Abstract

En este trabajo se propone un procedimiento de agregacion de preferencias individuales, basado en el concepto de preferencias de segundo orden. Si la intensidad de la preferencia de cada miembro del grupo puede modelarse con una funcion de diferencia de valor aditivo, entonces la influencia de cada individuo en la decision del grupo es aproximadamente proporcional al valor de la diferencia entre la mejor y la peor alternativa. El problema de encontrar una funcion de diferencia de valor que representa una preferencia conocida de los posibles ordenamientos del conjunto de alternativas se resuelve como un problema de programacion lineal. Una aplicacion del procedimiento ha sido desarrollada con el entorno de programacion Delphi.
