Abstract -
A decision support system (DSS) plays an important role in accurately determining optimal solutions or decisions in a variety of ways, including the activity of selecting most appropriate major for prospective students. This work aims to develop a computer-based DSS the most appropriate major using Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) based on the following determinant variables, the first is national exam scores (mathematics, Bahasa Indonesia, English, and Natural Science); the second, Interesting to the majors (prospective-students choice); and the third, test question scores. The results show that the computer-based DSS has worked properly, effective and accurate to determine major of the prospective student in a vocational school.
