Measuring Economic Efficiency of Kidney Bean Production using Non-Discretionary Data Envelopment Analysis
Efficient use of assets in agriculture is a goal for policy-makers and farmers. Agricultural input resources are scarce therefore optimum use of inputs in different agricultural operations is important. Mathematical programming technique such as data envelopment analysis (DEA) is a well-known approach for estimation efficiency of agricultural DMUs. In this study, efficiency of kidney bean production in twelve provinces of Iran has been studied. Inputs were cost of tillage, planting, cultivation, harvesting and land. Output included total production value of kidney bean. Land cost is a non-controllable variable. Therefore; a non-discretionary DEA approach was applied to estimate efficiency of kidney bean production. The average value of technical efficiency score of kidney bean production was 0.74. Results showed that 58 percent of DMUs were efficient and the rest were inefficient. In optimum condition based on the proposed model, tillage, planting, cultivation and harvesting costs is decreased by 34.48%, 11.92%, 27.87% and 7.27%, respectively, without decreasing kidney bean production level.
Given that improvement in efficiency is a major resource to economic development, this can be applied to each domestic sector of an economy. The objective of this paper is to measure technical efficiency of the Iranian Post Company across the countryâs provinces using data envelopment analysis (DEA). The ranking of technical efficiency has been calculated by using collected data on post offi...متن کامل
Measuring the efficiency of a three-stage network using data envelopment analysis approach considering dual boundary
This paper presents a method for performance evaluation, ranking and clustering based on the double-frontier view to analyze the complex networks. The model allows us to open the structure of the “black box” and can help to obtain important information about efficient and inefficient points of the system. In this paper, we consider a three-stage network, in respect to the additional desirable a...متن کامل
This paper introduces discretionary imprecise data in Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and discusses the efficiency evaluation of Decision Making Units (DMUs) with non-discretionary imprecise data. Then, suggests a method for evaluation the efficiency of DMUs with non-discretionary imprecise data. When some inputs and outputs are imprecise and non-discretionary, the DEA model becomes non-linear ...متن کامل
PURPOSE Medical-group practices are becoming increasingly common-place, with more than a third of licensed physicians in the United States currently working in this mode. While previous studies have focused on physician practices, little attention has been focused specifically on the contribution of internal organizational factors to overall physician practice efficiency. This paper develops a ...متن کامل
