Research on Building Engineering Materials Supplier Selection Based on ANP Method


Article Preview

It is an inevitable problem that how to select appropriate partner in case of constructing supply chain network taking contractor or owner as main body in the building engineering construction. Based on reference of existing research results of supplier evaluation index system and combining with main evaluation index of building construction, the paper built evaluation index system of building engineering materials supplier and introduced ANP that combining qualitative and quantitative method to select optimal supplier. Supplier selection example of some large scale building material supplier selection based on Super Decision verifies the feasibility of ANP selection method proposed in the paper.
