  We extend the concept of returns to scale in Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to the weight restriction environments. By adding weight restrictions, the status of returns to scale, i.e. increasing, constant, and decreasing, may need a change. We first define "returns to scale" underweight restrictions ...  Read More

Volume 2, Issue 4 , December 2013, , Pages 15-25

  Data envelopment analysis (DEA) is a non-parametric analytical methodology widely used in efficiency measurement of decision making units (DMUs). Conventionally, after identifying the efficient frontier, each DMU is compared to this frontier and classified as efficient or inefficient. This thesis introduces ...  Read More
