AN INTELLIGENT DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR SUPPLIER SELECTION

R. J. Kuo, L. Y. Lee, Tung-Lai Hu

Abstract

This study intends to develop an intelligent decision support system which integrates both fuzzy analytical hierarchy process (AHP) method and fuzzy data development analysis (DEA) for assisting organizations to make the supplier selection decision. A case study on an internationally well-known auto lighting OEM company shows that the proposed method is very well suitable for practical applications.
