Abstract: In the past firms mostly focused on the cost aspect of make or buy, giving less emphasis on the other determinants of make or buy decisions. Using non-additive fuzzy integrals, we model and rank a collection of multi-factor criteria for make or buy decision. Four component factors classified as resource base, transaction cost, firm size and external factors were analyzed and ranked. We observed that among these variables tested firm's resource base emerged as the highest decision criterion for in make or buy decision over transaction costs. This implies that a firm's resources (FR), proxied by resource availability, innovative competence, share risk/expertise and market penetration were more dominant that cost elements such as supplier competition, buyer experience, volume uncertainty, production cost advantage and technology uncertainty.
