dc.description.abstractAn important issue to bear in mind in Group Decision Making situations is that of consistency. However, the expression of consistent preferences is often a very difficult task for the decision makers, specially in decision problems with a high number of alternatives and when decision makers use fuzzy preference relations to provide their opinions. It leads to situations where a decision maker may not be able to express all his/her preferences properly and without contradiction. To overcome this problem, we propose the concept of the information granularity being regarded as an important and useful asset supporting the goal to reach consistent fuzzy preference relations. To do so, we develop a concept of granular fuzzy preference relation where each pairwise comparison is formed as a certain information granule instead of a single numeric value. As being more abstract, the granular format of the preference model offers the required flexibility to increase the level of consistency.en
