Different entities in a supply chain network operate in a highly interdependent environment when it comes to improving performance of the network in terms of objectives such as delivery performance, quality assurance and cost minimization, etc. In this research, an attempt has been made to evaluate the supplier performance by adopting evolutionary fuzzy system owing to the linguistic nature of the attributes associated with the suppliers and manufacturing units. The proposed methodology offers consistently good performance when applied to a variety of standard problems related to evaluation of supplier's performance available in the literatures.
