Title (up) Benchmarking performance indicators for banks Type
Year 2006 Publication Benchmarking: An International Journal Abbreviated Journal
Volume 13 Issue 1/2 Pages 147-159
Keywords Australia; Banks; Benchmarking; Financial reporting; Performance measures
Abstract Purpose – The aim of this paper is to construct a performance evaluation of banks with the stock market taken into consideration. Design/methodology/approach – Grey relation analysis (GRA), a concept borrowed from the study of industry and increasingly applied to commerce, is used to evaluate the relative performance of three major banks in Australia. The purpose of using GRA is to reduce the number of financial indicators by selecting representative indicators from financial statement analysis. Findings – Benchmarking performance indicators are essentially finding the representative indicator from the existing ratios most commonly used in financial analysis to assess business operational performance. The paper compares the GRA results from the financial statement analyses and shows the same result can be obtained. Research limitations/implications – This paper conducted a review of literature and five-power analysis to aggregate financial ratios appropriate for the analysis. This method may result in incompleteness in the aggregation of ratios, and requires adjustment when other issues for analysis are involved. Future research could set up a specific model for the preliminary selection of financial ratios with a new to make studies of this kind more complete. Originality/value – This paper introduced a new approach for performance evaluation – GRA. The major contribution of this paper is the use of GRA methodology to retrieve ratios most commonly used in financial analysis to tackle the problems of sample size and distribution uncertainty. This could avoid the waste of resources due to the uncertainty of relations among the ratios when using them for analysis.

Title (up) Direct and indirect measures of capacity utilization: a non-parametric analysis of US manufacturing* Type
Year 2006 Publication The Manchester School Abbreviated Journal
Volume 74 Issue 4 Pages 526-548
Keywords
Abstract We measure the capacity output of a firm as the maximum amount producible by a firm given a specific quantity of the quasi-fixed input and an overall expenditure constraint for its choice of variable inputs. We compute this indirect capacity utilization measure for the total manufacturing sector in the USA as well as for a number of disaggregated industries, for the period 1970-2001. We find considerable variation in capacity utilization rates both across industries and over years within industries. Our results suggest that the expenditure constraint was binding, especially in periods of high interest rates.

Title (up) Scholarly journal evaluation based on panel data analysis Type
Year 2009 Publication Journal of Informetrics Abbreviated Journal
Volume 3 Issue 4 Pages 312-320
Keywords Scholarly journal; MAE (Multiple Attribute Evaluation); Indicator selection; TOPSIS; Panel data analysis; Heuristic methods
Abstract This paper proposes a new method for indicator selection in panel data analysis and tests the method with relevant data on agricultural journals provided by the Institute of Scientific & Technical Information of China. An evaluation exercise by the TOPSIS method is conducted as a comparison. The result shows that panel data analysis is an effective method for indicator selection in scholarly journal evaluation; journals of different disciplines should not be evaluated with the same criteria; it is beneficial to publish all the evaluation indicators; unavailability of a few indicators has a limited influence on evaluation results; simplifying indicators can reduce costs and increase efficiency as well as accuracy of journal evaluation.

Title (up) The performance measurement of local banks in the era of the financial liberalization on Taiwan Type
Year 2004 Publication International Journal of Information and Management Sciences Abbreviated Journal
Volume 15 Issue 4 Pages 89-104
Keywords Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA); Malmquist Productivity Index; Efficiency Measurement; Distance Function
Abstract This paper analyzes the operating performance of 49 local banks in Taiwan and their corresponding productivity growth over the period 2000-2002, using the data envelopment analysis (DEA) and DEA-based Malmquist productivity index. Results from the analy- sis show that mean technical efficiency is the lowest (0.894) in 2002, reflecting the ability of resource utilization would be critical for those inefficient banks facing the competitive operating environment in Taiwan. The study also shows that the overall average productiv- ity is increasing over the 2000-2002 period. The growth is due to innovations rather than improvements in efficiency.
