Technical Efficiency Estimation via Metafrontier Technique with Factors that Affect Supply Chain Operations
This paper presents a metafrontier production function and investigates factors that affect textile and apparel supply chain operations for firms operating under different technologies and ownership structures. Results show variability in efficiency scores. In addition, we find supply chain operations shift the production function and enhance technical efficiency.
