Abstract:

Efficient Facets for the additive model of DEA Data Envelopment Analysis are obtained by a new series of the linear programming models which are used to show how rates of change of outputs with respect to inputs, both analytically and computationally, may be determined along a given efficient facet. The differences between single and multiple output cases are determined and exemplified via a cone direction development. Keywords Data envelopment analysis, Efficient facet tradeoffs Production efficiency and tradeoff geometry.
