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.

It is shown that ANP can be used 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.
Provides an effective framework to guide managers for evaluating suppliers.
