Supplier selection is vital for enterprises to operate stably and achieve and sustain a competitive advantage. However, from the initial establishment to the gradual development and maturity of the enterprise, the supplier selection criteria change dynamically, and decision-makers are hardly in agreement in each stage, which creates challenges for enterprises when choosing suitable suppliers. As such, this paper proposes a multicriteria group decision-making method based on an interaction and feedback mechanism (IFM) and q-rung orthopair fuzzy sets theory. We introduce an IFM to achieve consensus among different decision-makers. We then develop the q-rung orthopair fuzzy weighted partitioned Bonferroni mean (q-ROFWPBM) operator to address the aggregation problem of dynamic multicriteria. A group decision-making algorithm combining the IFM and q-ROFWPBM operator is proposed to analyze the Hongxing Erke supplier selection. The results show that the proposed method can not only account for large differences of opinion among decision-makers during group decision-making but also consider the dynamic changes of supplier selection criteria in different stages of enterprise development and help enterprises choose suppliers suitable for their own development characteristics.
