Credibility of knowledge grid members who act as a cooperative decision making community, affects the degree of accuracy of the decisions made. Apparently, decisions made by a decision maker should be affected by the degree of the decision maker’s credibility. The problem is how to estimate decision makers’ credibility within a knowledge grid environment, specially, those environments in which the number of decision makers is altered dynamically. In this article, a new approach to estimate the credibility of decision makers based upon the opinion of the other members of decision makers’ community within a dynamic knowledge grid environment is proposed.
