Abstract: Alliance member selection is the precondition to implement networked manufacturing. For three kinds of the evaluation indexes: accurate number type, interval number type and fuzzy number type, the TOPSIS mixed multidimensional decision-making method is put forth. The method uses factors such as price, quality, network information level, networked condition and credit in alliance member selection to evaluate the alliance member. After selecting the alliance member, we study a two-stage supply chain coordination model based on revenue-sharing contract. Through Stackelberg game analysis, some factors such as revenue-sharing proportion, order quantity, wholesale price were discussed. Then the coordination strategies were found. Numerical simulation based on MATLAB was used to get the results in this kind of contract. It indicates that the supply chain has great profit loss when punishment factor existed.
