Performance Mapping of a Firm under Green Supply Chain Architectures-Integrated Operations

Received Date:30 January 2023, Accepted Date:06 March 2023, Published Date:25 March 2023


Objective: To measure the GSCM-Overall Fuzzy Performance Index (GSCMOFPI) of industry under integrated operations based GSCM module. Method: The author aids the Green Entrepreneurs (GEs) with Overall Fuzzy Performance Index (OFPI) approach to estimation the GSCM-OFPI of industry in the terms of Generalized Trapezoidal Fuzzy Set (GTFs), Crisp Value (CV) and % under proposed module. Finding: A hypothetical case research of gear manufacturing industry is exhibited to reveal the real life usage of presented research work. The GEs proposed the ideal limit of GSCM-OFPI such as 1 or 100% for benchmarking perspective. The findings are synchronized only with computation of GSCM-OFPI i.e., 0.80 in the terms of CV and 80 in %. GE is advised to accelerate GSCM-OFPI=0.20 to maintain future GSCM-OFPI. Work model is useful for finding GSCM-OFPI and work is limited only for mapping GSCM-OFPI of an individual firm. Novelty: A novel approach has been proposed to evaluate the GSCM-OFPI of a case study firm by overcoming the drawbacks of previous presented research forum, which added the unique features in research work.
