An Optimization Model Based on Data Envelopment Analysis: Empirical Study From the Postal Industry

In this paper the authors propose an optimization model for solving a combinatorial problem of limited resources. The optimization is performed based on a technical efficiency measurement by using data envelopment analysis (DEA). The model provides two parallel processes. The first is related to the classification of decision making units (DMU) depending on the CCR and BCC scores. The second treats the stability of the returns to scale (RTS) classifications. The model has been tested and verified through a research carried out on the sample of 27 DMUs which were public postal operators (PPOs) from selected European states.
