Benchmarking the Turkish Apparel Retail Industry Through Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and Data Visualization

October 2, 2017


Efficiency vs. Product Types

This paper presents a benchmarking study of the Turkish apparel retailing industry. We have applied the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) methodology to determine the efficiencies of the companies in the industry. In the DEA model the number of stores, number of corners, total sales area and number of employees were included as inputs and annual sales revenue was included as the output. The efficiency scores obtained through DEA were visualized for gaining insights about the industry and revealing guidelines that can aid in strategic decision making.
