PEREZ-DOMINGUEZ, Luis; ALVARADO-INIESTA, Alejandro; RODRIGUEZ-BORBON, Iván  and  VERGARA-VILLEGAS, Osslan. Intuitionistic fuzzy MOORA for supplier selection. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2015, vol.82, n.191, pp.34-41. ISSN 0012-7353.

The supplier selection is a critical activity within the administration of the supply chain. It is considered a complex problem given that it involves different aspects such as the alternatives to evaluate, the multiple criteria involved as well as the group of decision makers with different opinions. In this sense, the literature reports several methods to help in this difficult activity of selecting the best supplier. However, there are still some gaps in these methods; therefore, it is imperative to further develop research. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to report a hybrid method between MOORA and intuitionistic fuzzy sets for the selection of suppliers with a focus on multi-criteria and multi-group environment. The importance of decision makers, criteria and alternatives are evaluated in terms of intuitionistic fuzzy sets. Then, MOORA is used in order to determine the best supplier. An experimental case is developed in order to explain the proposed method in detail and to demonstrate its practicality and effectiveness.
