Usually, a manufacture receives materials from one or more suppliers in a supply chain. Performance of each supplier in the chain affects on the chains’ performance. Thus, evaluating suppliers in a supply chain is important for achieving efficient supply chain. However, it is not easy to evaluate each members’ performance in a chain with traditional methods. In this paper, a new method for finding out weak points of chains is proposed. With the proposed method, we can find that which factors of which suppliers should be improved. Thus, manufacturers can make decision for improving or changing suppliers more easily. A case study of Thai frozen shrimp industry is represented to show the applicability of the proposed scheme.
