Abstract

This research proposes a methodology for ranking decision making units by using a goal programming model.We suggest a two phases procedure. In phase 1, by using some DEA problems for each pair of units, we construct a pairwise comparison matrix. Then this matrix is utilized to rank the units via the goal programming model.
