The paper gives a method for obtaining the Möbius constant and the Möbius function for a semigroup with more than two generators, in some particular cases. Some known semigroups are considered, as well as the semigroup generated by the form $$xbc+yac+zab$$, where a,b,c are relatively prime natural numbers or the semigroup generated by the form $$ax+by$$, where a,b are relatively prime natural numbers different from 1.
