Data envelopment analysis (DEA) is a useful mathematical tool for evaluating the performance of production units and ranking their relative efficiency. In many real-world applications, production units belong to several separate groups and also consist of several sub-units. In this paper, we introduce a new method of evaluating group efficiency of two-stage production systems. To this end, some new DEA models are introduced for evaluating and ranking groups of production systems based on the average and weakest group performance criteria. Some numerical examples, including an empirical application in the banking industry, are also provided for illustration.
