Arrival target setting using DEA

Share:

Description

Employs dm.dea over time to estimate the arrival of known specifications.

Usage

1
2
target.arrival.dea(xdata, ydata, date, t, rts="crs", orientation, 
                   sg="ssm", ftype="d", ncv=NULL, env=NULL, cv="convex")

Arguments

xdata

Input(s) vector (n by m)

ydata

Output(s) vector (n by s)

date

Production date (n by 1)

t

A vantage point from which the RoC is captured

rts

Returns to scale assumption
"crs" Constant RTS (default)
"vrs" Variable RTS
"irs" Increasing RTS
"drs" Decreasing RTS

orientation

Orientation of the measurement
"i" Input-orientation
"o" Output-orientation

sg

Employs second-stage optimization
"ssm" Slack-sum maximization (default)
"max" Date-sum maximization
"min" Date-sum minimization

ftype

Frontier type
"d" Dynamic frontier (default)
"s" Static frontier

ncv

Non-controllable variable index(binary) for internal NDF (1 by (m+s))

env

Environment index for external NDF (n by 1)

cv

Convexity assumption
"convex" Convexity holds (default)
"fdh" Free disposal hull (this will override rts)

Value

$eff_t

Efficiency at t

$lambda_t

Intensity vector at t

$eft_date

Effective date

$roc_avg

Average RoC

$roc_local

Local RoC

$roc_ind

Individualized RoC

$arrival_avg

Estimated arrival using roc_avg

$arrival_seg

Estimated arrival using roc_ind
