Virtual enterprise (VE) is an important form of enterprise alliance to cope with global competition and mass customization. In this form of alliance, the selection of the right partners is crucial. In this research, a mathematical model based on Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is presented, and five factors, namely, cost, time, quality, risk, and reputation are considered in this model. A hybrid PSO-ACO algorithm is proposed to obtain the optimal solution for partner selection for a VE. The fuzzy analytical hierarchy process is adopted to resolve the subjective and imprecise information, as well as the vague preferences in the partner selection process. © 2011 Scrivener Publishing LLC.
