Evaluation of Green Supply Chain Management Strategies Using Fuzzy AHP and TOPSIS

In this paper, the authors present a new decision making approach for group multi-criteria evaluation for green supply chain management strategies, which clubs green procurement, manufacturing, green service to customer and environmental management process with order allocation for dynamic supply chains to cope market variations. More specifically, the developed approach imitates the knowledge acquisition and manipulation in a manner similar to the decision makers who have gathered considerable knowledge and expertise in procurement domain. Fuzzy-AHP method is used first for evaluation of GSCM strategies and weights are defined which are qualitatively meaningful. Thereafter, using fuzzy TOPSIS method, the criteria application is quantitatively evaluated for order allocation among the selected strategies.
