Technologies ranking is an important area that insufficient attention has been paid by researchers. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) techniques generally do not rank the efficient technologies. To rank the technologies this paper proposes an innovative approach, which is based on the super-efficiency analysis. A numerical example demonstrates the application of the proposed method.
