Assessment of potentially competent suppliers and selection of the right one(s) is a vital component of supply chain management which has received wide attention in recent years. An extensive range of decision making methods have been suggested to handle the supplier selection problem by a large number of authors in this area. The supplier selection problem is often faced by ambiguity and vagueness in practice and very often decision makers express their preferences in linguistic terms instead of numerical values. So, this paper intends to review the literatures on multi-criteria decision making methods in uncertain environment. Thirty-eight international journal articles published between 2008 and 2011 have been surveyed for this purpose. The articles are analysed to summarize the existing methods and the most popular method is identified and presented in this paper. Finally, suggestions for future researches are proposed for academics and decision makers
