Abstract

Having good suppliers not only means having quality supplies, it also means having low costs. Suppliers play a fundamental role in the production process from the acquisition of raw materials and even in the design and innovation of products. After an analysis of the literature related to the objective of the research, this article proposes a methodology for the analysis and selection of suppliers in order to improve the performance of the supply chain and also to be able to face the diversity and complexity of the situations that may arise in the purchasing process. The article provides professionals with flexibility and effectiveness in the selection of suppliers and their selection process, and with a better understanding of their future purchasing strategies. The fundamental findings of this research focus specifically on the determination and analysis of the main methods quantitative used in the selection of the supplier. The proposed methodology is applied in a company in the automotive sector and there is a good expectation of the methodology since in the preliminary investigations satisfactory results have been obtained.
