The advantages and methodology of data envelopment analysis use in division efficiency assement

Iryna Anatoliyivna Nechayeva, Daryna Sergiyivna Proskurkina


The methods of Data Envelopment Analysis, terms and restrictions of its use have been considered in the paper. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is a non-parametric method of operations research and economic analysis. This method is used for the estimation of the productivity margin and evaluation of the effectiveness of the decision making individual. Non-parametric approaches have the benefit of not assuming a particular functional form for the margin. A comprehensive assessment of the company's affiliated branch that provides educational services has been carried out. As a result of the research there has been formed a composite subdivision the resources of which are used in the most efficient way by the organization to provide maximum number of services.
