An interactive MOLP procedure for the extension of DEA to effectiveness analysis. (English) Zbl 0655.90042

This paper presents the development of an interactive multiobjective linear programming technique in order to generate a set of efficient points. Here an input-output model is considered and a point is said to be efficient iff it cannot reduce any of its inputs and still generate the same outputs. Using a primal-dual consideration (in a similar way as it was done by R. E. Steuer, “Multiple criteria optimization theory: Computation and application”, Wiley & Sons, New York 1986) the mathematical background is described.
