While conventional data envelopment analysis models set targets separately for each decision making unit, centralized recourse allocation model is presented where there is a centralized decision maker that supervises all the operating units. Optimizing of total input consumption and total output production is the main aim of this model. In this paper, firstly the centralized output production model is presented that optimizing total output production. Then, a model is introduced which is a combination of centralized input allocation and centralized output production models. Some numerical examples of the proposed models and their results are presented, as well.
