Abstract

Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is a method of analyzing the relative efficiency of similar type of organizations known as Decision Making Units (DMUs). In this paper, DEA model is applied to evaluate the relative technical efficiency of Cooperative Sugar Factories in Tamil nadu during the period 2012-2013. We have considered 15 sugar factories functioning in the state. The variables chosen here to characterize production units are,Sugar cane crushed, Share capital as inputs and Sugar production as output. The BCC model is Output- oriented allowing for variable returns to scale (VRS), units are ranked based on peer count summary.
