relation between several classes of known generalized convex models extending the approach proposed by Banker, Charnes and Cooper. Using some basic algebraic convex structures proposed by Avriel and Ben-Tal we analyze the Painlevé-Kuratowski limit of the CES-CET and Alpha-returns to scale models. It is shown that their topological limits yield the B-convex and Cobb-Douglas production models. Along this line some semi-lattice production models satisfying an alpha-returns to scale assumption are proposed.
