Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present a procedure to look into the relative efficiency of university departments in order to make a good allocation of resources. This procedure uses a model based on Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). DEA measures relative efficiency of a set of alternatives (decision making units – DMUs) that consume multiple inputs and produce multiple outputs. Results of the model will help to plan development of university departments in Facultad de Ingeniería of Universidad de Buenos Aires.
