Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking Using DEA Joe Zhu Department of Management Worcester Polytechnic Institute Worcester, MA
Data Envelopment Analysis Joe Zhu 2 Outline What is DEA? New Models/Uses Two-Stage Model Context-dependent DEA Benchmarking Books
Data Envelopment Analysis Joe Zhu3 DEA & Banking The Banking industry has been the subject of DEA analysis by researchers in various areas and probably is the most heavily studied business Branches Banks across countries Source: Paradi et al. 2004
Data Envelopment Analysis Joe Zhu4 DEA Deals with multiple performance measures (inputs and outputs) in a single integrated model Includes any necessary measures related to the characterization of banking performance Identifies a “base-line” for comparisons in continuous improvement program Provides specific targets for improvement (over time)
Data Envelopment Analysis Joe Zhu5 - Regression can accommodate Multiple inputs or outputs but not both - Regression requires a functional relationship between in/outputs - Regression provides only average relationships not best practice Why DEA? DEA Best-Practice Frontier Input Output predicted average behavior
Data Envelopment Analysis Joe Zhu6 Basic DEA Benchmarking Information DEA gives Efficiency rating, or score, for each DMU Efficiency reference set: peer group Target for the inefficient DMU Information on how much inputs can be decreased or outputs increased to make the unit efficient – improving productivity & performance
Data Envelopment Analysis Joe Zhu7 DEA & Performance Improvement DEA Best-Practice Frontier Input Output K Input reduction 6 D Output augmentation D D
Data Envelopment Analysis Joe Zhu8 Benefits The establishment of the efficient frontier consisting of the best performing DMUs A projection to the efficient frontier - a guide to “what to do” for the DMU managers The identification of the peer group, a reasonable argument why it is a FAIR comparison An indication of how important a particular DMU is as a role model
Data Envelopment Analysis Joe Zhu9 How DEA works? 5 branches Three (B1, B2 & B3 are efficient – best practice frontier) B4 and B5 are inefficient Target for B4 is T1 (decrease inputs)
Data Envelopment Analysis Joe Zhu10 5 branches Three (H1, H2 & H3 are efficient – best practice frontier) H4 and H5 are inefficient Target for B4 is T2 (increase outputs) How DEA works?

Data Envelopment Analysis Joe Zhu13 What is Benchmarking?... a process of defining valid measures of performance comparison among peer units, using them to determine the relative positions of the peer units and, ultimately, establishing a standard of excellence.

Data Envelopment Analysis Joe Zhu 18 Context-dependent DEA Consumer’s choice is influenced by the context The performance of DMUs should also reflect “context”
