The product and its services in cheaper, better, and faster ways than other competitors. The key to increase the performance of the processes lies in the ability of the company in collaboration with its business partners (suppliers). The suppliers are such a crucial point in supporting the good performance of the company. With involvement from the suppliers, the company will get the big profit or suffocate because of its loss. So the company must choose the good criteria from the suppliers to support the good performance for the company. In choosing the criteria of suppliers, the company is using Analytical Hierarchy Process to distribute the criteria and its sub criteria. There are 3 criteria, 9 sub criteria in choosing the best supplier from five potential suppliers. The explanation about the criteria and sub criteria is as follow:

  1. The ability to be able to give discount for ordering a certain amount (P1)

The supplier can give discount to company so the company is allowed to get profit twice from usual transaction.

b. Price stability to the news in the world (P2)

The stability is all about the rate of dollars exchange and the oil price. The given price of raw materials from suppliers must not be unstable to economic news in the world.

c. The ability to give free shipping for ordering a certain amount (P3)

The supplier can give free shipping to company so the company will have less


2. Delivery (D)

  1. Delivery on time (D1)

Supplier can fulfill the orders of raw material according to the time that both supplier and company’s deal.

b. Accuracy quantity of delivery (D2)

Supplier shall be able to ensure that the number of ordered product (raw material) is always appropriate to ordered specification.

c. Delivery lead time (D3)

This sub criteria describes the ability of supplier in giving a promising time to deliver the product to company.

3. Quality (Q)

  1. The ability of supplier to receive a change of order from company (Q1)

Supplier shall be able to accept a change of quantity order from the company in specific time.

  1. In this case, you are an expert in procurement process of a fashion company named, so you are asked to give the rating for each matrix. From this problem, you must determine the best supplier from three potential suppliers using Analytical Hierarchy Process for the company. Calculate the AHP in Excel format and after getting the result, you must give the rank from 1 to 3 so the company can know which supplier is the best or the worst.

  2. Make sure that you check the consistency for each criteria and sub criteria because inconsistency can undermine your calculation toward the
  3. Please make it into tidy format so the company will see the calculation as clear as

After you have chosen the best supplier for company, the company wants to deliver the product from warehouse (Petojo) to the several distributors around Jakarta. In the delivering process, the company chooses expeditor A. The expeditor must deliver the product to distributor with using optimal route so it will save the company’s cost. To get the optimal route, the company gives the data of actual shipment from expeditor A to each distributor:

Table 1. Actual Data of Shipment Size from Expeditor A to Each Distributor







Expeditor A

Mall Central Park



Expeditor A

Mall Taman Anggrek



Expeditor A

Mall Emporium Pluit



Expeditor A

Mall Kota Kasablanka


In delivering your product from company to distributor, the company provides the expeditor with several vehicles. The information for each vehicle that can be used to calculate the total cost can be seen below:

  • Supplier selection with Method AHP

In this chapter enter the table of your weighting results (Eigen) between the criteria, the priority value of sub criteria in the criteria, and the table of priority value of the supplier in sub criteria.

  • Data Car A
    • Distance matrix car A
    • Saving matrix car A
    • Clarke and Wright saving heuristic for car A
    • Calculate each route with mode (nearest neighbor, nearest insert, farthest insert, ant colony algorithm, and bee colony algorithm)
  • Data Car B
    • Distance matrix car B
    • Saving matrix car B
    • Clarke and Wright saving heuristic for car B
    • Calculate each route with mode (nearest neighbor, nearest insert, farthest insert, ant colony algorithm, and bee colony algorithm)
  • Estimation cost per day
    • Comparison between Car A and B


  • In this chapter input the analysis of the priority order of selection of AHP criteria. In this chapter NO analysis of weighting numbers is included, but an analysis of the selected sequence.
  • Analyze best Method VRP
  • Analyze cost car A and car B
