Indonesia is a country that has a variety of plants that can be used as herbal medicines, including the use of herbal medicines for coughing.

The algorithm used is Elimination and Choice Expressing Reality (ELECTRE) with the outranking concept using pairwise comparisons of alternatives based on each appropriate criterion. The research design used in building this system is structured UML and Software used by PHP and MySql for database processing. The results of this study are an application that is able to recommend herbs that are appropriate for each web-based cough category where electre will determine the ranking of the best alternatives of several types of herbal medicines according to the category or type of cough.
