DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A FUZZY EXPERT DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR VENDOR SELECTION - Case Study in OIEC IRAN(Oil Industerial Engineering and Construction)

Maryam Ramezani, G. A. Montazer

Abstract

Supplier selection and evaluation is a complicated multi objective process with many uncertain factors. Sealed bid evaluation is the most common approach for supplier selection purpose in Iran. In this paper, a fuzzy expert decision support system is developed for solving the vendor selection problem with multiple objectives, in which some of the parameters are fuzzy in nature. Basic important factors considered for supplier selection are price, quality and delivery time. The designed system has been designed and implemented and evaluated in a lead famous company and the results are discussed.
