A new business practices like Collaborative Planning Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR) has emerged as a promising solution to eliminate demand and supply uncertainty through improved coordination and communicationsbetween supply chain partners. One of the critical decisions in CPFR implementation is the selection of strategic partners that will furnish necessary information and materials in a timely and effective manner. But, supplier selection is a complicated process. This process needs evaluation of multiple criteria and various constraints associated with them. Therefore, an Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is used for supplier selection problem. In AHP technique the alternatives are weight under multiple attributes thereby developing a numerical score to rank each decision alternatives based on how well each alternative meets them. Finally, this paper draws conclusions on the need for an AHP approach in order to select the optimal supplier in CPFR.
