Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) approach for selecting stationery suppliers in selected universities in Benin City

Dickson E.A. Omorogbe, Wilfred A. Iguodala


Supplier Selection is a multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) Problem. It requires the evaluation of both qualitative and quantitative factors. Selecting the best supplier among several alternatives is an enormous task for decision makers (DMs) and procurement managers (PMs). Since no single supplier can excel in all the attributes required by DMs. this paper adopted both the quantitative and qualitative factors in the selection process. Also, this paper applied the AHP approach in the selection of stationery suppliers using real life data from selected universities in Benin City.
