Benchmarking Sustainable Manufacturing: A DEA-Based Method and Application

Jun-Der Leu, Wen-Hsien Tsai, Mei-Niang Fan, Sophia Chuang
2020 Energies  
Since the value-added process of a manufacturing company encompasses both desirable and undesirable outputs, in this study we use a data envelopment analysis-based model to measure performance sustainability  ...  In it, energy, water, and manpower are considered as input resources, meanwhile CO2 emissions, wasted water, chemical compounds, and laborers' injuries are considered as bad outputs.  ...  Acknowledgments: In addition, the authors would like to thank Julia Gauntley, a former Corporate Regional HSE&S Manager of a multinational chemical company, for her professional guidance.  ...

Integrating multiple criteria decision analysis and production theory for performance evaluation : Framework and review

Harald Dyckhoff, Rainer Souren
2022 European journal of operational research : EJOR 297(3)  
Though, many methods have in common that the results to be assessed are mainly determined by the inputs and outputs of the activities which are to be evaluated.  ...  Accounting, life cycle assessment (LCA) and data envelopment analysis (DEA) are examples of various research areas that independently develop and apply diverse methodologies to evaluate performance.  ...  In an overview of "DEA models with undesirable inputs, intermediates, and outputs", Zhou & Liu (2015) define desirable outputs as "what the decision maker hopes to produce as much as possible" (p. 417  ...

Energy-saving and emission-abatement potential of Chinese coal-fired power enterprise: A non-parametric analysis

Chu Wei, Andreas Löschel, Bing Liu
2015 Energy Economics  
State-owned enterprises (SOE) are not significantly different in 2008 from 2004, but perform better than their non-SOE counterparts in 2008.  ...  This change in performance for large enterprises and SOE might be driven by the "top-1000 Enterprise Energy Conservation Action" that was implemented in 2006.  ...  Xie et al. (2012) use a two-stage network DEA model to evaluate the provincial environmental performance in China and explore the linkage between the environmental efficiency and generation forms.  ...

The Effects of Ecological Policy of Kyrgyzstan Based on Data Envelope Analysis

Yun Hao, Degang Yang, Jingjing Yin, Xi Chen, Anming Bao, Miao Wu, Xiaoyun Zhang
2019 Sustainability  
The model results can reflect comprehensive effects of ecological policy in social, economic, and ecological aspects.  ...  The aim of this study was two-fold. First, we characterized the eco-policy system structure of Kyrgyzstan in different stages.  ...  This is consistent with the DEA method requirements for input and output indicators.  ...

Benchmarking and incentive regulation of quality of service: an application to the UK electricity distribution networks

Dimitrios Giannakis, Tooraj Jamasb, Michael Pollitt
2005 Energy Policy  
Quality of service has emerged as an important issue in post-reform regulation of electricity distribution networks.  ...  We find that cost efficient firms do not necessarily exhibit high service quality and that efficiency scores of cost-only models do not show high correlation with those of quality-based models.  ...  In an input-oriented DEA model, this can be interpreted as that a firm can reduce the undesirable output attributes and cost (as an ordinary) input while maintaining a given level of ordinary outputs.  ...

Does Global Value Chain Embeddedness Matter for the Green Innovation Value Chain?

Dianxi Hu, Jianling Jiao, Chuxi Chen, Renqiao Xiao, Yunshu Tang
2022 Frontiers in Environmental Science  
Our conclusions are conducive to identifying the weak links in green innovation processes and provide novel empirical evidence for formulating sustainable development countermeasures in an open economy  ...  The KPWW method and the super-efficiency network SBM-DEA model (NSBM-S) are used to measure the GVC embeddedness index and GIVC efficiency, respectively.  ...  However, the early DEA model regarded the decision-making unit (DMU) as a "black box" of input and output, and it was not clear how the input of R&D resources was transformed into intermediate and final  ...

A Resource Allocation Model to Support Effcient Air Quality Management in South Africa

Jan Walters Kruger, Urishanie Govender
2009 Social Science Research Network  
This study can therefore claim to be an accurate reflection of input activities and output performance of the air quality units in South Africa.  ...  The measurement of efficiency generally required: (a) an estimation of input variables; (b) an estimation of output variables and (c) a comparison between the two.  ...  Therefore, it serves as a model for clarifying the critical inputs that are required for AQOs to complete their mandated outputs successfully and to actually perform efficiently.  ...
