Abstract

We introduce a complex decision-making problem, the prioritization of potential high-profit category segments to be sourced from low cost countries, where several conflicting criteria must be taken into account simultaneously to help focus the attention on developing low cost countries sourcing strategies for candidate segments, where potential savings are higher and risk is minimum. The GMAA system will be used for this purpose. It is a decision support system based on the Decision Analysis cycle that accounts for incomplete information concerning the inputs, where so-called decision-making with partial information plays a key role.
