Today, the need to produce more with fewer resources is a inescapable objective, and the university is aware of this. The demand for continuous improvement in effectiveness, efficiency and economy, make it complex for the university’s heterogeneous and multiple activities; like any economic entity, the university requires internal information for benchmarking and supporting decision making, this is where the management information models take a role; but there has been more concern with the importance of determining the cost or design of the models, so that the true essence of the models is to obtain relevant, reliable and timely information that is useful to support the management of government bodies. In this sense, our doctoral thesis project is aims to be the proposal of a model that considers four approaches: cost, quality, time and flexibility; with it and without any institutional policy decision, we sought to estimate the value creation of the management entities in heterogeneous production from two complementary approaches: parametric and non-parametric, using a considerable disaggregation level in the proposed model.
