## Abstract

Decision making has become a routine activities carried out by the production manager at Sindora Palm Oil Mill. The decision making process does not always run smoothly, sometimes arisen obstacles because uncertainty and vagueness. The obstacles come from various factors of production such as capital, labour and raw materials and machine, and as well as other factors such as, suppliers, inventory and market demand. These obstacles will directly cause major problems if not dealt quickly and accurately. One of the problems that will arise is the declination of production quantity. In order to help the company to make a good decision, it requires some decision-making method to assist them. The objective of this study are to determining the optimal amount of crude palm oil production and to determine the order of priority factors that affects the production quantity. This thesis proposes methodologies for optimize the production quantity by using Fuzzy Inference System Tsukamoto and for determine the order priority factor by using Analytical Hierarchy Process. Monotonic Reasoning approach used in Fuzzy Inference System Tsukamoto to optimize the production quantity with the input data obtained from documents such as inventory, demand and production data. Meanwhile, mathematics approach used in the Analytical Hierarchy Process and the input data obtained from interviews and questionnaires. From this thesis, the results are determined and the analyses are made. The results have shown the total production and inventory of crude palm oil in 2014 turned into optimal and stable. Moreover, the profit in that year become higher than before. Furthermore, the main factors affecting the decline of production quantity in Sindora is an internal factor. The order of priority of the internal factor i.e. capital, labour, raw materials and technology (machine). Therefore, FIS Tsukamoto and AHP can be used in crude palm oil production planning because given more benefits to the company.
