Evaluation in Component Technology Small Scale Food Industry Cluster in West Sumatera

Gunarif Taib, - Santosa, Masrul Djalal, - Helmi


The development of small-scale food industry cluster is influenced by the technology component. Because it required accurate information about the importance of existing technology components. This study aims to evaluate the technology components that are known several important factors that need to be improved so that clusters of small-scale food industries can thrive. This research using the program Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to determine the level of importance of each variable based on its value. The survey results revealed that each technology component has a value as follows: technoware component of the operation of the order is a factor (0.2889), quality of raw materials (0.2770), improvement of production efficiency (0.1894), the fulfillment of production capacity (0.1717), technology adoption (0.0489) and resource technologies (0.0242). Components of the order value is organoware environmental management factor (0.6267), marketing management (0.2797) and production management (0.0936). Components infoware order value is a factor of production records (0.6267), the promotion of products (0.2797) and documentation effort (0.0936). Humanware component order is the motivation factor (0.5022), the trust fellow members (0.1883), knowledge manager (0.1854), the management skills (0.0817) and innovation (0, 0425).
