Abstract

Today, organizations and companies have found that they cannot meet the needs of their customers due to the rapid changes in their needs without a supply chain approach. In this paper, a general framework for supplier selection in the supply chain is addressed. First, a series of important measures that the consensus of experts in the supplier evaluation process is defined and then, to assess them, a few quantitative sub-criteria have been used that the scores earned by each of the evaluation criteria. Also by performing paired judgments using the hierarchical analysis process (AHP), the weights of these criteria and sub-criteria are determined and ultimately, based on the rates obtained the best supplier can be selected. A case study in Iran has been done to choose the final decision to supply each raw material by suppliers.
