This article is a second part of the contribution on the analysis of the recently-proposed class of symmetric maxitive, minitive and modular aggregation operators. Recent results (Gagolewski, Mesiar, 2012) indicated some unstable behavior of the generalized h-index, which is a particular instance of OM3, in case of input data transformation. The study was performed on a small, carefully selected real-world data set. Here we conduct some experiments to examine this phenomena more extensively.
