Abstract

In the present study, the authors propose a group decision support system (Web-GDSS), which allows multi-agents systems and multicriteria analysis systems to help decision-makers in order to obtain a collective decision, using web services. The proposed system operates on two main stages. First, decision-makers are in a different location away from each other. They must store their location in databases and invoke the appropriate web service. Second, in the case of negotiation between decision-makers, monotonic concession protocol will lead to an agreement using CONDORCET and BORDA voting methods.

By the present work we would like to join two diverging ways (1) GDSS, where agents participate in making decisions as group and range criteria for which a solution should be reached and (2) negotiation protocols where a set of rules governing the interaction between agents has to find the best compromise to satisfy participants.
