چکیده مقاله:

Decision support for supplier selection is a highly researched theme in procurement management literature. Moreover, in the contemporary world the success will not come true unless by using scientific method and teamwork. It is conspicuous that the traditional methods won't lead to customer satisfaction any more. In this paper a fuzzy TOPSIS method is used for ranking and evaluating suppliers of polyurethane materials in shoe industry which have attracted lots of attention due to cost-effectiveness in production and frugality in the final prices.

Thus, the fuzzy environment is a fruitful area to clarify the ambiguity considering this case.
