— The current economic development cannot simply rely on manpower and capital investment, because it had turned into new normal trends which depend on the overall increase in total factor productivity. Transportation equipment manufacturing industry as the basis of the national economy tries to improve its total factor productivity in order to lead industries to upgrade. Applying Malmquist-DEA model and 2005-2013 periods’ development data to analyze efficiency variance from time dynamic dimension, the regional dimension and ownership organization dimension, points out that creative destruction environments and technological progress, technical efficiency improvement are the main ways to enhance the industry. This is undoubtedly an important reference for the manufacturing sectors when they had to enhance overall performance.
