In this study, a multi-criteria data envelopment analysis (MCDEA) model, used in the literature to moderate the homogeneity of weights dispersion, is solved using pre-emptive goal programming. The MCDEA model solved using pre-emptive goal programming gives the same relative efficiency as the classical DEA model while it improves the homogeneity of input-output weights. This conclusion is confirmed by the computational results obtained when the two models are applied to a real data set relative to the socio-economic performances of European countries and to randomly generated instances with various numbers of decision making units, inputs and outputs.

    We classify the contributions of DEA literature assessing Decision Making Units (DMUs) whose internal structure is known. Starting from an elementary framework, we define the main research areas as shared flow, multilevel and network models, depending on the assumptions they are subject to. For...

    Abstract: In evaluating decision making units (DMIJ) by using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) technique, it happens that more than one unit got efficiency score one. In such a case there should be some criterion for ranking these DMUs. Up to now, all of DEA model could rank only extreme...

    Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) assumes, in most cases, that all inputs and outputs are controlled by the Decision Making Unit (DMU). Inputs and/or outputs that do not conform to this assumption are denoted in DEA as non-discretionary (ND) factors. Banker and Morey [1986] formulated several...
