Abstract : This critique discusses the development, limitations, and advantages of an efficiency measurement methodology called Constrained Facet Analysis (CFA). CFA is a variant of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) which evolved in response to limitations in the application of DEA experienced by the Educational Productivity Council at The University of Texas at Austin. However, CFA has its own inherent limitations which analysts need to be aware of when applying CFA. It is concluded that application of CFA should be withheld until CFA is further developed and tested.
