Because of the heavy competition between businesses and uncertainty in market conditions, attainment of complete and certain information flow becomes harder. Especially, in evaluations with linguistic varibles, because of the uncertainty in speaking language, there exists some fuzinesses. In fuzzy environments like this, decision making with fuzzy numbers is rather important. The aim of this study is, to put forward drawbacks of extended analysis technique, which is developed for solving multi criteria decision making problems with Fuzzy
Analytic Hierarchy Process (FAHP) and evaluation of the applicability of FAHP for supplier selection. In fuzzy environments, operations with imprecise data are so important in terms of decision making. FAHP is a decision making tool that supports evaluation of quantitative and qualitative criteria simultaneously. In this study, a bread factory’s flour supplier selection process is evaluated by FAHP and extended analysis and total integral techniques are compared. As a result of the comparison, total integral technique has more appropriate conclusions.

Keywords:Fuzzy Sets, Triangular Fuzzy Numbers, Fuzzy Multiple Criteria Decision Making, FAHP, Supplier Selection In Fuzzy Environment.
