During the past decade, applying nonparametric operation research problems such as Data Envelopment Analysis(DEA) has received significant consideration among researchers. In this paper, a new DEA-based SBM-FDH model is introduced. Finally, productivity evaluation for banking systems in Malmquist Productivity Index (MPI) based on the proposed model has been compared with Slack Based Measurement (SBM) and Free Disposal Hull (FDH). The obtained results confirm the high performance of the proposed model in comparison to the other models used in this paper.
