Efficiency Analysis for Exogenously Fixed Inputs and Outputs

- Economics, SociologyOper. Res.
- 1986

This work evaluates the relative technical and scale efficiencies of decision making units DMUs when some of the inputs or outputs are exogenously fixed and beyond the discretionary control of DMU managers through mathematical programming formulations.

A structure for classifying and characterizing efficiency and inefficiency in Data Envelopment Analysis

- Economics, Sociology
- 1991

DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) attempts to identify sources and estimate amounts of inefficiencies contained in the outputs and inputs generated by managed entities called DMUs (Decision Making…

Continuity of DEA Efficiency Measures

- Economics, MathematicsOper. Res.
- 2003

Focusing on convex production possibility sets, this work gives examples where radial DEA measures fail to be continuous, i.e., they "jump" under small data perturbations.

Chance constrained efficiency evaluation

- Economics, Sociology
- 1995

A model for efficiency evaluation based upon the theory of chance constrained programming is developed. The model uses a piecewise linear envelopment of confidence regions for observed stochastic…

Linear Programming Models for the Measurement of Environmental Performance of Firms—Concepts and Empirical Results

- Economics
- 1997

I use linear programming models to define standardised, aggregate environmental performance indicators for firms. The best practice frontier obtained corresponds to decision making units showing the…

Nonparametric Methods for Evaluating Economic Efficiency and Imperfect Competition

- Economics
- 2002

This article unifies and extends ideas from nonparametric production analysis and DEA for testing organizational efficiency. We show how the admissible price set can be restricted to account for…

Using Value Efficiency Analysis to Benchmark Nonhomogeneous Units

Measuring the Efficiency of Decision Making Units with Some New Production Functions and Estimation Methods.

- Economics, Sociology
- 1976

Abstract : A series of linear programming models are used to clarify and extend a measure of efficiency. The duals to these models are shown to yield estimates of production coefficients from the…

Estimating Efficient Production Functions Under Increasing Returns to Scale

- Economics
- 1962

AN earlier paper by one of us (Farrell, 1957) developed, inter alia, a method for estimating efficient production functions from observations of the inputs and outputs of a number of individual…

Management Models and Industrial Applications of Linear Programming

- Economics
- 1961

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…

The Xistence of X-Efficiency

- Economics
- 1976

Harvey Leibenstein called attention in an influential article (1966) to a source of economic inefficiency which was given the awful name of X[in]efficiency. He cited studies in which misallocations…

An explicit general solution in linear fractional programming

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- 1973

The formulations as well as the proofs and the transformations provided by the general linear fractional programming theory are here employed to provide a substantial simplification for this class of cases.

Parameter-free convex equivalent and dual programs of fractional programming problems

SummaryAn appropriate generalization ofCharnes-Cooper's [1962] variable transformation is introduced, by which a parameter-free convex program is associated to nonlinear fractional programs. The…

Duality for nonlinear fractional programs

- MathematicsZ. Oper. Research
- 1973

Duality results for nonlinear fractional programming problems are developed by using some known results connecting the solutions of a non linear fractional program with those of a suitably defined parametric convex program.
