Algorithm Based on Multi-Criteria Decision and Tabu Search on Multi - Agent Negotiation

Arghavan Razavieh
2017 International Journal of Emerging Research in Management and Technology  
This search usually is done as a singlecriterion in which agents negotiate on the unit criterion that typically is price.  ...  The various agents of the buyer and seller in such system bargain for the criteria such as price, warranty and shipping time, and a variety of weights and values are assigned to these criteria.in fact,  ...  On the buyer side, because in our model the values for the attributes represent quality labels, the distances between utilities assigned to each label can be interpreted as how "quality conscious" or selective  ...
