Yes, this can be done in SHAZAM with some straightforward coding. A good example of using Stochastic Frontier Analysis with various distance functions comparing technical efficiencies of different firms may be found in:

O`Donnell, C. J., D. S. P. Rao and G. E. Battese (2008). "Metafrontier Frameworks for the Study of Firm-level Efficiencies and Technology Ratios." Empirical Economics 34(2): 231-255.

SHAZAM code for performing this may be found in the appendix.
