No insights concerning organization overall performance and improvements targets are available. This research aims to fulfill this gap using data envelopment analysis (DEA) as a method to complement the information provided by a set of KPIs. The methodology proposed is useful to all organizations involved in benchmarking routines.
The CCR ratio form introduced by Charnes, Cooper and Rhodes, as part of their Data Envelopment Analysis approach, comprehends both technical and scale inefficiencies via the optimal value of the ratio form, as obtained directly from the data without requiring a priori specification of weights and/or explicit delineation of assumed functional Cited by: Nonparametric methods include Data Envelopment Analyses (DEA) and the Free Disposal Hull (FDH).We use them to measure technical (technological) cal efficiency looks at the level of inputs or technically efficient means to minimise inputs at agiven level of outputs, or maximise outputs at agiven level of Size: KB.

It is a linear programming-based methodology introduced by Charnes et al. for measuring the relative efficiency of decision making units (DMUs).
A DEA analysis provides a variety of valuable by: Data Envelopment Analysis and Economics Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is a nonparametric method of measuring the efﬁciency of a decision-making unit (DMU) such as a ﬁrm or a public-sector agency, ﬁrst introduced into the Operations Research (OR) literature by Charnes, Cooper, and Rhodes (CCR) (European Journal of OperationalFile Size: KB.
Contractor Prequalification plays an important role in the bidding process of construction projects. Both the employer and the potential bidder attach great importance to it and many methods of prequalification have been used. This work propounds a potential bidder evaluation system, which is more suitable to the situation of construction project bidding.

McCabe et al.  studied an enhanced contractor prequalification model using DEA together with a methodology for determining a “practical frontier” of best contractors. These are practical problems faced by DEA researchers as well as marketing professionals that may use DEA in their benchmarking efforts.
Using our data, we perform sensitivity analysis to understand these issues and provide specific insight on the impact of missing input or output variables and observations on the benchmarking by: This wonderful gem of a book deals with all aspects of DEA.
The collection of articles by leaders in DEA is second to none. Anyone interested in using efficiency as a performance tool will learn the ins and outs by reading this handbook.

However, very little industry-driven research is being undertaken relative to other industries. The opportunities for learning and growing in this industry are enormous. Students undertaking courses or research in the field of construction management investigate, research, model and develop methods for improving engineering.

The model was developed together with a methodology for determining a “practical frontier” of the best contractors.Data envelopment analysis (DEA) is a nonparametric method in operations research and economics for the estimation of production frontiers.
It is used to empirically measure productive efficiency of decision making units (DMUs). Although DEA has a strong link to production theory in economics, the tool is also used for benchmarking in operations management, where a set of measures is selected.FRONTIER PRODUCTIVITY AND DATA ENVELOPMENT ANALYSIS The IMVP study is a benchmarking study and can be considered a form of frontier analysis in that it identified best practices (i.e., the frontier) and measured other performance relative to best practice.
