dea modelsDEAFrontier (TM) developed by Professor Joe Zhu is a Microsoft® Excel Add-In for solving Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) models.

There are three versions available - free, academic and commercial

A list of available DEA models is in picture at the left side of this page.


The software is developed based upon Professor Zhu's years of DEA research and teaching experience.
The software is written by Professor Zhu in an effort to minimize the possibility of mis-presentation of DEA models during coding.

DEAFroniter works under Excel XP-2016 (Windows XP-Windows 8, 8.1, and 10).

DEAFrontier uses Excel Solver as the engine for solving the DEA models. In order to run the DEAFrontier software, Excel Solver must be installed in the Excel. In Excel 2007-2016, the user should see Solver under the Data Tab. Under Excel 2007 and earlier versions, the Excel Solver Parameters dialog box has to be displaced once before the DEAFrontier software is loaded. Otherwise, the DEAFrontier software may not run.
DEAFrontier offers a version that can be used with OpenSolver (www.opensolver.org). In this case, DEAFrontier uses the COIN-OR CBC optimization engine via OpenSolver which does not set limits.

Before you buy, please visit Joe's support forum and try the free version first. 

Remember, once the software is delivered, there are no refunds!
