Abstract: 

Total Factor Productivity is a measure for calculating the level of optimality that uses inputs to produce outputs and it shows that how the predefined goals are achieved. Assessing the trend of productivity changes leads to some information about the efficiency, technology and technical knowledge in the firm. This information can be used to improve the performance of different parts of the firm and makes a plan for future development and progress.

In the four year program of development, all of the firms have to determine the rate of total factor productivity growth in their production and make a strategic plan to improve their performance.
This paper investigates Total Factor Productivity Growth (TFPG) using DEA-based Malmquist productivity index. In this paper, Malmquist index is broken down into efficiency changes. And technological changes the case study evaluates productivity growth and finds out the factors affecting productivity which are critical on the four major and important oil fields that are in the Lavan oil sector which is administered by Iranian Offshore Oil Company (IOOC). The study shows that understanding the important factors is essential for increasing productivity and performance improvement.
