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 because of the conditions under which many are carried out. Expand

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 beExpand

A developmental study of data envelopment analysis in measuring the efficiency of maintenance units in the U.S. air forces
We use DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) as a method for evaluating the efficiency of Air Force Wings--or, more precisely, their maintenance operations--as elements in Numbered Units in the U.S. Air Force. Expand

Preface to topics in data envelopment analysis
This paper serves as an introduction to a series of three papers which are directed to different aspects of DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) as follows: (1) a comparison of DEA and regression approaches to identifying and estimating, sources of inefficiency by means of artificially generated data, and (3) an extension of ordinary (linear programming) sensitivity analyses to deal with special features that require attention in DEA.
