TFT-LCD is a capital-intensive and technology-intensive industry with short economic cycle and refined technology. TFT-LCD products are made from many components. Therefore the TFT-LCD suppliers need to acquire quick response, satisfactory production techniques and excellent quality to make this industry grow prosperously and continually. In addition, because the cost of TFT-LCD components are as high as 70% of a final product, a missing component would hinder TFT-LCD panel industry from functioning properly. As a result, choosing a supplier that carries high quality sources, reasonable prices and fine technology all greatly affect the overall TFT-LCD industry. TFT-LCD industry has been growing prosperously in Taiwan in the last couple of years. The high demands generate tremendous growth in TFT-LCD industry in terms of value. The vertical production of TFT-LCD industry also established opportunities for TFT-LCD upstream channels; this consequently provides more choosing opportunities for suppliers as well. How to objectively select a cooperative partner among the upstream channels to reduce risks has become a challenge for procurement strategists. This research merges advice from TFT-LCD procurement managers, references and statistical studies to figure out the main concerns, factors and variables of procurement managers when choosing a suitable TFT-LDC supplier. Analysis in relation to hierarchy and Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to acquire the weight of each variable was also conducted in this research. The main purpose of this research is to obtain evaluative factors and variables for TFT-LCD industry to find a suitable supplier.
