Abstract: Data Envelopment Analysis is used to determine the relative efficiency of Decision Making Units as the ratio of weighted sum of outputs by weighted sum of inputs. To accomplish the purpose, a DEA model calculates the weights of inputs and outputs of each DMU individually so that the highest efficiency can be estimated. Thus, the present study suggests an innovative method using a common set of weights leading to solving a linear programming problem. The method determines the efficiency score of all DMUs and rank them too. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2012
