AHPSort for supplier base reduction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is a useful method but it is not often applied for supplier selection, especially when the number of candidates is high. Therefore, AHP would not be able to solve supplier base reduction problems. This paper presents AHPSort, a new variant of the AHP, used for sorting alternatives. A real case study confirming or dismissing suppliers is used to evaluate our approach. However useful, two conditions are missing for a full adoption by the studied company: the explanation of the mathematics behind the method and the implementation in an integrated procurement system.
