The objective of this paper is to develop a hybrid decision making system using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and linguistic fuzzy models for selecting the best supplier in the presence of multiple decision makers. In this hybrid system, first the weights of selected criteria are obtained from each of the decision makers as linguistic fuzzy numbers within the framework of group decision making. Then, to select the best supplier, absolute weight restriction (AWR) model is incorporated into the DEA model. A real case study demonstrates the application of the model.
