DEA Models for Two-Stage Processes : Game Approach and Efficiency Decomposition

  title={DEA Models for Two-Stage Processes : Game Approach and Efficiency Decomposition},
  author={Liang Liang and Wade D. Cook and Joe Zhu},
Data envelopment analysis (DEA) is a method for measuring the efficiency of peer decision making units (DMUs). This tool has been utilized by a number of authors to examine two-stage processes, where all the outputs from the first stage are the only inputs to the second stage. The current article examines and extends these models using game theory concepts. The resulting models are linear, and imply an efficiency decomposition where the overall efficiency of the two-stage process is a product… CONTINUE READING
