For this paper consistency matrices were analysed. Those consistency matrices were identified as being different, three clusters have been founded. These clusters differ in the distributions of the evaluated values in matrix for triangular relationships.
To come to a semi-automatic algorithm for estimation of consistency values two major implications may be drawn from this empirical investigation:
According to the three cluster solution three different algorithms (or one algorithm with three different parameter settings) are needed. The authors are working with fuzzy rules for that goal.
To start an algorithm for a semi-automatic matrix filling in it has to be decided to which of the three clusters the only partially filled input matrix should be assigned. Therefore, experiments with discriminant analysis and case-based reasoning are conducted.
