Abstract

The increase in the number of and development of world-class five-star tourist hotels in Taiwan is an important international tourism quality index that cannot be ignored. This study uses Fuzzy Multiple Criteria Decision Making (FMCDM) theory combined with the Expert Opinion method to provide appropriate evaluation criteria weights and fuzzy numbers, and uses Fuzzy Ranking methods for ranking based on an integrated assessment to serve as the basis and reference for the "Best Five-Star Tourist Hotel Service Quality Award". This study is based on a sample rating of 8 participating hotels, supplemented by relevant literature for more in-depth discussions, and puts forward relevant practical and research proposals.

In this study, the primary interviewed research targets are consumers in Taipei, convenience sampling is adopted as the sampling method, Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) is used to verify the goodness-of-fit between the Overall Model, its Structural Model and Measurement Model. The research findings show that Taipei consumers': (1) Attitude has a significant positive effect on their behavioral intention; (2) Subjective norm has a significant positive effect on their behavioral intention; and (3) Perceived behavioral control has a significant positive effect on their behavioral intention to buy the tablet computer of a certain domestic brand.

Abstract

Efforts to make the estimated production of OER to be generated in the next year, especially in the early years of the work plan based on the age of oil palm trees can not be separated from the input parameters are estimated CPO production previous year (t), Realization CPO production previous year (h) Estimated production of CPO next year (t') and Estimated production of FFB next year (T). Total plantations, blocks, comprehensive,different age-month year of planting and palm trees will slow down and complicate the decision-making process to predict the production of OER. Decision support system is a system that makes it easier and faster to make decisions. This research aims to develop a decision support system to predict the production of OER. Stages of research include the identification of a problem, literature review, data collection, analysis of yield and OER, system requirements analysis, building system design, system implementation and testing. The results of this study are based decision support system to predict SAP OER using ABAP programming language and DB2 database. This system has been developed comprising several features including uploading master - input, master and DSS report to the estimated production of OER.
