Online DEA course – 2 days – 28 & 29 June 2021

Online Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) Course

Courses on Performance Measurement Using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) – Online

Details: https://dataenvelopment.com/course/
Deadline for registration: 25th June 2021

DATA ENVELOPMENT ANALYSIS COURSE:  28-29 JUNE 2021

RUNNING PARALLEL STREAMS TO FIT A WIDE RANGE OF TIME ZONES

 Aims

The aim of this course is to enable participants to understand the fundamentals of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) as a general purpose method for efficiency and productivity analysis in complex multi – output and multi- input contexts in the production of goods and services. The course will cover both the theory and the actual use of DEA. Sample real life and simulated contexts will be used.

Apart from the classical DEA models under constant and variable returns to scale, the course will cover models for assessing productivity change over time, for incorporating value judgements in DEA, for target setting and for exploiting economies of scale etc.  The course will use various areas of application drawn from the real life experience of the presenters and from the interests of the participants to illustrate approaches. The PIM DEA software (www.deasoftware.co.uk) will be used for hands on sessions by participants.

Running the course over two-days in staggered parallel streams
[ (9am to 5.30pm) or (12.30pm to 8pm) ]

As there are registrations from a wide range of time zones we will run two parallel streams staggered streams spanning from 9 am to 8pm London time. One stream will fit better time zones East and the other West of England. This means we shall be repeating some sessions as presenters so you will each have the chance to have the session closer to what would be a reasonable time for your time zone. It also means for some of the sessions all of you will be able to join in at the same time. It also means, if you can cope with the timing, you are welcome to join twice a repeat session if you so wish.

Paying to join the course.

FREE DEA Webinar, (26th May at 1pm)

Advanced data Envelopment analysis with PIM-DEA software

Ali Emrouznejad and Emmanuel Thanassoulis, Aston University

26 May 2021 at 1pm
BOOK HERE

Join Ali Emrouznejad and Emmanuel Thanassoulis from Aston University, for an introduction to Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA).

DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) is an optimization method for measuring the efficiency and productivity of decision-making units with multiple inputs/outputs. DEA has been rapidly extended as a performance management tool, identifying the scope for scale economies, company and industry level productivity change over time, identifying targets and benchmark units, incorporating value judgments in assessments of performance, dealing with uncertainty in data and much more.  

In this webinar, they will share top performance measurement tips using advanced DEA models and will introduce features of the Performance Improvement Management Software (PIM-DEA).

This webinar is designed for academics and public and private sector professionals who are interested in Data Envelopment Analysis.  To access the webinar you will be sent a link to our events platform before the event.    BOOK HERE

Ali Emrouznejad will provide an introduction to DEA, before Emmanuel Thanassoulis and Srini Parthasarathy speak about DEA in regulation. The session will finish with a demonstration of how PIM-DEA software can be applied in regulation and a Q&A session.

Abstract:

The use of benchmarking in regulation with special reference to DEA

Utility companies provide services like water, energy and telecommunications etc. They have virtual monopoly power relative to clients and are therefore regulated to simulate market conditions. There is a prevailing view that markets either do not exist or are not competitive enough in the case of utilities. In essence, the Regulator is there to protect the consumer from excessive costs for the services provided by utilities.

The need for utilities to make large capital-intensive infrastructure investments, coupled with the absence of substitutes and inelastic demand, tends to generate natural monopolies. Given this market structure, governments have set up regulatory systems to control prices and incentivise investment, continuity of supply and improvement in the quality of service. The regulatory systems have largely developed in tandem with the privatisation of previously publicly owned and managed utilities such as gas, electricity, water and telecommunications.

This talk will give an overview of benchmarking and its purpose in the regulation of utilities in Europe and the UK. It will then outline how DEA has been integrated into Regulatory systems and offer insight into how DEA can be extended to improve the incentives within regulation.
