Measuring the efficiency of decision making units
Some Models for Estimating Technical and Scale Inefficiencies in Data Envelopment Analysis
In management contexts, mathematical programming is usually used to evaluate a collection of possible alternative courses of action en route to selecting one which is best. In this capacity,…

Foundations of data envelopment analysis for Pareto-Koopmans efficient empirical production functions
The paper presents a method of attack which splits the problem into two non-linear or linear programming parts, i determining optimal probability distributions, ii approximating the optimal distributions as closely as possible by decision rules of prescribed form.
Evaluating Program and Managerial Efficiency: An Application of Data Envelopment Analysis to Program Follow Through
A model for measuring the efficiency of Decision Making Units =DMU's is presented, along with related methods of implementation and interpretation, and suggests the additional possibility of new approaches obtained from PFT-NFT combinations which may be superior to either of them alone.
Deterministic Equivalents for Optimizing and Satisficing under Chance Constraints
Chance constrained programming admits random data variations and permits constraint violations up to specified probability limits. Different kinds of decision rules and optimizing objectives may be…
Management Models and Industrial Applications of Linear Programming
An accelerating increase in linear programming applications to industrial problems has made it virtually impossible to keep abreast of them, not only because of their number and diversity but also…
