Abstract: The choice of suppliers is a matter of great importance in organizations. The cost, quality and delivery time provided to customers may depend to a large extent on this decision. This paper, therefore, describes a model applicable to a real organization, using multicriteria decision techniques to choose the best supplier of batteries. In order to establish concordance and discordance thresholds the values provided by the decision-maker of the company will be compared with those obtained by the fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process. Both valuations of the thresholds will be applied in the ELECTRE II technique.
