Supplier Selection in B2B Manufacturing Commerce Using AHP-DEA
Supplier selection is a critical and demanding task for companies that participate in B2B manufacturing e-commerce. In this paper, we propose anintegrated analytic hierarchy process- data envelopment analysis (AHP-DEA) for multiple criteria supplier selection. The proposed AHP–DEA methodology uses the AHP to determine the weights of criteria, the dataenvelopment analysis (DEA) method to determine the values of the linguistic terms. A numerical example demonstrates the application of the proposed method.
