Abstract: A Sustainable Supplier Selection in supply chain becomes a key strategic evaluation to sustain in a competitive manufacturing environment. Thus, a careful consideration in supplier selection should be identified and prioritised. For this reason, the studies were carried out to determine and analyse the elements that contributes to the establishment of the sustainable supplier selection. To investigate the effectiveness of Sustainable Supplier Selection in the manufacturing Industry, a questionnaire was chosen to collect data from experts. Using a Decision Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) method a Causal model was then established. These model shows that the priorities for Work System Performance (WSP) is WSP 4 (Manufacturing Cost Reduction). This finding is significant for manufacturing firm to establish a sustainable supplier in the supply chain management. Highly focuses on all these factors as a part of in their decision making stage for supplier selection will ensure their operation are in the sustainable manufacturing environment.
Keywords: Sustainable Supplier Selection, DEMATEL, Work System Performance, Manufacturing Environment.
