Most instances like developing technology, scarce sources, and global warming have brought about an ongoing perspective with Sustainable SCM and Green SCM starting from Traditional SCM. Supplier selection in all these processes is a decision-making process playing a significant role in the success of enterprises. The most critical point in this decision-making process is the criteria used in the supplier selection process because they directly affect the selection of supplier that is appropriate for the strategy of the enterprise. In this chapter, the optimal quantity of products to be purchased from suppliers were determined through a solution offer that authors named as compromise optimal system design. For the recommended solution, first, a new model was introduced by arranging Multiobjective Supplier Selection problem based on the De Novo assumption, and then Compromise Programming was used for the solution of this model. The developed solution procedure was used to determine the amount of blending machine to be purchased from the green supplier of a milling machine manufacturer.
