Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The approach described in this paper aims to support multicriteria choice and ranking of actions when the input preference information acquired from the decision maker is a graded comprehensive pairwise comparison (or ranking) of reference actions. It is based on decision-rule preference model induced from a rough approximation of the graded comprehensive preference relation among the reference actions. The set of decision rules applied to a new set of actions provides a graded fuzzy preference relation, which can be exploited by weighted-fuzzy net flow score or lexicographic-fuzzy net flow score procedure to obtain a final recommendation in terms of the best choice or of the ranking.
