What do you mean with "own models"? Have you developed new theoretical
models that are not (yet) available in current software package?

Various types of Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) can be performed
by the "frontier" package [1,2] and there are (at least) three R
packages for Data Envelopment Analysis: DEA [3], FEAR [4] (academic
use without payments but NOT open source :-( ), and one of my
colleagues has an unpublished package for DEA (I can ask him to send
it to you).
