Research on the Methods of Suppliers Selection in the Context of E-Commerce
The development of e-commerce has had a significant influence on the index system, methods and process of supplier selection for companies. By considering comprehensively the features of supplier selection in the e-commerce environment as well as the traditional index system, the indices for supplier selection can be determined as supplier flexibility, supplier credit, product quality, informatization degree and supply ability.Based on intuitionistic language aggregation operators, the intuitionistic language sets are applied for selecting and evaluating suppliers, and the scientific nature of this decision-making process of selection of suppliers is then verified through empirical studies. It is necessary to further enrich and improve the index system and methods of supplier selection in the future according to features of companies from different industries and with different background.
