Based on the results found from the multicriteria decision analysis, it is observed that the option criterion of product variety was classified as the most important. Other criterions found were payment period, delivery time, delivery time, supplier service, price, product yield, and product quality. The objectives of the study were achieved, but some results contradict what was reported in the literature.
