A consensus support system for supplier selection in group decision making
This paper presents a consensus support system for effectively solving the problem of selecting suppliers involving group decision makers. An algorithm is developed for facilitating consensus building in multi-criteria group decision making. A decision support system is proposed for incorporating the proposed consensus building algorithm for evaluating and selecting appropriate suppliers in a given situation. An example is presented for demonstrating the applicability of the proposed consensus support system for solving the problem of evaluating and selecting suppliers in real situations.
