Correspondence A New Consensus Model for Group Decision Making Problems With Non-Homogeneous Experts

By Ignacio Javier Pérez, Francisco Javier Cabrerizo, Sergio Alonso and Enrique Herrera-viedma


Abstract—In the literature, we find that the consensus models proposed for group decision making problems are guided by consensus degrees and/or similarity measures and/or consistency measures [1]. When we work in heterogeneous group decision making frameworks, we have im-portance degrees associated with the experts by expressing their different knowledge levels on the problem. Usually, the importance degrees are applied in the weighted aggregation operators developed to solve the decision situations. In this paper, we study another application possibility, i.e., to use heterogeneity existing among experts to guide the consensus model. Thus, the main goal of this paper is to present a new consensus model for heterogeneous group decision making problems guided also by the heterogeneity criterion. It is also based on consensus degrees and similarity measures, but it presents a new feedback mechanism that adjusts the amount of advice required by each expert depending on his/her own relevance or importance level. Index Terms—Consensus process, feedback mechanism, group decision making, heterogeneity. I
