AHP Method for Supplier Evaluation Index System Modeling and Evaluation Research
The choice of supplier is vital for corporations. There are many kinds of index to measure suppliers. Firstly, this paper establish a structure-model of evaluation index system for supplier according to reachability matrix of index factor division, and then select the best supplier of auto-tire industries by AHP and normalization method. This method can avoid the current single-evaluation index system of supplier which depends too much on qualitative defects, and measure suppliers comprehensively and scientifically.
