Mohd Aminnur Hakim Sabtu (2017) Determine youth squad football position for Negeri Sembilan Football Association (NSFA) using decision tree technique / Mohd Aminnur Hakim Sabtu. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA.


The main purpose of this research is to produce a prototype that automatic resulting the suitable football position for the under 19 (U19) players of Negeri Sembilan Football Association (NSFA). This research only focus on basic position in football such as goalkeeper, center back, right and left back, midfielder, right and left winger, attacking midfielder and striker. There are 32 football characteristic that can lead in resulting these football position. By developing this prototype, coach of NSFA can get more confirmation for U19 position based on the player’s characteristic. There are lot of rules embedded to this prototype. This set of rules was generated by creating decision tree (DT). DT gives a clear view the rules involved. This project used waterfall model for the guideline for development. There are four (4) phases of methodology involved such as knowledge acquisition, requirement gathering and analysis, design and implementation. In each phase brings own deliverable and objective. All objectives have been achieved. For this project, the first objective started from phase two (2) which is requirement gathering and analysis. This phase contains two (2) objectives. The first one was to gather and analyze common characteristics for each football player and to classify football position characteristic. For the third phase objective in this research is to design the system for NSFA and last objective for the last phase is to design the system for NSFA. This research contains a lot of challenges. This research needs a lot of knowledge in data mining especially for DT classification technique. Other than that, there was a lot of interview conducted in order to get the data from the stakeholder and to understand the business process. This prototype has been develop using JAVA as programming language and oracle as a database for store the data. At the end of this project, Football Position Decision Maker (FPDM) was able to generate recommendation of football position for U19 football squad. This result ease coach in order to get the confirmation of U19 football position. This project needs some enhancement, one of the potential enhancement that can be seen to be developed is increase the system security. This system used email for send verification to the coach. In a future enhancement, this verification can be encrypt and only can be decrypt only by current coach of NSFA in nearly future.
