A Conceptual Model Design of Seaweed Agroindustry Logistic System: A case study in the South Sulawesi, Indonesia

Sarinah Sarinah, Syamsul Maarif, Hartrisari Hardjomidjojo, Luky Adrianto


The objective of this research is to design a conceptual model for seaweed agro-industry logistic system through a case study in the South Sulawesi Indonesia. Two stage approaches were used to develop the conceptual model. The first stage employed a system analysis in which an entity approach was employed. The second and final stage was a graphical conceptual modeling design where Business Process Modelling Notation 2 (BPMN 2.0) was used. The existing logistic system in the study area was verified and validated using the conceptual approach.

The system analysis stage reveals a comprehensive yet interrelated logistical system of seaweed agro-industry in the study area such as entity structures, responsible stakeholders, system inputs, system processes (process attributes, capabilities, performances, products, by-products, and services), system outputs, roles, system objectives and missions, threats, opportunities, resources, controls, physical constraints. Using the notation in BPMN 2.0, the study developed a graphical representation of the working logistical system in the area. This model produces a graphical conceptual model of seaweed agro-industry logistic system in the South Sulawesi that describes the system behavior.
