An MOLP based procedure for finding efficient units in DEA models
In this paper a multiple objective linear programming (MOLP) problem whose feasible region is the production possibility set with variable returns to scale is proposed. By solving this MOLP problem by multicriterion simplex method, the extreme efficient Pareto points can be obtained. Then the extreme efficient units in data envelopment analysis (DEA) with variable returns to scale, considering the specified theorems and conditions, can be obtained. Therefore, by solving the proposed MOLP problem, the non-dominant units in DEA can be found. Finally, a numerical example is provided. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2009
