    This article describes the application of the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) to the supplier selection decision for the strategic development of lean suppliers at a large German industrial company. In a literature survey and from explorative interviews, relevant criteria including supplier improvement potential through buyer involvement, strategic factors of the supplier development program as well as project success factors in supplier development were elaborated. Subsequently a decision model based on the analytic hierarchy process was developed and applied to the supplier selection. All steps of the model development are described in detail and the application of the model is illustrated
