Abstract


The paper presents a coherent methodology of a multiple criteria evaluation of
suppliers in clothing industry covering: definition of a set of variants – fabric
suppliers, definition of a consistent family of criteria that allows for their
comprehensive evaluation, modeling of decision maker’s (DM’s) preferences
(including: the definition of the importance of criteria and the DM’s sensitivity
towards changes of criteria values), computational experiments resulting in the final
ranking of suppliers and finally the selection of the most desired supplier.
The analysis of 5 suppliers namely fabric producers, operating on the Polish
market, whose factories are located in Poland, have been taken into consideration.
Also in the family of criteria evaluating the cooperating units (important for the DM),
9 measures have been taken into account. These have included, among others: product
price/cost and payment conditions, timeliness of delivery/ supplier, reliability of
delivery/ supplier, cost of delivery, accessibility of supplier. In the computational
phase a selected MCDM/A ranking methods (especially Electre III/IV and AHP
methods) have been applied.


Key words: Suppliers selection problem, Ranking of suppliers, Multiple Criteria
Decision Making/ Aiding (MCDM/A), Electre III/IV method, AHP method
