Abstract

Selecting technology suppliers is an important area that insufficient attention has been paid by researchers. Present models of technology suppliers selection are all based on both buyer's perspective as well as complete discretionary of decision making factors. The objective of this paper is to propose an innovative method for selecting technology suppliers in the presence of nondiscretionary factors from supplier's perspective. A numerical example demonstrates the application of the proposed method.
