The main purpose of this research is to provide a good insight into the use of analytic network process (ANP) that is a multiple criteria decision-making methodology in evaluating supplier selection problems. Supplier selection problems are complex problems, which have many qualitative and quantitative concerns. In this study, an ANP model as a framework for evaluation purpose, the most important factor and selecting strategic supplier is proposed. Analytic network process can be use as a decision analysis tool to solve multi-criteria supplier selection problems that contain interdependencies. ANP is a complex methodology and requires more comparisons than the traditional AHP and it increases the effort. To show the application of the proposed model a case as an example is proposed.
