Risk analysis of arabica coffee supply chain in Aceh Tengah regency, Aceh Province, Indonesia





Aceh Tengah is the largest coffee plantation in Aceh. The area of coffee plantation in Aceh Tengah is 49,251 Ha.  However, problems and uncertainities ofter occur in agriculture business. Arabica coffee supply chain actors often faced with several risks. That risks can hamper the supply chain opperational process. Supply chain risk that are often faced are production, quality, price and human risk. The purpose of this study are to identify the causes and consequances of risks and the level of risks in each supply chain actor. Risk identification was done using an approach of what-if analysis, and risk evaluation was developed using fuzzy FMEA model.  The result shows that the higher to lower level of supply chain risk of 4 variables are (1) Price (632 FRPN), (2) Grade (500 FRPN), and (3) Production and Human (461 FRPN).

Key words: Arabica coffee; Fuzzy FMEA; Supply chain risk.
