The outcomes from the previous chapters provide useful information from the literature of operations research and economics on measuring the performance of a set of homogenous firms with multiple input factors and multiple output factors as well as ranking and benchmarking firms. If firms are not homogenous, the situation is the same as when each factor has a different unit of measurement from one firm to another, and therefore, no meaningful discrimination can be expressed, unless the simple conditions of discrimination, which are represented in Sect. 2.3, are satisfied. In this chapter, the concepts introduced in the previous chapters are adapted with the literature and the philosophical background is discussed.
