About PIM-DEA software

PIM-DEAsoft V3:

  • Is the latest up to date DEA software from academics with decades experience in teaching, researching and applying DEA;
  • Has enhanced functionality reflecting the cumulative feedback from our users since the 1980s;
  • Contains up-to-date DEA models reflecting the latest developments in DEA research from the developers who are research active in the field;
  • Can assess productivity change over time;
  • Can deliver alternative decompositions of productivity change for variable and constant returns to scale; capturing efficiency change, scale efficiency change and boundary shift components;
  • Can compute allocative efficiency, cost efficiency, scale efficiency and identify the nature of returns to scale applicable at each unit;
  • Can provide estimates of confidence intervals on DEA efficiencies and bias correction factors using bootstrapping;

    Offers the facility for incorporating value judgments or other restrictions within DEA assessments;

  • Offers the facility for identifying performance targets reflecting varying policies;
  • Offers the facility to assess super-efficiencies of units and set in motion iterative automatic removal of units with super-efficiencies above a user-specified threshold;
  • Features graphical output facilities for illustrating how DEA works and for presenting results;

    Has extensive data handling facilities for very large data sets (e.g. automatic selection of subsets of units by category for batch runs);

  • Permits import and export of data to Excel and the export of results to Excel;
  • Computes efficiencies under constant, non constant, non increasing and non decreasing returns to scale and it produces Most Productive Scale Size information.
