Multi-granulation rough set is a generalization of Rough Set Theory (RST) in order to adapt to cases that there are multiple relations in the universe. To allow Dominance-based Rough Set Approach (DRSA) being applied in multiple relations cases, we propose a multi-granulation model based on DRSA. A numerical example is employed to validate the rationality and feasibility of our model.
