Abstract


Supplier selection decision is vital problem in supply chain management, which involving multiple objectives. In this paper, a formulation of fuzzy multi-choice goal programming (FMCGP) is presented after calculate the closeness confections of each supplier using fuzzy TOPSIS (Techniques for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution). The proposed approach improves the applicability of goal programming in real world situations and provides useful insight about the solution of a new class of problems. To demonstrate the usefulness of the proposed method, a case study is presented and the proposed approach obtains a better solution than Fuzzy Goal Programming (FGP).
