One important component that supports the performance of production SMEs is Supply Chain Management because Supply Chain Management or SCM integrates the raw material procurement process to the sales process. One of the important parts of SCM for the procurement of raw materials for SME production is determining the best supplier who can provide raw materials with several predetermined criteria such as competitive prices, quality products and others. However, the selection of suppliers who provide raw materials for SMEs is currently still done manually, resulting in inappropriate supplier selection decisions. On the other hand, a Decision Support System or DSS is a computer-based system built to assist the decision-making process by considering criteria and alternatives. Thus, the purpose of this research is to build a DSS model to help SMEs determine the best supplier. The research method uses a qualitative approach through observation to SMEs to see problems related to supplier selection. Literature studies are used to find alternative solutions with information technology.
