Large discreet resource allocation: a hybrid approach based on DEA efficiency measurement.

By E. G. GOMES, J. C. C. B. S. de MELLO and L. A. MEZA


Resource allocation is one of the traditional Operations Research problems. In this paper we propose a hybrid model for resource allocation that uses Data Envelopment Analysis efficiency measures. We use Zero Sum Gains DEA models as the starting point to decrease the computational work for the step-bystep algorithm to allocate integer resources in a DEA context. Our approach is illustrated by a numerical example.200
