Abstract

Regarding to the diversified needs of domestic and global customers and various products of domestic and global competitors, importance of agility in supply chain management becomes more important. Suppliers have to provide materials and essential resources of manufacturers in a short time without any lead time.
In this research, we identified many criteria for agility in sanitation supply chain. Then with utilization of Fuzzy Delphi, ideas of experts about criteria have been gathered in 8 final criteria. Next step is devoted to prioritization of five suppliers in sanitation industry based on the final criteria with fuzzy VIKOR
