Abstract: Supplier evaluation and selection is an important step during the manufacturing process for a product to meet quality requirements. This paper proposes a new supplier evaluation and selection model based on quality matchable degree. In this model, the quantitative and qualitative indicators are involved to describe the quality assurance of suppliers and the manufacturer. The matchable degree of the supplier is calculated according to the quality level of the manufacturer. The multivariate quality loss function method is used to determine the score of each supplier. The implementation of the proposed model is also given in details. An example is presented to illustrate the implementation of the proposed model. The proposed model is compared with other methods are summarised. [Submitted 05 August 2018; Accepted 30 September 2018]
