This paper investigated the efficiency of automobile firms by using several non-parametric approaches. First, using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), the paper has investigated the critical factors that determine the relative efficiency of management performance in automobile companies. Second, we examined how the firm size impact on the difference of this efficiency by using Kruskl-Wallis Test. Third, by using Mann-whitney test, we also investigated the difference of the efficiency accoss existence of technological innovation activity. Finally, the paper explored the relationship between technological innovation and management efficiency by using logistic regression model. The findings of this study provided practical information for inefficient automobile firms to find benchmarking firms and strategic position to improve their efficiency. The result also provided theoretical and methodological implications for those who explore factors affecting management efficiencies. Future research directions with the limitation of the study are discussed.
