The method of data envelopment analysis, which has characteristics such as multi-input, multi-output and poly-objectives of the evaluated objects, is applied into the selection of suppliers and the model based on it is established. Through using this method, suppliers to be chosen are falling into two kinds: technical efficiency and technical inefficiency, which make an objective for enterprises to select.
