A New Selection Process Based on Granular Computing for Group Decision Making Problems
In Group Decision Making, there are situations in which the decision makers may not be able to provide his/her opinions properly and they could contain contradictions. To avoid it, in this contribution, we present a new selection process to deal with inconsistent information. As part of it, we use a method based on granular computing to increase the consistency of the opinions given by the decision makers. To do so, each opinion is articulated as a certain information granule instead of a single numeric value, offering the necessary flexibility to increase the consistency. Finally, the importance of the decision makers’ opinions in the aggregation step is modeled by means of their consistency.
