In this study, the organization performance is assessed at different levels. First, an ergonomic questionnaire determines the most effective factors in the efficiency of the system by the means of fuzzy data envelopment analysis (FDEA). The best FDEA model is selected by making perturbation in the data and calculating the correlation between rankings. Then, a standard questionnaire is distributed among the customers and the most important factor in customer satisfaction is discovered. At last, suppliers are ranked based on the most important criteria using Hierarchical TOPSIS method.
