Supplier Relationship Management is part of a research project called Strategic eSourcing that is supported by the PROFIT program of the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.
The goal of Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) is to stablish a technologic framework capable of giving support to the buying process. It evaluates the supply activity of a company in a process that is called strategic e-sourcing, and that is a fundamental element of any supply chain scenario.
The application SRM specifically focus in supplier performance. It computes a trust value from past evaluated orders. This trust measure is the key for selecting suppliers. Only trustful suppliers could be selected.
Trust in SRM is a complex concept. The work is published as a full paper at IEEE-DEST and as a AAMAS demonstration:
