methodParameters

Description:

There is one possible method parameter – “type”. It indicates model formulation for cross efficiency evaluation – aggressive or benevolent.

GUI information:

  • Parameter values can be defined via the GUI or the XMCDA file, by default via GUI.
  • Name: type
    • Type: drop-down list
    • Possible values:
      • Aggressive (XMCDA label : aggressive) (default)
      • Benevolent (XMCDA label : benevolent)
