Abstract

Supply chain management has already become the most important part of promoting the competitive strength of the enterprises, and the most critical component is the selection of supplier. The traditional economic model is unsuitable to the technique aspect and the non-quantifiable factors. Not only there was much to concern about the selection factors, but also the uncertainty of information, qualitative, and quantitative data will make it difficult to select the supplier. Therefore, this paper takes the receiver module of the key component of the handheld global position system (GPS) as an example. It uses the fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (FAHP) to construct the multi-attribute decision making model, for fitting the fuzzy identity of the human thinking. That way, the selection of supplier would be more objective, and also contribute an example for enterprise's decision.
