Data envelopment analysis (DEA) is one of the most powerful tools for ranking decision making units (DMUs). In this paper, we present a new perspective for ranking DMUs under a DEA peer-evaluation framework. We exploit the property of multiple weighting schemes generated over the cross evaluation process in developing a methodology that yields not only robust ranking patterns but also more realistic sets of weights for the DMUs. The robustness of the proposed methodology is evaluated using OWA combinations involving different minimax disparity models and different levels of optimism of the decision maker. We show that discrimination is boosted at each stage of the decision process. As an illustration, our approach is applied for ranking a sample of baseball players.
