BISAC: MAT000000

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. Because DEA models are able to meet practical requirements, they can be used to conduct extensive research in the fields of mathematics, management, economics, and engineering. Therefore, during recent decades, researchers have increasingly relied on this method. 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. As such, various software packages have been developed to address these problems. Each piece of software is designed for a different purpose and has different features and applications. The main objectives of this book are to introduce each of these software packages and express their advantages and disadvantages.
