Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of NAUN Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to analyze the effects of the factors and determine the importance of these factors to the LO relationship with the desire to improve the efficiency in logistics activities of the supply chain. An integrated approach including Fuzzy Interpretation Structure Model (FISM), Fuzzy Cross-Impact Matrix Multiplication Applied to Classification (FMICMAC) analysis, Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (FAHP) is structured in reaching this purpose. Specifically, the impact of factors on the LO relationship will be determined through the FISM-FMICMAC method, then FAHP will use the results from this FISM-FMICMAC analysis step to perform the determination of the level of importance of contributing factors to the LO relationship. The fuzzy number formats of this paper are all in trapezoidal format. To evaluate the proposed framework, a typical example of logistics activity in the Mekong Delta Rice Supply Chain (SuC) was selected. The results have shown the impact level of 14 factors on the LO relationship under 4 clusters (Dependent, Linkage, Independent Autonomous). Finally, only the 10 most outstanding of the 14 factors were used to conduct FAHP analysis to find the global weightages which contribute to the LO relationship by each factor.
