Training session on “Performance Analysis” by Prof. Thomas Vallée from University of Nantes will be held on 4th December 2018 at Royal University of Law and Economics (RULE), Room G24 (new building, first floor, near the cafeteria) from 9am – 4pm.
The course is designed to give relevant tools for conducting performance analysis. The course covers methods and applications related to the measurement analysis of productive efficiency. The course will also show how to measure performance with the DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) methodology, and will discuss specific examples dealing with environmental and maritime issues.
The training method will be a combination of lectures, discussions, hands on exercises, and numerical applications will be done with Excel.
Training objectives are:
· Understand benchmarking concept
· Understand productivity concept with multiple inputs and multiple outputs
· Analyze Environmental Performance issues
· Compare Efficiency of ASEAN Ports
· Develop Excel and R numerical solutions
Basic Knowledge Requirements:
Basic Microeconomics concepts (Profit function, Cost function, Productivity), and, if possible,
some mathematical knowledge on Linear Programming Methods (optional).
After the training session, participants will acquire ability to conduct benchmarking with nonparametric method, ability to compare performances of some Decision Maker Units (like environmental performances of firms, or production performances of Ports).
