This study focuses on the importance of information systems in today's intensely competitive business landscape. Companies of all sizes rely on information systems to stay afloat, streamline operations, and make informed decisions based on accurate data. To remain competitive, a medium-sized company specializing in vending motorcycle accessories and spare parts faced various challenges, including determining the best supplier for each item. To address this issue, a decision support system was developed using the Simple Additive Weighting technique. This method calculates the weighted sum of performance evaluations for each option based on all qualities. The system underwent user acceptance testing and achieved a flawless success rate of 100%. Overall, this study highlights the crucial role of decision support systems in enabling businesses to make strategic decisions based on accurate and reliable data.
