Abstract : Via semi-infinite programing, Data Envelopment Analysis is extended to models with a (possibly) infinite number of Decision-Making Units in order to provide a simpler analytic structural base for forthcoming studies of statistical aspects. Relations with usual multicriteria problems are brought forth. In this paper, the only model considered is extension of phase one of the Charnes, Cooper, Thrall development of the CCR ratio model. Keywords: Multicriteria programming; Semi-finite programming; Pareto-Koopmans optimality.
