In the paper some general statistical model is presented and one of its particular version is exploited to formal estimate of the production set within the DEA and FDH methods. Properties of the FDH and DEA estimators are presented and their realizations for a finite sample are illustrated. Elements of the minimax approach are introduced and the rate of convergence is exploited to express the definition of asymptotic optimality of the estimators.
