A comparison of dea and sfa benjamin miranda tabak, daniel oliveira cajueiro e marina v b dias january, 2014 based on the application of data envelopment analysis and stochastic frontier approach to a sample of chinese local banks our ndings show data envelopment analysis was rst proposed by charnes et al (1978) and was devel-. The study examines the application of yardstick methods using data envelopment analysis (dea) and stochastic frontier analysis (sfa) we find that the cost efficiency of each of the czech dsos is different, which indicates a suitability of introduction of individual efficiency factors in.
Data envelopment analysis (dea) is a nonparametric method in operations research and economics for the estimation of production frontiers [clarification needed] it is used to empirically measure productive efficiency of decision making units (or dmus. Using dea and sfa data envelopment analysis (dea) are supported under different technology (charnes1981) if the package benchmarking is loaded in both cases the data will be cooper, and rhodes, “evaluating program and managerial efﬁciency: an application of data envelopment analysis to program follow through”, management science. In this respect we caution against widespread application of either sfa or dea until such time that the field of efficiency and productivity measurement understand how and why these approaches portray efficiency and productivity the way they do. Applications of both non-parametric methods such as data envelopment analysis (dea) and parametric methods such as stochastic frontier analysis (sfa) will be considered background in order to determine the relevance of dea and sfa studies in developing countries, it is necessary to be aware of the context in which they develop.

[taylor & francis online], [web of science ®] [google scholar]) provides a comprehensive review of the application of dea and sfa to the port sector however, standard dea tends to be sensitive to the number of variables of the chosen sample and unable to account for their random nature. Application of dea and sfa on the measurement of operating efficiencies for 27 international container ports by lie-chien lin and lih-an tseng abstract abstract: the operating efficiency of a port is the critical element for its competitiveness in the international market previous research for port operating efficiencies measurement. While going through different studies in the literature on the application of dea and sfa, one may realize that in most of the cases, dea and sfa have been applied separately and the results obtained through these techniques are compared in the end by various methods.

This book covers recent advances in efficiency evaluations, most notably data envelopment analysis (dea) and stochastic frontier analysis (sfa) methods it introduces the underlying theories, shows how to make the relevant calculations and discusses applications the aim is to make the reader aware of the pros and cons of the different methods and to show how to use these methods in both. Estimation of the efficiency measurement from the application of dea and sfa are examined moreover, this paper is intended to create a common understanding. Data envelopment analysis (dea) is a non parametric data analytic technique that is extensively used by various research communities in this study, we investigate the relative operating efficiencies of a set of cattle feedlot farm in iran. Application of the dea methodology anthony makrydemetres, panagiotis d zervopoulos data envelopment analysis (dea) (charnes et al, 1978) and the unlike dea, sfa is a parametri methodology, whih takes into a ount the effet of ‘noise.

With the ccr model and assumes m inputs, s outputs and n dmus respectively, the linear programming problem for dmuk is declare as: application of dea and sfa on the measurement of agricultural technical efficiency in mena countries 45 u s x rk hx r r 1 v max m (1) i x ik i 1 s t. The nonparametric data envelopment analysis (dea) model has become increasingly popular in the analysis of productive efficiency, and the number of empirical applications is now very large recent theoretical and mathematical research has also contributed to a deeper understanding of.
3 viewed as a stochastic extension of dea in the same way as sfa extends the classic deterministic econometric frontier models by aigner and chu (1968), timmer (1971), richmond (1974), and others. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the levels of technical efficiency in agricultural sector of mena countries by using data envelopment analysis (dea) and stochastic frontier analysis (sfa) approaches in 2007-2008. Data envelopment analysis the paper has spawned a multitude of papers on the theory and application of dea (sfa) agep delivers occasional short courses on dea and sfa 4 conference committee conference organizers: emmanuel thanassoulis, aston business school, aston university, uk.
Several software packages have been developed to solve some of the most common dea and sfa models this book relies on r, a free, open source software environment for. Covers recent advances in data envelopment analysis (dea) and stochastic frontier analysis (sfa) methods authors developed the r package called benchmarking, which implements the main methods within both dea and sfa ideal guide for graduate students, advanced consultants and practitioners with an. Non-parametric data envelopment analysis (dea) and parametric stochastic frontier analysis (sfa) have become very popular in the analysis of productive efficiency this study undertakes a comparison of the sfa and the constant returns to scale (crs) and variable returns to scale (vrs) output.
