Designing and Implementing an Organoleptic Test Application for Food Products Using Android Based Decision Tree Algorithm

Radius Tanone, Hendra Budi Prasetya


The development of food and beverage products increases over the years. The high level of food consumption led to the presence of new food and beverage brands produced in Salatiga. In accordance with this fact, Organoleptic Tests or in other words evaluation of food products could be conducted well if the obtained dataset had a complete, rapid, and accurate information. The required information could be clarified into the dataset that was used to calculate the testing. Manually calculating the process was a problem that usually appeared. As a result, losing or having a broken report on the organoleptic test often occurred. Mileage of the research setting became another problem that appeared when the research conducted out of the town, Salatiga. A combination of R&D method and application of algorithm was implemented in this research by using the performed stages. These stages started from the identification of problems to the testing of the systems. During the process of organoleptic testing, Weka 3.8.2 was used as a tool to test the C4.5 algorithm and an implementation of the applied algorithm on the android. The results of this study revealed that the average classification accuracy of the J48 algorithm in Weka could achieve above 90% accuracy and average score of hedonic scaling system was in “agree” category. It also showed that the algorithm and the testing of the systems which implemented on android has a credible performance in classifying data.
