In evaluating decision making units (DMU) by using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) technique, it happens that more than one unit got efficiency score one. In such a case there should be some criterion for ranking these DMUs. Up to now, all of DEA model could rank only extreme efficient units. In this paper the authors proposed a method for ranking extreme and non extreme efficient units.
