Recent years have seen a great deal of research in the area of relative efficiency measurement in which the 'alternatives' being compared use a number of inputs to generate multiple outputs. This paper investigates the possibility of employing such techniques to assist with multi-attribute selection on the grounds that outputs may be viewed as criteria to be maximized and inputs as criteria to be minimized. The paper aims to find a bridge linking the fields of multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) and efficiency analysis.
