This proceedings set contains 85 selected full papers presentedat the 3rd International Conference on Modelling, Computation and Optimization in Information Systems and Management Sciences - MCO 2015, held on May 11–13, 2015 at Lorraine University, France. The present part II of the 2 volume set includes articles devoted to Data analysis and Data mining, Heuristic / Meta heuristic methods for operational research applications, Optimization applied to surveillance and threat detection, Maintenance and Scheduling, Post Crises banking and eco-finance modelling, Transportation, as well as Technologies and methods for multi-stakeholder decision analysis in public settings.
Data Envelopment Analysis is not very well applicable when a sample consists of firms operating under drastically different conditions. We offer a new method of efficiency estimation on heterogeneous samples based on a sequential exclusion of alternatives and standard DEA approach. We show a connection between efficiency scores obtained via standard DEA model and the ones obtained via our algorithm. We also illustrate our model by evaluating 28 Russian universities and compare the results obtained by two techniques.
