The Coordination of Group Preference Based on Compatible Relation

Yingying WU


A number of theoretical approaches to preference relations for multiple attribute group decision making (MAGDM) problem. Consistency among the preference relations is very important to the result of the final decision. This paper is proposed procedure which based on compatible preference relation sets to solve multiple attribute group decision making problems. These sets are satisfied all experts additive consistency and determine weight of expert on every attribution. Moreover, we can adjust assessment of expert though the sets. Finally a numerical example is used to test the proposed approach and the results illustrate that the method is simple, effective, and practical.
