The article points out some disadvantages of traditional (based on DEA methodology) procedure of estimating credit capacity which consists in solving CCR and BCC models and estimating a discriminant function where efficiency indicator is a dependent variable and inputs and outputs used in DEA models are independent variables. Since the main problems with this procedure are connected with discriminant function, the author suggests a procedure of credit capacity estimation which uses no discriminant function. The new method is based on DEA methodology, particularly on super-efficiency DEA models (SE-DEA models) with permitted benchmarks. Comparing the credit capacity indicator (here: ranking indicator) with cut-off points enables objects classification.
