Abstract

 

In this study we address the measurement of supplier efficiencies in a retail company. For that purpose, we suggest a two stage approach which employs both the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and the Analytical Hierarchical Process (AHP) methods. In the first stage, we measure the efficiency of the suppliers with DEA method. Next, in the second stage, we use the AHP method to verify the results obtained with the first stage. As an illustrative example, we have applied the proposed approach in the supplier selection process of a retail company. We have observed that the results obtained by both DEA and AHP methods are consistent.
