—This study used a relational two-stage data
envelopment analysis (DEA) to evaluate the efficiency of 23 food
and beverage companies in Thailand in 2011. The whole
production process of the companies can be divided into two
sub-processes for analyzing the efficiency differences:
production achievement and profit generation. The conclusion
shows that the low efficiency score of the profit generation
process leads to the low overall efficiency score of the companies.
