About this book

MODELING PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT: Applications and Implementation Issues in DEA presents unified results from authors’ recent DEA research. These new DEA methodology and techniques are developed in application-driven scenarios that go beyond the identification of the best-practice frontier and seek solutions to aid managerial decisions. These new DEA developments are well-grounded in real world applications. Both DEA researchers and practitioners will find this book helpful. Theory is provided for DEA researchers for further development and possible extensions. However, it should also be mentioned that each theory is presented in practical terms with numerical examples, simple real management cases and verbal descriptions. It is felt that these concrete examples will be of value to researchers, students, and practitioners.
