SISTEM PENDUKUNG KEPUTUSAN UNTUK PROSES PENERIMAAN BEASISWA MENGGUNAKAN METODE SIMPLE ADDITIVE WEIGHTING
AbstractEach year, the cost of education always increase continuously. There are some students who can’t continue their education because they can’t afford the cost. With the scholarships offered by university, government or other private institutions, can be used to help students who are having problem with the cost. Some university still using manual scholarship management that need long processes, so the computer-based system are needed to manage the scholarship selection with more efficient. The type of system that can be used to manage the scholarship is a decision support system. The system developed using the Waterfall methodology that divided into four phase, namely requirement definition phase, system design phase, implementation phase, and integration and system testing phase. For the selection algorithm, Simple Additive Weighting method is used and combined with Microsoft Visual C#.NET programming language and Microsoft SQL Server Express database. Black box testing dan white box testing method are using to test the system. Decision support system for scholarship selection can be use to provide an alternative decision for the committee for the consideration in the selection of scholarship candidates.
