Evaluating and data analysis of technical efficiency using DEA-Solver

Who should attend: Managers, researchers and scientists, postgraduate students (all subjects), analysts and those interested in assessing performance of organizational units, for instance different regional offices, bank branches, sales outlets, hospitals or schools.

What will you gain from the course: Theory of Data Envelopment Analysis, making decision based on technical efficiency scores based on multiple inputs and multiple outputs, sensitivity analysis, cost minimization, profit maximization, resource assignment, stock management, etc.

What the course will cover: The concept of relative efficiency and its measurement by Data Envelopment Analysis. Basic DEA models for measuring efficiency in multi-input multi-output situations. An illustrative assessment by DEA, carried out by course participants. Introducing to recent development in DEA including weights restrictions, assessment under variables returns to scale and target setting. Using DEA-solver installed on M.S. Excel

DEA
DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) is a mathematical method based on linear programming, optimization  and mathematical programming to evaluate technical efficiency measure using multiple-input/ multiple-output problems. It originally was developed by Charnes, Cooper, Rhodes(1978). DEA has the ability to evaluate and compare decision making units (units that the decision is going to be made for them) such as Universities, hospitals, hotels, manufacturing, site selection, tourism industry, marketing, prisons, agricultural production, banking, armed forces, sports, transportation , courts, benchmarking, index number construction and many other applications.
