This paper proposes a decision making model for the selection of an appropriate alternative to supply Eucalyptus wood as raw material for paper and wood industries in India. A total of four major control criteria; benefits, opportunities, costs and risks (BOCR) are used to evaluate the procurement mechanism of the supply chain network. The Benefits, Opportunities, Costs and Risks associated with paper making factories and the region in the Indian scenario is critically examined The decision-making is examined within the framework of BOCR and prioritized using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) ratings approach. To evaluate the control criteria of the system, a control hierarchy is also created and prioritized by applying the Analytic Network Process (ANP). Governmental purchase, Captive Plantation and Gate purchase are considered as the potential alternatives for Eucalyptus supply. The final outcome of the model gives a ranking among the various potential alternatives.

Abstract


This paper proposes a decision making model for the selection of an appropriate alternative to supply Eucalyptus wood as raw material for paper and wood industries in India. A total of four major control criteria; benefits, opportunities, costs and risks (BOCR) are used to evaluate the procurement mechanism of the supply chain network. The Benefits, Opportunities, Costs and Risks associated with paper making factories and the region in the Indian scenario is critically examined The decision-making is examined within the framework of BOCR and prioritized using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) ratings approach. To evaluate the control criteria of the system, a control hierarchy is also created and prioritized by applying the Analytic Network Process (ANP). Governmental purchase, Captive Plantation and Gate purchase are considered as the potential alternatives for Eucalyptus supply. The final outcome of the model gives a ranking among the various potential alternatives.
