This paper applies technological forecasting using data envelopment analysis (TFDEA) to computer display projector (CDP) technology. The objective is to analyze the technological change CDP products. The results indicate that the rate of technological change for CDP technology is accelerating, which is consistent with an understanding of the industry. A methodological issue of infeasibility is described and methods for dealing with it are presented. Future work may extend to examine over additional years and product releases.
