Abstract:
Supplier evaluation and selection process is an important activity in supply chain. However, for many organizations the process is a big challenge because it is a multi- criteria decision problem leading to tradeoffs. As such several criteria and methods have been devised for the process. Researchers have proposed criteria that should be considered when selecting and evaluating suppliers and the importance of each criterion in the process. Also various methods have been suggested to ease the supplier evaluation and selection process. However, the challenge has been on which criteria and method are most suitable given the supplier evaluation and selection process varies from one organization to another. Hence the focus of this review is to shed light on the most important supplier evaluation and selection criteria and method to use.
