Resumen: Consensus reaching processes (CRPs) in Group Decision Making (GDM) try to reach a mutual agreement among a group of decision makers before making a decision. To facilitate CRPs, multiple consensus models have been proposed in the literature. Classically, just a few decision makers participated in the CRP, however nowadays, the appearance of new technological environments and paradigms to make group decisions demand the management of larger scale problems that add new requirements to the solution of consensus. This contribution presents a study of a classical CRP applied to large-scale GDM in order to analyze its performance and detect which are the main challenges that these processes face in large-scale GDM. The analysis will be carried out in a java-based framework, AFRYCA 2.0, simulating different scenarios in large scale GDM.
