A New Non-radial Network DEA Model for Evaluating Performance Supply Chain


Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is a mathematic technique for measuring the efficiency of Decision Making Units (DMUs) with multiple inputs and outputs. The evaluation of performance is the most important duty in supply chain management and inform of relevant units’ performance. In regard to complex structure which exist in some supply chains, must define the scale of performance for it so as to consider its internal structure for improvement, control and review of performance of respected chain. Then the usage of network DEA models will be very effect. Therefore, this paper states the evaluation of supply chain’ performance regard to all members of chain under non-radial model and using procedure of SBM model with three central, decentral and mix mechanisms. Finally through example, it is shown that the usage of this model leads to the evaluation very exactly.
