  While the conventional Farrell-Färe approach to efficiency measurement can identify the most inefficient firms, it fails to consider the efficiency of a group of firms thoroughly. This paper introduces efficiency measures that can be used to find the efficiency of a group of firms and pinpoint whether the group inefficiency is due to inefficiency inside or outside Cited by: of reserves to improve production efficiency. It contributes to the economic use of labor resources, identifying and implementing best practices, organization of work, new equipment and technology, to prevent waste, etc. Problem area and research question Productivity is one of the keys to financial success of the enterprise.

Productivity measurement and analysis are the main topics addressed in this book, which brings together contributions presented and discussed in two international workshops organized by the Statistics Directorate and the Directorate for Science, . A Guide to Productivity Measurement 5 WHY MEASURE? 3HOW TO MEASURE Productivity is the relationship between the quantity of output and the quantity of input used to generate that output. It is basically a measure of the effectiveness and efficiency of your organisation in generating output with the resources Size: KB.

lays the theoretical foundation for the measurement of productive efficiency. It provides definitions of alternative notions of productive efficiency, and it provides corresponding measures of efficiency.

Section offers a brief introduction to alternative techniques that have been developed to quantify inefficiency Size: KB. Productive efficiency (or production efficiency) is a situation in which the economy or an economic system (e.g., a firm, a bank, a hospital, an industry, a country, etc.) could not produce any more of one good without sacrificing production of another good and without improving the production technology.

In other words, productive efficiency occurs when a good or a service is produced. In this book, we are concerned with measuring and explaining producer performance. We view performance as a function of the state of technology and economic efficiency. the former defines a frontier relation between inputs and outputs; the latter incorporates waste and misallocation relative to this frontier.
