Supplier Selection Decisions: A Fuzzy Logic Model Based on Quality Aspects of Delivery
This paper presents a decision making model to address uncertainty in requirement planning. The model proposes a DSS to evaluate the quality of suppliers where quality is categorized into three primary areas dealing with delivery specifics, front office quality, and support specific quality. The application of the model is restricted to delivery specifics with two quality criteria illustrated of on-time delivery and accuracy of shipping. Results of the model provide ranking of suppliers based on belief that each supplier can provide average or greater performance. Extension of the model will determine overall fuzzy-set based rankings based upon all considered quality parameters.
