Abstract

Efforts to maintain the quality of meat products can not be separated from the selection of appropriate packaging with the characteristics of the meat product itself. The amount of meat characteristics and packaging properties will slow down and complicate the decision-making process when choosing the appropriate packaging. Decision support system is a system that makes it easy and quick to make decisions. This research aims to develop a decision support system for determining the appropriate packaging of meat products. A C4.5 decision tree algorithm was used in generating the rules to determine the meat product packaging. Stages of the research include problem identification, literature review, data collection, meat and packaging analysis, system requirement analysis, building the system design, system implementation, and testing. The result of this research is a web-based decision support system for selecting of meat packaging using PHP programming language and MySQL database. The system has been developed to consist some features including user profiles, selecting of meat product packaging, a list of meat products packaging, a list of meat product parameters, and user comments.
