Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 143)


For the complete or incomplete preference information system, this paper proposes the multi-attribute group decision-making (MAGDM) security assessment method based on the variable consistency dominance-based rough set approach (VC-DRSA).By using the quality of sorting (QoS), this method combines VC-DRSA with the analytic hierarchy process (AHP), determines the security attribute weight and decision makers’ weight, and makes the security assessment of preference information system. Through the experiment about the stoke exchange network system and the comparison with other methods, the rationality and feasibility of the proposed method are validated.
