Supply chain risk management involves identifying, ranking, and adopting appropriate strategies to control and deal with risks that could disrupt chain performance. These risks can be caused by different issues and descriptions and surveys about these risks are associated with uncertainty, ambiguity, qualitativeness and incomplete and sometimes contradictory information. Therefore, their ranking needs the techniques that can model the mentioned issues. neutrosophic logic makes it possible to model propositions with uncertainty, incomplete information, ambiguity, qualitativeness, and even inconsistency. Accordingly, the approach of the present study is to use a combined method of neutrosophic hierarchical analysis and TOPSIS for ranking the risk. Core of this paper is proposed a hybrid decision making method for identification and ranking of supply chain management by a Neutrosophic analytical hierarchy process and TOPSIS approach. The case study is Mobarakeh Steel Company of Isfahan and three criteria including resilience, agility and robustness are considered as major strategies to deal with risk and seventeen risk-related issues are ranked as options. The results show that government constraints, economic and environmental risks, inventory shortages, technology risk, forecast risk and financial (cash) problems are the most important risks threatening the supply chain. Therefore, we believe that the proposed framework provides managers with valuable knowledge for decision making.
