Web application for Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA)
Βλάχος, Ηλίας Σπυρίδων
In the context of this Master’s thesis, a web application which aims to assist in the efficiency measurement of production units with Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) techniques was developed. DEA is a non-parametric technique used for measuring the efficiency of a set of decision making units (DMUs) which convert multiple inputs into multiple outputs. DEA can be applied in many different types of DMUs for efficiency measurement, like schools, banks, hospitals etc. Easily accessible tools like web applications for efficiency measurement are quite useful, as analysts are prevented from applying the technique because of the learning curve in defining the linear problems. This web application reads data from an excel file, models the linear problems and solves them through PuLP using its solver which implements the simplex method.
