11). 1 (CCR-Efiiciency) 1. DMUo is CCR-efficient if 9* = 1 and there exists at least one optimal {v*,u*), with V* > 0 and u* > 0. 2. Otherwise, DMUo is CCR-inefficient. BASIC CCR MODEL 25 Thus, CCR-inefRciency means that either (i) 9* < 1 or (M) 6* = 1 and at least one element of {v*,u*) is zero for every optimal solution of (LPo). 2, and a detailed description of CCR-efficiency will be given in Chapter 3. Now we observe the case where DMUo has 9* < 1 (CCR-inefiicient). 9) for which the weight {v*,u*) produces equahty between the left and right hand sides since, otherwise, 9* could be enlarged.
