Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM), Cross-efficiency Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), Rank reversal, and Least Common Multiple (LCM)


This paper presents that the rank reversal occurs in other popular MCDM approach as well, cross-efficiency evaluation of data envelopment analysis (DEA), which has been alternative method for ranking decision making units (DMU) in the data envelopment analysis (DEA).
