The supplier segmentation literature offers many frameworks, which differ in terms of supplier groupings and segmenting variables. Our purpose is to offer a wider framework by conceptually integrating these models and testing it with data from a major Turkish white goods manufacturer. Moreover, the study aims to integrate supplier segmentation with supplier selection and evaluation.
