The SE criteria and SS benefits were derived through extensive literature review and expert’s opinion.FindingsThe reliability, normality and validity of developed instrument/questionnaire were determined through the responses collected from the managers of 34 automobile industries in India and are found to be acceptable for most of the SE criteria and SS benefits. The criterion validity is also found to be fairly good for the developed instrument/questionnaire.Research limitations/implicationsWhile designing the instrument/questionnaire, SE criteria and SS benefits were considered for automobile sector in India through prequestionnaire sheet. Further, research may be required to corroborate these results from larger data sets.Practical implicationsNow a days, it is essential for organizations to rely on their suppliers for their survival and to gain competitive advantage. The well developed and validated instrument/questionnaire can be used for industry practitioners in Indian automobile industries to assess the SE criteria and SS benefits.Originality/valueAn empirically tested instrument/questionnaire is developed first time to assess the SE criteria and SS benefits for automobile sector in India.
