Front Cover
Nova Science Publishers, Feb 24, 2021 - Data envelopment analysis - 306 pages
"This book presents and compares 11 software packages of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). Performance measurement is done by various methods, one of which is DEA. Due to the ability of DEA models to meet practical requirements, extensive research can be conducted in the fields of mathematics, management, economics, and engineering. Therefore, during recent decades, the use of this method has been considered with significant growth among researchers. DEA evaluates the performance of Decision Making Units (DMUs) by using linear programming. Since linear programming should be solved for each DMU, performance measurement for a large number of DMUs is difficult and time-consuming. For this purpose, various software packages have been designed and developed to address these problems. Each of these software's is designed for different purposes and has different features and applications. The main objectives of this book are to introduce, express the advantages and disadvantages of each of these software packages, as well as their comparisons"--
