It is shown that partner selection in agile supply chain network can be represented as a directed graph model. This paper considers multi-stages in this process instead of one. The natures of the proposed model enable us to design a meta-heuristic algorithm -- GACA which combined the pros part of ACOA and GA for solving the good path search problem. Computational results show the efficiency of our algorithm in compare to the other techniques.
