The Implementation of Rapid Application Development (RAD) Method at Aquaponics Cultivation Monitoring System
AbstrakAquaponics is a cultivation method that combines plant cultivation and freshwater fish farming. Aquaponics can be applied to a limited land such as house yard, which is very suitable to be applied in urban areas with limited land. Aquaponics cultivation requires a controlled environment and more maintenance and care compared to other cultivation techniques such as hydroponics, since cultivators must maintain and take care for both plants and fish at the same time. To get the maximum yields, it is necessary to control the time, ambient temperature, humidity value, water level, pH, and water temperature. The existing aquaponics farming that are carried out by farmers or cultivators in general still uses a simple system through measuring the pH level of the water (using the pH meter equipment), water level, water temperature, and ambient temperature, so that farmers or cultivators need more time and manpower to maintain and take care of the plants and fish. Therefore, we need a solution in the form of a monitoring system that can monitor the environmental conditions of plants and fish continuously throughout the day. The monitoring system developed has the ability to monitor time, ambient temperature, humidity, water level, pH, and water temperature. The system was developed using the rapid application development (RAD) system development method. The RAD consists of four stages: requirements planning; system design; construction; and cutover. The test result using the black box testing method prove that the monitoring system can monitor time, ambient temperature, humidity, water level, pH, and water temperature.
