Pascale Zaraté
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We combine two approaches in order to support a group of farmers engaged in this kind of decision making process.  ...  Based on this set of solution we then used a Group Decision Support System called GRUS for choosing the best solution for the group of farmers.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors acknowledge the Project 691249, RUC-APS: Enhancing and implementing Knowledge based ICT solutions within high Risk and Uncertain Conditions for Agriculture Production Systems  ...
