Supplier selection in developing countries: a model development

Supplier selection in developing countries: a model development This paper attempts to fill a void in supplier selection research by developing a model for sourcing and purchasing in an international setting, particularly in developing countries. The emphasis of this model is to reduce the uncertainty of quality from these countries by not only determining quality through the standard avenues of selection such as ranking, rating, and comparison strategies, but by also looking in depth at the region and country involved as a supply source. International, regional, and country-specific regulations on exports are included as sources of information regarding quality of products from developing countries. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Integrated Manufacturing Systems Emerald Publishing

Abstract

This paper attempts to fill a void in supplier selection research by developing a model for sourcing and purchasing in an international setting, particularly in developing countries. The emphasis of this model is to reduce the uncertainty of quality from these countries by not only determining quality through the standard avenues of selection such as ranking, rating, and comparison strategies, but by also looking in depth at the region and country involved as a supply source. International, regional, and country-specific regulations on exports are included as sources of information regarding quality of products from developing countries.
