The chitin and chitosan industry development is motivated by its wide application of chitin and chitosan as biopolymer and by its potential raw material from crustacean shell which is known as waste in shrimp processing industry, to help reducing the environment pollution. Indonesia only has three establish chitin and chitosan industries, all centralized in Java Island. Non-Java location expansion is required in order to support industrialization focus of government policy. This paper presents a system analysis and design with Business Process Modeling and Notation to select best location for a new initiative of chitin and chitosan industry. Several steps for location selection formed alternatives of location by identifying selection criteria for chitin and chitosan industry, and eventually deciding the best location. The Pairwise Comparison Method was deployed in deciding the best location and supported with Comparative Performance Index Method. The computation results revealed that North Sumatera Province is the best location for a new chitin and chitosan industry.
