The objectives of this study were to (1) examine the temperature level and to (2) investigate the temperature period for the production of the banana chips drying (Musa (ABB) 'Namwa Kap Khao').  The methodology of this research was divided into 2 steps: The first step employed a completely randomized design (CRD) with 3 treatments and 5 replications, including 45, 50 and 55 degree Celsius, in order to select the temperature level affecting, on moisture content of the banana was in accordance with the dried banana Thai SMEs standard, and the second step used a completely randomized design (CRD) with 3 treatments and 5 replications including 14, 15 and 16 hours, respectively. Mean differences were also analyzed using Kruskal-Wallis One-way Analysis of Variance by Ranks at the 0.05 level of significance. The results showed that the optimum temperature structure for the production of the banana chips drying (Musa (ABB) 'Namwa Kap Khao') was a temperature level of 45 degree Celsius in 16 hours of the temperature period in which the moisture content of the banana was 23.13±2.24 and accordance with the dried banana Thai SMEs standard.
