Abstract
Free Replication Hull (FRH) is a special case of the CCR DEA problem in which the convexity axiom is excluded from the PPS of the CCR model and the intensity variables are restricted to the whole numbers. In this paper we propose MAJ-FRH, similar to the ranking method in data envelopment analysis proposed by Mehrabian et al. [6] to discriminate FRH-efficient DMUs.

Keywords
Data envelopment analysis; Free Replication Hull (FRH); Ranking.
