Multicriteria Decision Making, Supplier Selection, Automotive Industry



The main objective of this study is to optimize the way of supplier selection for any kind of automobile industry of Pakistan. This study is conducted through a decision support system using analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP), which is basically a multi criteria decision making technique more over it carries out a sensitive analysis to evaluate the flexibility of supplier selection decision. This research begins with identification of the criteria (service, price, delivery and price), it ranks the criteria depending on expert’s opinion and experts must be of managerial level they might be engineers, supervisors or head of the department. This technique finally evaluates the flexibility of the decision by performing sensitive analysis using software of expert’s choice. Once the sensitivity analysis is successfully performed then it provides the confidence to decision maker regarding consistency of flexibility throughout the process. Moreover it also suggests the impact of changing in criteria over supplier ranking.
