Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and Multiple Objective Linear Programming (MOLP) are widely used for performance assessment in organizations. Although DEA and MOLP are similar in structure, DEA is used to assess and analyze past performance and MOLP is used to predict future performance. Several equivalence models between output-oriented DEA models and MOLP models have been proposed in the literature. However these models are not applicable to performance evaluation problems with undesirable outputs. We propose an interactive method for solving output-oriented DEA models with undesirable outputs. We show that the output-oriented BCC model of Seiford and Zhu [47] can be equivalently stated as the maximization of the minimum of several objectives over the production possibility set, which in turn is a scalarization of a multi-objective linear program. We then employ the well-known Zionts-Wallenius procedure to solve the multi-objective optimization problem. We present an example to demonstrate the applicability of the proposed method and exhibit the efficacy of the procedures and algorithms.
