Abstract From the performance plus resilience prospective, a manufacturer’s supplier evaluation index system, composed of three dimensions of cooperation resilience, operation resilience and performance, is established with supply capability and stability taken into account. The entropy value method is used to determine index weights based on proper measurement of these indexes. Considering insufficient effectiveness verification for existing evaluation methods, the TOPSIS technique is integrated with case reasoning method to assess resilience and performance of suppliers. The following findings are obtained. Firstly, the proposed method combining the TOPSIS and case reasoning can more effectively improve satisfaction of supplier evaluation; Secondly, interrupted suppliers often have higher cooperation resilience, lower outsourcing stability, operation and information resilience. Moreover, most of them belong to small or medium-sized suppliers. Thirdly, through time series analysis, large core suppliers score higher for their operation stability, comparatively lower in internal operation management for large general suppliers. For medium or small general suppliers, their annual evaluation values fluctuate the most and their operation resilience shall be further enhanced to guarantee supply stability.
