Data Envelopment Analysis as a Kaizen Tool: SBM Variations Revisited

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

Slacks-based measure (SBM) (Tone (2001), Pastor et al. (1999)) has been widely utilized as a representative non-radial DEA model. In Tone (2010), I developed four variants of the SBM model where main concerns are to search the nearest point on the efficient frontiers of the production possibility set. However, in the worst case, a massive enumeration of facets of polyhedron associated with the production possibility set is required. In this paper, I will present a new scheme, called SBM-Max, for this purpose which requires a limited number of additional linear program solutions for each inefficient DMU. Although the point thus obtained is not always the nearest point, it is acceptable for practical purposes and from the point of computational loads. Inefficient DMUs can be improved to the efficient status with less input-reductions and less output-enlargement. Thus, this model proposes a Kaizen (improvement) tool by DEA.
