An Alternative Secondary Goal Approach to Modify Cross Efficiency Evaluation in Data Envelopment Analysis



The cross efficiency evaluation is used to performance measurement of decision making units in data envelopment analysis concept. One of the most important shortcoming of this method is existing alternative optimal solution and therefore, the efficiency scores are not unique. We are going to summarize the pervious models proposed by researchers and suggest an alternative secondary goal approach to modify them to remove the shortcomings and difficulties of basic cross efficiency method. Also we tried the presented model to rank the efficient units.
