Yuan Ekananda Muhammad Adikara, Sri Herianingrum

Abstract

This study aims at analyzing the efficiency of steel companies in the United States and outside the United States to measure their comparative strengths to confront the global trade war based on Data Envelopment Analysis. Quantitative approach was employed by means of Data Envelopment Analysis by the assumption of Variable Return to Scale. The respondents were four US based steel companies and non-US based steel companies. Intermediation approach was used in measuring the inputs and outputs. Input variables comprised the assets and labor cost; while the Output variables consisted of operational profit. This study has found that no steel company was efficient during the observation period. It has been revealed that there was significant difference in efficiency performance between US based steel companies and Non-US based steel companies.
