Attribute Reduction in a Dispersed Decision-Making System with Negotiations

Conference paper
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 716)


The aim of the study was to apply rough set attribute reduction in a dispersed decision-making system. The system that was used was proposed by the author in a previous work. In this system, a global decision is taken based on the classifications that are by the base classifiers. In the process of decision-making, elements of conflict analysis and negotiations have been applied. Reduction of the set of conditional attributes in local decision tables was used in the paper. The aim of the study was to analyze and compare the results that were obtained after the reduction with the results that were obtained for the full set of attributes.
