Sistem Pendukung Keputusan Seleksi Beasiswa Situbondo Unggul Menggunakan Metode Simple Additive Weighting dan Profile Matching
This study is about the use of simple additive weighting (SAW) and profile matching methods for the construction of information systems supporting the decision selection of scholarships.
