In data envelopment analysis, methods for constructing sections of the frontier have been recently proposed to visualize the production possibility set. The aim of this paper is to develop, prove and test the methods for the visualization of production possibility sets using parallel computations. In this paper, a general scheme of the algorithms for constructing sections (visualization) of production possibility set is proposed. In fact, the algorithm breaks the original large-scale problems into parallel threads, working independently, then the piecewise solution is combined into a global solution. An algorithm for constructing a generalized production function is described in detail.
