The competition between the companies in the dynamic market conditions has made the Supply Chain Management (SCM) a more important issue. The companies which have organized their supply chain effectively have obtained more flexibility in their manufacturing processes in addition to delivery of the customer demands. In this study, two different multicriteria decision making algorithms composed of the FAHP and a holistic hybrid method using FTOPSIS were utilized for an electronic company in wholly fuzzy processes. The FAHP is used for determination of the global weights of the factors and the performances of alternative suppliers are evaluated by using both FAHP-based and FAHP-FTOPSIS hybrid methods for synthetic extent values of pairwise comparisons. The sequences of the suppliers differed for the algorithms. The performances of the proposed approaches are quite successful and flexible in a narrow interval. The managerial advantages obtained from the proposed fuzzy algorithms are also analyzed and interpreted.
