Modeling Multiattribute Group Choice

ABSTRACT - This paper proposes a model of multiattribute group choice. The model explicitly accounts for differences among group members regarding: i) the power structure, and ii) the interest of each group member in each attribute. These differences lead to divergent views regarding how much influence each group member should have on the final outcome. So, a consensus mechanism, similar to the Delphi process, is provided to reconcile these differences. The final result is a set of predictions of the influence of each group member over each attribute.

The model explicitly accounts for differences among group members regarding: i) the power structure, and ii) the interest of each group member in each attribute. These differences lead to divergent views regarding how much influence each group member should have on the final outcome. So, a consensus mechanism, similar to the Delphi process, is provided to reconcile these differences. The final result is a set of predictions of the influence of each group member over each attribute.
