Parametric aggregation in ordered weighted averaging

Amin, Gholam R. and Emrouznejad, Ali (2011). Parametric aggregation in ordered weighted averaging. International Journal of Approximate Reasoning, 52 (6), pp. 819-827.


Incorporating further information into the ordered weighted averaging (OWA) operator weights is investigated in this paper. We first prove that for a constant orness the minimax disparity model [13] has unique optimal solution while the modified minimax disparity model [16] has alternative optimal OWA weights. Multiple optimal solutions in modified minimax disparity model provide us opportunity to define a parametric aggregation OWA which gives flexibility to decision makers in the process of aggregation and selecting the best alternative. Finally, the usefulness of the proposed parametric aggregation method is illustrated with an application in metasearch engine. © 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
