This study applies the fuzzy set theory to evaluate the vendor selection decision. Applying Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) in obtaining criteria weights and applied Technique for Order Performance by Similarity to Idea Solution (TOPSIS) for obtaining final ranking of vendors. The usefulness of this model is explained through an empirical study for vendor selection.
