Yager (Fuzzy Sets Syst 2003;137:59–69) extended the idea of order-induced aggregation to the Choquet aggregation and defined a more general type of Choquet integral operator called the induced Choquet ordered averaging (I-COA) operator, which take as their argument pairs, in which one component called order-inducing variable is used to induce an ordering over the second components called argument variable and then aggregated. The aim of this paper is to develop the I-COA operator. Some of its properties are investigated. We show its relationship to the induced-ordered weighted averaging operator. Finally, we provide some I-COA operators to aggregate fuzzy preference relations in group decision-making problems. © 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
