Simulation Modeling of Tablet PCs Selection Using Weighted-Product Algorithm


Journal Article


The combination about innovation arts, technology, marketing, and ideas among mobile (smart) phones and notebook computers, revolutionary has led to the birth of a handheld device called as the Tablet PCs. Where, the Tablet PCs was a product that transforming from the minimization of notebook computer. In other words, it can be said as a handheld device that has an 'almost' similar performance as a notebook computer but has a more compact and smaller size dimension than the notebook computers and has a bigger dimension than the smart-phones also. The problem is there were so many variations of Tablet PCs products on the market. Therefore, the question often arises about the Tablet PCs is, "which one the most-suitable product for my purposes"? In this study modeled a simulation process for Tablet PCs selection using the eight domains of weighting criteria. Which from our perspective these eight domains of weighting criteria are an 'objective' measurement for assessing the Tablet PCs products. As a decision support tool that implementing a method of Multi-Attribute Decision Making (MADM) technique using Weighted-Product (WP) algorithm approach, where WP serves a means to give product recommendations to the users about the most-suitable products for them based on priority ranking mechanism.
