Increasing the discrimination power the of data envelopment analysis method and choosing appropriate weights is one of the important issues in data envelopment analysis. One of the ways to overcome this problem is to use multi-objective data coverage analysis. In multi-objective problems, the goal of the objective functions is usually contradictory to each other, so it is not possible to find an optimal solution for all the objective functions simultaneously. In this article, we use the ideal programming approach to solve the problem of multi-criteria data envelopment analysis, and then we compare the presented method with previous methods in the framework of preferential voting.
